Book Second
1. To the chief musician upon Mahaleth; a psalm of instruction of David, 2. The fool hath said in his heart there is no God: they have done corruptly, they have done abominably [in] iniquity; there is none doing good.
3. God hath looked down from heaven upon the sons of man to see if there is any one understanding, seeking after God.
4. Every one hath departed; together they have become corrupt; there is none doing good, there is not even one.
5. Have not the workers of iniquity known, eating up my people [as] they have eaten bread? they have not called upon God.
6. There have they greatly feared [where] there was no fear; for God hath scattered the bones of him who was encamping against thee: thou hast put [them] to shame, for God hath rejected them.
7. Who will give out of Zion the salvation of Israel? When God turneth the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice and Israel shall be glad.
