People: They have all gone astray, they are all alike perverse; there is none that does good, no, not one.

Leader: Have they no knowledge, the evildoers who eat up my people as they eat bread, and do not call upon the Lord?

People: There they shall be in great terror, for God is with the generation of the righteous.
