Psalms 14


Psalm 14


The Fool Says, There Is No God

To the choirmaster. Of David.

[1] The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.”
They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds;
there is none who does good.


[2] The LORD looks down from heaven on the children of man,
to see if there are any who understand,
who seek after God.


[3] They have all turned aside; together they have become corrupt;
there is none who does good,
not even 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 are in great terror,
for God is with the generation of the righteous.
[6] You would shame the plans of the poor,
but the LORD is his refuge.


[7] Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion!
When the LORD restores the fortunes of his people,
let Jacob rejoice, let Israel be glad. (ESV)
