Psalm 14

There Is No One Who Does Good

For the choir director. Of David.

The wicked fool says in his heart, “There is no God.”
They act corruptly, they commit abominable deeds;
There is no one who does good.
Yahweh looks down from heaven upon the sons of men
To see if there is anyone who has insight,
Anyone who seeks after God.
They have all turned aside, altogether they have become worthless;
There is no one who does good, not even one.

Do all the workers of iniquity not know,
Who eat up my people as they eat bread,
And do not call upon Yahweh?
There they are in great dread,
For God is with the righteous generation.
You would put to shame the counsel of the afflicted,
But Yahweh is his refuge.

Oh, that the salvation of Israel would come out of Zion!
When Yahweh restores His captive people,
May Jacob rejoice, may Israel be glad.
