1  For the leader; on mahalath. A maskil of David.

א  לַמְנַצֵּחַ עַל־מָחֲלַת מַשְׂכִּיל לְדָוִד׃

2  The benighted man thinks, “Hashem does not care.” Man’s wrongdoing is corrupt and loathsome; no one does good.

ב  אָמַר נָבָל בְּלִבּוֹ אֵין אֱלֹהִים הִשְׁחִיתוּ וְהִתְעִיבוּ עָוֶל אֵין עֹשֵׂה־טוֹב׃

3  Hashem looks down from heaven on mankind to find a man of understanding, a man mindful of Hashem.

ג  אֱ‍לֹהִים מִשָּׁמַיִם הִשְׁקִיף עַל־בְּנֵי אָדָם לִרְאוֹת הֲיֵשׁ מַשְׂכִּיל דֹּרֵשׁ אֶת־אֱלֹהִים׃

4  Everyone is dross, altogether foul; there is none who does good, not even one.

ד  כֻּלּוֹ סָג יַחְדָּו נֶאֱלָחוּ אֵין עֹשֵׂה־טוֹב אֵין גַּם־אֶחָד׃

5  Are they so witless, those evildoers, who devour my people as they devour food, and do not invoke Hashem?

ה  הֲלֹא יָדְעוּ פֹּעֲלֵי אָוֶן אֹכְלֵי עַמִּי אָכְלוּ לֶחֶם אֱלֹהִים לֹא קָרָאוּ׃

6  There they will be seized with fright —never was there such a fright— for Hashem has scattered the bones of your besiegers; you have put them to shame, for Hashem has rejected them.

ו  שָׁם פָּחֲדוּ־פַחַד לֹא־הָיָה פָחַד כִּי־אֱלֹהִים פִּזַּר עַצְמוֹת חֹנָךְ הֱבִשֹׁתָה כִּי־אֱלֹהִים מְאָסָם׃

7  O that the deliverance of Yisrael might come from Tzion! When Hashem restores the fortunes of His people, Yaakov will exult, Yisrael will rejoice.

MEE yi-TAYN mi-tzi-YON y’-shu-OT yis-ra-AYL b’-SHUV e-lo-HEEM sh’-VUT a-MO ya-GAYL ya-a-KOV yis-MAKH yis-ra-AYL

ז  מִי יִתֵּן מִצִּיּוֹן יְשֻׁעוֹת יִשְׂרָאֵל בְּשׁוּב אֱלֹהִים שְׁבוּת עַמּוֹ יָגֵל יַעֲקֹב יִשְׂמַח יִשְׂרָאֵל׃
