Psalms 14

The Fool Says, There Is No God

To the choirmaster. Of David.

1 aThe bfool says in his heart, c“There is no God.”
They are dcorrupt, they do abominable deeds;
ethere is none who does good.
2 The Lord flooks down from heaven on the children of man,
to see if there are any who understand,
Or that act wisely

who hseek after God.
3 They have all turned aside; together they have become icorrupt;
there is none who does good,
not even one.
4 Have they no jknowledge, all the evildoers
who keat up my people as they eat bread
and ldo not call upon the Lord?
5 There they are in great terror,
for God is with mthe generation of the righteous.
6You would shame the plans of the poor,
Or for
the Lord is his orefuge.
7 Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion!
When the Lord prestores the fortunes of his people,
let Jacob rejoice, let Israel be glad.
