Psalms 14

Folly and Wickedness of Men.

For the choir director. A Psalm of David.

The fool has a said in his heart, “There is no God.”
They are corrupt, they have committed abominable
Lit doings
There is c no one who does good.
The  Lord has d looked down from heaven upon the sons of men
To see if there are any who
Or act wisely
f understand,
Who g seek after God.
They have all h turned aside, together they have become corrupt;
There is i no one who does good, not even one.

Do all the workers of wickedness j not know,
Who k eat up my people as they eat bread,
And l do not call upon the Lord?
There they are in great dread,
For God is with the m righteous generation.
You would put to shame the counsel of the afflicted,
But the  Lord is his n refuge.

Oh, that o the salvation of Israel
Lit would be
would come out of Zion!
When the  Lord
Or restores the fortunes of His people
r restores His captive people,
Jacob will rejoice, Israel will be glad.
