Psalms 14

The Fool Says There is No God

For the choirmaster. Of David. The fool
The Hebrew words rendered fool throughout the Psalms denote one who is morally deficient
says in his heart, “ [There is] no God.” They are corrupt; their acts are vile. There is no one who does good.
The LORD looks down from heaven upon the sons of men to see if any understand, if any seek God. All have turned away, they have together become corrupt;
LXX worthless
there is no one who does good, not even one.
Will the workers of iniquity never learn? They devour my people [like] bread; they refuse to call upon the LORD. There they are, overwhelmed with dread, for God [is] in the company of the righteous. You [sinners] frustrate the plans of the oppressed, yet the LORD is their shelter. Oh, that the salvation of Israel would come from Zion! When the LORD restores His captive people, let Jacob rejoice, let Israel be glad.
