Dixit insipiens.

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 be- | -come 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 despis-ed 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.
