Psalm 14

Psalm 14
For the choir director: A psalm of David.
1 Only fools say in their hearts,
  "There is no God."
They are corrupt, and their actions are evil;
  not one of them does good!

2 The LORD looks down from heaven
  on the entire human race;
he looks to see if anyone is truly wise,
  if anyone seeks God.
3 But no, all have turned away;
  all have become corrupt.*
No one does good,
  not a single one!

4 Will those who do evil never learn?
  They eat up my people like bread
  and wouldn't think of praying to the LORD.
5 Terror will grip them,
  for God is with those who obey him.
6 The wicked frustrate the plans of the oppressed,
  but the LORD will protect his people.

7 Who will come from Mount Zion to rescue Israel?
  When the LORD restores his people,
  Jacob will shout with joy, and Israel will rejoice.
