14:0 For the choir director, by David.
14:1 The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.”
They corrupt things, they commit abominable deeds;
There is not one who does good.
14:2 The LORD from heaven looks down upon the sons of man [human race]
to see if there are any who understand,
any who seek God.
14:3 They have all turned away, together they have become corrupt;
There is no one who does good, not even one.
14:4 Don’t all these evildoers know anything,
those who devour my people like they eat bread,
those who do not call upon the LORD?
14:5 There they are in great fear,
For God is with the righteous generation.
14:6 You would shame the plans of the afflicted,
though the LORD is his refuge.
14:7 Oh, that the salvation of Israel would come out of Zion!
when the LORD restores the fortunes of his people
let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad!
