Psalm 14

                                                  For the director of music. of David.

1 The fool says in his heart,

“There is no God.”

They are corrupt, their deeds are vile;

there is no one who does good.

2 The Lord looks down from heaven

on the sons of men

to see if there are any who understand,

any who seek God.

3 All have turned aside,

they have together become corrupt;

there is no one who does good,

not even one.

4 will evildoers never learn—-

those who devour my people as men eat

bread

and who do not call on the Lord?

5 There they are, overwhelmed with dread,

for God is present in the company of the

righteous.

6 You evildoers frustrate the plans of the poor,

but the Lord is their refuge.

7 Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of

Zion!

When the Lord restores the fortunes of his

people,

let Jacob and Israel be glad!
