Dixit insipiens.

The fool hath said | in his heart,

* There | is no God.

2 They are corrupt, and become abominable | in their doings;

* there is none that doeth | good, no not one.

3 The LORD 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 be- | -come abominable;

* there is none that doeth | good, no not one.

5 Have they no knowledge, that they are all such | workers• of mischief,

* eating up my people as it were bread, and | call •not up•on the LORD?

6 There were they brought in great fear, even where | no fear was;

* for God is in the gene- | -ration of the righteous.

7 As for you, ye have made a mock at the counsel | of the poor;

* because he putteth his | trust in the LORD.

8 Who shall give salvation unto Israel | out of Sion?

* When the LORD turneth the captivity of his people, then shall Jacob rejoice, and | Is•rael• shall be 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.
