Context
The Fool Says, There is No God

1The fool has said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that does good. 2The LORD looked down from heaven on the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. 3They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that does good, no, not one. 4Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not on the LORD. 5There were they in great fear: for God is in the generation of the righteous. 6You have shamed the counsel of the poor, because the LORD is his refuge. 7Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! when the LORD brings back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.
