Psalms 14:1-7

To the director. Of David. 14  The senseless one has said in his heart: “There is no Jehovah.”*+ They have acted ruinously,+ they have acted detestably in [their] dealing. There is no one doing good.*+   As for Jehovah, he has looked down from heaven itself upon the sons of men,+ To see whether there exists anyone having insight, anyone seeking Jehovah.*+   They have all turned aside,+ they are [all] alike corrupt;+ There is no one doing good,+ Not even one.*+   Have none of the practicers of what is hurtful got knowledge,+ Eating up my people as they have eaten bread?+ They have not called even upon Jehovah.+   There they were filled with a great dread,*+ For Jehovah* is among the generation of the righteous one.+   The counsel of the afflicted one YOU people would put to shame, Because Jehovah is his refuge.+   O that out of Zion there were the salvation of Israel!+ When Jehovah gathers back the captive ones of his people,+ Let Jacob be joyful, let Israel rejoice.+

There is no fear of God before their eyes.”
