Psalm 14

14
The Fool Says, There Is No God
To the choirmaster. Of David.
1 # For ver. 1-7, see Ps. 53:1-6 The #Ps. 74:18, 22; Job 2:10 fool says in his heart, #Ps. 10:4 “There is no God.”
They are #Gen. 6:5, 11, 12 corrupt, they do abominable deeds;
# Cited Rom. 3:10-12 there is none who does good.
2The Lord #Ps. 102:19; [Ps. 11:4] looks down from heaven on the children of man,
to see if there are any who understand,#14:2 Or that act wisely
who #2 Chr. 15:2; 19:3seek after God.
3They have all turned aside; together they have become #Job 15:16corrupt;
there is none who does good,
not even one.
4Have they no #Ps. 82:5; [Isa. 1:3; Jer. 4:22] knowledge, all the evildoers
who #Prov. 30:14; Jer. 10:25; Hos. 7:7; [Ps. 27:2; Amos 8:4; Mic. 3:3] eat up my people as they eat bread
and #Ps. 79:6; Jer. 10:25; Hos. 7:7; [Isa. 64:7]do not call upon the Lord?
5There they are in great terror,
for God is with #Ps. 24:6; 73:15the generation of the righteous.
6You would shame the plans of the poor,
but#14:6 Or for the Lord is his #Ps. 46:1; 61:3; 62:7, 8; 91:2; 142:5refuge.
7Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion!
When the Lord #Ps. 85:1; 126:1; Job 42:10; Jer. 30:18; Ezek. 16:53; 39:25; Hos. 6:11; Joel 3:1restores the fortunes of his people,
let Jacob rejoice, let Israel be glad.
