Psalms 14

Folly and Wickedness of Men.

For the choir director. A Psalm of David.

1 The fool has a  said in his heart, “There is no God.”
They are corrupt, they have committed abominable
Lit doings
deeds;
There is c  no one who does good.
2The  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.
3They have all h  turned aside, together they have become corrupt;
There is i  no one who does good, not even one.

4Do 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?
5There they are in great dread,
For God is with the m  righteous generation.
6You would put to shame the counsel of the afflicted,
But the  Lord is his n  refuge.

7Oh, 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.
