Psalm 14. Dixit insipiens.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Contemporary - Second Day - Evening Prayer.
  1. The fool has said in his heart, "There is no God." *
    All are corrupt and commit abominable acts; there is none who does any good.
  2. The Lord looks down from heaven upon us all, *
    to see if there is any who is wise, if there is one who seeks after God.
  3. Every one has proved faithless; all alike have turned bad; *
    there is none who does good; no, not one.
  4. Have they no knowledge, all those evildoers *
    who eat up my people like bread and do not call upon the Lord?
  5. See how they tremble with fear, *
    because God is in the company of the righteous.
  6. Their aim is to confound the plans of the afflicted, *
    but the Lord is their refuge.
  7. Oh, that Israel's deliverance would come out of Zion! *
    when the Lord restores the fortunes of his people, Jacob will rejoice and Israel be glad.
