Psalms - Chapter 14

1

For the director of music. Of David. The fool says in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good.


2

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


3

All have turned aside, they have together become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one.


4

Will evildoers never learn-- those who devour my people as men eat bread and who do not call on the LORD?


5

There they are, overwhelmed with dread, for God is present in the company of the righteous.


6

You evildoers frustrate the plans of the poor, but the LORD is their refuge.


7

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