chief Musician, A Psalm of David.
1 The fool
hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are
corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is
none that doeth good.
2 The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children
of men, to see if there were any that did
understand, and seek God.
3 They are all gone aside, they are all together
become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no,
4 Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who
eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not
upon the Lord.
5 There were they in great fear: for God is in the
generation of the righteous.
6 Ye have shamed the counsel of the poor, because
the Lord is his refuge.
7 Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of
Zion! when the Lord bringeth back the captivity of
his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be

- The Book of David
The Book of Psalms which contains Psalm 14 is also referred to
as the Book of David. David reigned over Judah and Israel
was the second king of the united Kingdom of Israel. King
David is credited with the authorship of many of the Psalms
and the collection is therefore often referred to as the
Book of David.
