The first book of Psalms, song 14, New English Translation

Psalm 14

   For the music director; by David.
   1 Fools say to themselves, "There is no God." They sin and commit evil deeds; none of them does what is right.
   2 The LORD looks down from heaven at the human race, to see if there is anyone who is wise and seeks God.
   3 Everyone rejects God; they are all morally corrupt. None of them does what is right, not even one!
   4 All those who behave wickedly do not understand - those who devour my people as if they were eating bread, and do not call out to the LORD.
   5 They are absolutely terrified, for God defends the godly.
   6 You want to humiliate the oppressed, even though the LORD is their shelter.
   7 I wish the deliverance of Israel would come from Zion! When the LORD restores the well-being of his people, may Jacob rejoice, may Israel be happy!
