Psalm 53. Dixit insipiens.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Contemporary - Tenth Day - Evening Prayer.
  1. The fool has said in his heart, "There is no God." *
    All are corrupt and commit abominable acts; there is none who does any good.
  2. God looks down from heaven upon us all, *
    to see if there is any who is wise, if there is one who seeks after God.
  3. Every one has proved faithless; all alike have turned bad; *
    there is none who does good; no, not one.
  4. Have they no knowledge, those evildoers *
    who eat up my people like bread and do not call upon God?
  5. See how greatly they tremble, such trembling as never was; *
    for God has scattered the bones of the enemy; they are put to shame because God has rejected them.
  6. Oh, that Israel's deliverance would come out of Zion! *
    when God restores the fortunes of his people Jacob will rejoice and Israel be glad.
* An asterisk divides a verse of a Psalm in two portions for responsive reading
