The Fool Says There Is No God
(Psalm 14:1–7; Isaiah 59:1–17; Romans 3:9–20)

1Unto the end. For Mahalath: the thoughts of David. The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.” They were corrupted, and they became abominable with iniquities. There is no one who does good.

2God gazed down from heaven on the sons of men, to see if there were any who were considering or seeking God.

3All have gone astray; together they have become useless. There is no one who does good; there is not even one.

4Will they never learn: all those who work iniquity, who devour my people like a meal of bread?

5They have not called upon God. In that place, they have trembled in fear, where there was no fear. For God has scattered the bones of those who please men. They have been confounded, because God has spurned them.

6Who will grant from Zion the salvation of Israel? Jacob will exult, when God will convert the captivity of his people; and Israel will rejoice.
