Psalm 14

For the music leader. Of David.

1 Fools say in their hearts, There is no God. They are corrupt and do evil things; not one of them does anything good.
2 The LORD looks down from heaven on humans to see if anyone is wise, to see if anyone seeks God,
3 but all of them have turned bad. Everyone is corrupt. No one does good— not even one person!
4 Are they dumb, all these evildoers, devouring my people like they are eating bread but never calling on the LORD?
5 Count on it: they will be in utter panic because God is with the righteous generation.
6 You evildoers may humiliate the plans of those who suffer, but the LORD is their refuge.
7 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!
