Psalm 14 (ESV)

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 Lordlooks 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 Lordis his refuge. 

7 Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion! When the Lordrestores the fortunes of his people, let Jacob rejoice, let Israel be glad.
