Psalm 14

For the Chief Musician. By David. 1The fool has said in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt. They have done abominable works. There is none who does good. 2TheIAM looked down from heaven on the children of men, to see if there were any who did understand, who did seek after God. 3They have all gone aside. They have together become corrupt. There is none who does good, no, not one. 4Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge, who eat up my people as they eat bread, and don't call on TheIAM? 5There they were in great fear, for God is in the generation of the righteous. 6You frustrate the plan of the poor, because TheIAM is his refuge. 7Oh that the salvation of Israel would come out of Zion! When TheIAM restores the fortunes of his people, then Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.
