Psalm 14

Denunciation of Godlessness

To the leader. Of David.

1

Fools say in their hearts, “There is no God.”

They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds;

there is no one who does good.

 

2

The Lord looks down from heaven on humankind

to see if there are any who are wise,

who seek after God.

 

3

They have all gone astray, they are all alike perverse;

there is no one who does good,

no, not one.

 

4

Have they no knowledge, all the evildoers

who eat up my people as they eat bread,

and do not call upon the Lord?

 

5

There they shall be in great terror,

for God is with the company of the righteous.

6

You would confound the plans of the poor,

but the Lord is their refuge.

 

7

O that deliverance for Israel would come from Zion!

When the Lord restores the fortunes of his people,

Jacob will rejoice; Israel will be glad.
