THE foolish body hath said in his heart : There is no God.
2 Corrupt are they, and become abominable in their wickedness : there is none that doeth good.
3 God looked down from heaven upon the children of men : to see if there were any that would understand, and seek after God.
4 But they are all gone out of the way, they are altogether become abominable : there is also none that doeth good, no not one.
5 Are not they without understanding, that work wickedness : eating up my people as if they would eat bread? they have not called upon God.
6 They were afraid where no fear was : for God hath broken the bones of him that besieged thee; thou hast put them to confusion, because God hath despised them.
7 O that the salvation were given unto Israel out of Sion : O that the Lord would deliver his people out of captivity!
8 Then should Jacob rejoice : and Israel should be right glad.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son : and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be : world without end. Amen.
