Psalms 14

The Fool Says, There Is No God

To the choirmaster. Of David.

1 a  The b  fool says in his heart, c  “There is no God.”
They are d  corrupt, they do abominable deeds,
e  there is none who does good.
2 The  Lord f  looks down from heaven on the children of man,
to see if there are any who understand,
Or that act wisely

who h  seek after God.
3 They have all turned aside; together they have become i  corrupt;
there is none who does good,
not even one.
4 Have they no j  knowledge, all the evildoers
who k  eat up my people as they eat bread
and l  do not call upon the  Lord?
5 There they are in great terror,
for God is with m  the generation of the righteous.
6You would shame the plans of the poor,
Or for
the  Lord is his o  refuge.
7 Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion!
When the  Lord p  restores the fortunes of his people,
let Jacob rejoice, let Israel be glad.
