  • Psalm 14

    Psalm 14

    For the music leader. Of David.

    14 Fools say in their hearts, There is no God.
        They are corrupt and do evil things;
        not one of them does anything good.

    The Lord looks down from heaven on humans
        to see if anyone is wise,
        to see if anyone seeks God,
            but all of them have turned bad.
            Everyone is corrupt.
            No one does good—
            not even one person!

    Are they dumb, all these evildoers,
        devouring my people
        like they are eating bread
            but never calling on the Lord?

    Count on it: they will be in utter panic
        because God is with the righteous generation.
    You evildoers may humiliate
        the plans of those who suffer,
            but the Lord is their refuge.

    Let Israel’s salvation come out of Zion!
            When the Lord changes
            his people’s circumstances for the better,
            Jacob will rejoice;
            Israel will celebrate!
