1 To the choirmaster. Of David.
2 The fool says in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds, there is none that does good.
3 The LORD looks down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there are any that act wisely, that seek after God.
4 They have all gone astray, they are all alike corrupt; there is none that does good, no, not one.
5 Have they no knowledge, all the evildoers who eat up my people as they eat bread, and do not call upon the LORD?
6 There they shall be in great terror, for God is with the generation of the righteous.
7 You would confound the plans of the poor, but the LORD is his refuge. [ (Psalms 14:8) O that deliverance for Israel would come out of Zion! When the LORD restores the fortunes of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, Israel shall be glad. ]
