Psalm 14                                                                                                    Tuesday Midday 1

The fool thinks in his heart * “God is not present.”

They are corrupt and do terrible things; * no one does good.

    Yahweh looks down from heaven * on all mankind,

    to see if any are wise, * if any seek God.

        But they all are stubborn, * and are equally bad.

        No one does good, * not a single one.

        Don't all evildoers know * that those who rob his people

        are eating Yahweh's grain, * which they did not harvest.

    See how they formed a gang, * but God is in the assembly of the just.

    The council of the poor put the wicked to shame, * for Yahweh is their refuge.

O that from Zion * would Israel’s salvation come!

When Yahweh restores * his people's fortune,

let Jacob rejoice * and Israel be glad.
