Psalms 14

To the Chief Musician. David’s.

The impious hath said in his heart—There is no God! They have acted corruptly, they have done an abominable deed, there is none that doeth good. Yahweh, out of the heavens, looked down over the sons of men,—to see whether there was one that showed wisdom, enquiring after God:— The whole, have turned aside, Together have they become tainted,—There is none that doeth good, not so much as, one!

Are all the workers of iniquity, without knowledge? devouring my people [as] they devour food! Upon Yahweh, have they not called. There have they been in great dread, because, God, is in the circle of the righteous man. The purpose of the poor, ye would put to shame, because, Yahweh, is his refuge. Oh that, out of Zion, were granted the salvation of Israel! When Yahweh bringeth back the captives of his people, Jacob, shall exult, Israel, be glad.
