Psalm 14


The Fool Says, There Is No God



 TO THE CHOIRMASTER. OF DAVID. 


      1 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.
