Mission of St. Clare logo Psalm 14 Dixit insipiens

The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God.

They are corrupt, and become abominable in their doings;
there is none that doeth good, no not one.

The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that would understand, and seek after God.

But they are all gone out of the way, they are altogether become abominable;
there is none that doeth good, no not one.

Their throat is an open sepulchre.

With their tongues have they deceived;
the poison of asps is under their lips.

Their mouth is full of cursing and bitterness;
their feet are swift to shed blood.

Destruction and unhappiness is in their ways, and the way of peace have they not known;
there is no fear of God before their eyes.

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? There were they brought in great fear, even where no fear was;
for God is in the generation of the righteous.

As for you, ye have made a mock at the counsel of the poor, because he putteth his trust in the Lord.

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.
