Psalm 14 - The Fool Says, There Is No God

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.
