The Fool Speaks in His Heart

  1. The fool speaks in his heart;
    “There is no God,” he says.
    They are corrupt, their deeds are vile;
    none walk in godly ways.
  2. The LORD looks down from heav’n
    upon the human race,
    to see if any understand,
    if any seek God’s face.
  3. They all have turned aside;
    corrupt they have become.
    Not one of them does any good—
    no, not a single one.
  4. Will sinners never learn?
    My people they devour
    as if they were consuming bread;
    they never seek the LORD.
  5. With dread they are struck down,
    for God is with the just.
    You evildoers shame the poor,
    who make the LORD their trust.
  6. May help from Zion come,
    the LORD his captives bring!
    And Jacob’s tribes will then rejoice,
    and Isr’el gladly sing.
