Psalm 14:1-7

To the director. Of David. 14  The foolish* one says in his heart: “There is no Jehovah.”+ Their actions are corrupt, and their dealings are detestable;No one is doing good.+   But Jehovah looks down from heaven on the sons of menTo see whether anyone has insight, whether anyone is seeking Jehovah.+   They have all turned aside;+They are all alike corrupt. No one is doing good,Not even one.   Do none of the wrongdoers understand? They devour my people as if they were eating bread. They do not call on Jehovah.   But they will be filled with great terror,+For Jehovah is with the generation of the righteous.   You wrongdoers try to frustrate the plans of the lowly one,But Jehovah is his refuge.+   O that Israel’s salvation may come from Zion!+ When Jehovah gathers back his captive people,Let Jacob be joyful, let Israel rejoice.
