Psalms 14

1

TO THE CHOIRMASTER. OF DAVID. The fool says in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds, there is none who does good.

2

The LORD looks down from heaven on the children of man, to see if there are any who understand, who seek after God.

3

They have all turned aside; together they have become corrupt; there is none who does good, not even one.

4

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

5

There they are in great terror, for God is with the generation of the righteous.

6

You would shame the plans of the poor, but the LORD is his refuge.

7

Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion! When the LORD restores the fortunes of his people, let Jacob rejoice, let Israel be glad.
