1 The fool° has asaid° in his heart°, “There° is no° God°.”
They are corrupt°, they have committed° abominable° Ideeds°;

To see° if there° are any° who Ibunderstand°,

3 They have all° aturned° aside°, together° they have become° corrupt°;
There° is bno° one° who does° good°, not even° one°.

5 There° they are in great° dread°,
For God° is with the arighteous° generation°.
6 You would put° to shame° the counsel° of the afflicted°,
