Psalm 14. Dixit insipiens.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - The Second Day - Evening Prayer.
  1. THE fool hath said in his heart, *
    There is no God.
  2. They are corrupt, and become abominable in their doings; *
    there is none that doeth good, no not one.
  3. The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, *
    to see if there were any that would understand, and seek after God.
  4. But they are all gone out of the way, they are altogether become abominable; *
    there is none that doeth good, no not one.
  5. Have they no knowledge, that they are all such workers of mischief, *
    eating up my people as it were bread, and call not upon the Lord?
  6. There were they brought in great fear, even where no fear was; *
    for God is in the generation of the righteous.
  7. As for you, ye have made a mock at the counsel of the poor; *
    because he putteth his trust in the Lord.
  8. Who shall give salvation unto Israel out of Sion? *
    When the Lord turneth the captivity of his people, then shall Jacob rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.
