Psalm 14

    Psalm 14

    David says, The fool has said in his heart, there is no God—Israel will rejoice in the day of restoration.

    To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.

    1 aThe bfool hath said in his heart, There is cno dGod. They are ecorrupt, they have done abominable works, there is fnone that doeth good.

    2 The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God.

    3 They are all gone aside, they are all together become afilthy: there is bnone that doeth good, no, not one.

    4 Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon the Lord.

    5 There were they in great fear: for God is in the generation of the righteous.

    6 Ye have ashamed the counsel of the poor, because the Lord is his refuge.

    7 Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! when the Lord bringeth back the acaptivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.
