The Psalms

The Folly and Wickedness of Men
Ps. 14.1-7
To the chief Musician upon Ma'halath, Maschil, A Psalm of David.

1  The fool hath said in his heart,
There is no God.
Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity:
there is none that doeth good.
2  God looked down from heaven upon the children of men,
to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God.
3  Every one of them is gone back:
they are altogether become filthy;
there is none that doeth good, no, not one. Rom. 3.10-12
4  Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge?
who eat up my people as they eat bread:
they have not called upon God.
5  There were they in great fear, where no fear was:
for God hath scattered the bones of him that encampeth against thee:
thou hast put them to shame,
because God hath despised them.
6  Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion!
When God bringeth back the captivity of his people,
Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.
