Psalms

Chapter 14

1 For the Leader. A Psalm of David. The fool hath said in his heart: 'There is no G-d'; they have dealt corruptly, they have done abominably; there is none that doeth good.
2 HaShem looked forth from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any man of understanding, that did seek after G-d.
3 They are all corrupt, they are together become impure; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
4 'Shall not all the workers of iniquity know it, who eat up My people as they eat bread, and call not upon HaShem?'
5 There are they in great fear; for G-d is with the righteous generation.
6 Ye would put to shame the counsel of the poor, but HaShem is his refuge.
7 Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! When HaShem turneth the captivity of His people, let Jacob rejoice, let Israel be glad.
