THE *BOOK OF
Psalm 14 ©
David describes the extreme corruption and malice of his enemies in particular and of all natural men in general, reproves and threatens them; longs for God’s salvation, especially by the Messiah, whereof he rejoices in the spirit.
To the 1chief Musician, A Psalm of David.
2THEa3fool hath 4said in his heart, There is no God. They 5are corrupt, 6they have done abominable works, thereb is none that doeth good.
The LORD 7looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and 8seek God.
9They are all gone aside, they are all together become 10filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
11Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my 12people as they eat bread, and 13call not upon the LORD.
14There were they in great fear: for God is 15in the generation of the righteous.
Ye have 16shamed the counsel of the poor, because the LORD is his refuge.
17Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! when the LORD bringeth back the 18captivity of his people, 19Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.
