(Of the Director; of David’s.)
14 A rascal has said to himself
“There is no God.”
They behave viciously, abominably;
there is nobody that does what is good.
2 Jehovah looked from the heavens upon mankind
to see if there was a canny man,
one that looked to God:
3 The whole lot had drawn off together, had degenerated,
there was nobody that did what was good, not a single one.
4 Do all who perpetrate villainy not know?
those who eat up my people eat bread, never call on Jehovah,—
5 There they are seized with terror,
because God breaks up an ungodly man’s plan;
6 You shall put them to shame,
because Jehovah has repudiated them.
7 O for Israel’s salvation coming from Sion!
When Jehovah comes back to his people
Jacob will jubilate, Israel make merry.
