Psalm 14

Words: The Scottish Psalter

C. M.

To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.

 1  That there is not a God, the fool
       doth in his heart conclude:
    They are corrupt, their works are vile;
       not one of them doth good.

 2  Upon men's sons the Lord from heav'n
       did cast his eyes abroad,
    To see if any understood,
       and did seek after God.

 3  They altogether filthy are,
       they all aside are gone;
    And there is none that doeth good,
       yea, sure there is not one.

 4  These workers of iniquity
       do they not know at all,
    That they my people eat as bread,
       and on God do not call?

 5  There feared they much; for God is with
       the whole race of the just.
 6  You shame the counsel of the poor,
       because God is his trust.

 7  Let Isr'el's help from Zion come:
       when back the Lord shall bring
    His captives, Jacob shall rejoice,
       and Israel shall sing.
