Psalms 14
The Unbelieving Fool
For the director of music. Of David.
1A wicked fool says to himself,
“There is no God.”
Fools are evil. They do terrible things.
None of them does anything good.
2The Lord looked down from heaven at all the people.
He looked to see if anyone was wise,
if anyone was looking to God for help.
3But all have turned away.
Together, everyone has become evil.
None of them does anything good.
4Don’t the wicked understand?
They destroy my people as if they were eating bread.
They do not ask the Lord for help.
5But the wicked are filled with terror
because God is with those who do what is right.
6The wicked upset the plans of the poor.
But the Lord will protect the poor.
7I pray that victory will come to Israel from Mount Zion!
May the Lord give them back their riches.
Then the people of Jacob will rejoice.
And the people of Israel will be glad.
