Psalms 14

1 The fool has said in his heart, "There is no God."  They are corrupt.  They have done abominable works.  There is none who does good.

2 Yahweh looked down from heaven on the children of men,  To see if there were any who did understand,  Who did seek after God.

3 They have all gone aside.  They have together become corrupt.  There is none who does good, no, not one.

4 Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge,  Who eat up my people as they eat bread,  And don't call on Yahweh?

5 There they were in great fear,  For God is in the generation of the righteous.

6 You frustrate the plan of the poor,  Because Yahweh is his refuge.

7 Oh that the salvation of Israel would come out of Zion!  When Yahweh restores the fortunes of his people,  Then Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.  A Psalm by David.
