The Folly and Wickedness of Men

141 To the Overseer.—By David. A fool hath said in his heart, 'God is not;' They have done corruptly, They have done abominable actions, There is not a doer of good. 2 Jehovah from the heavens Hath looked on the sons of men, To see if there is a wise one—seeking God. 3 The whole have turned aside, Together they have been filthy: There is not a doer of good, not even one.

4 Have all working iniquity not known? Those consuming my people have eaten bread, Jehovah they have not called. 5 There they have feared a fear, For God 'is' in the generation of the righteous. 6 The counsel of the poor ye cause to stink, Because Jehovah 'is' his refuge. 7 'Who doth give from Zion the salvation of Israel? When Jehovah doth turn back 'To' a captivity of His people, Jacob doth rejoice—Israel is glad!
