Psalm 14 Revised Standard Version

The Folly and Wickedness of Men

14 1  To the choirmaster. Of David. The fool says in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds, there is none that does good. 2  The Lord looks down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there are any that act wisely, that seek after God. 3  They have all gone astray, they are all alike corrupt; there is none that does good, no, not 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 shall be in great terror, for God is with the generation of the righteous. 6  You would confound the plans of the poor, but the Lord is his refuge. 7  O that deliverance for Israel would come out of Zion! When the Lord restores the fortunes of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, Israel shall be glad.
