The Human Condition

The Lord looks down from heaven
    on all mankind
to see if there are any who understand,
    any who seek God.
All have turned away, all have become corrupt;
    there is no one who does good,
    not even one.

                                                Psalm 14:2,3

We all, like sheep, have gone astray,
    each of us has turned to our own way
                                             Isaiah 53:6

The heart is deceitful above all things
    and beyond cure.
                                             Jeremiah 17:9

These people come near to me with their
    mouth and honor me with their lips,
    but their hearts are far from me.
                                             Isaiah 29:13
