Psalm 14 Summary
In Psalm 14:1, David call those who do not believe in God’s existence a fool because they are blind to spiritual matters. Because they think there is no God, they felt it is okay to do things that are against the moral. Everyone is a sinner. Despite that, you can see a moral difference between the believers and non believers.
In Psalm 14:2-3, God does not see anyone good on this earth. Everyone is wicked in some ways.
In Psalm 14:4-6, David described that evil doers like to abuse people of lower status and eat them up, like they are eating bread. But God is always watching the people on this earth including the good and wicked and he will reward and punish them accordingly.
In Psalm 14:7, David expressed his longing for God to send the messiah, Jesus Christ, to come to the earth and save the people. David look forward to the deliverance of Israel.
Psalm 14 Bible Study
1. Everyone is a sinner
Everyone is a sinner because we are the forward generation of Adam and Eve. Adam and Eve sinned by disobeying God and eating from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. From that time onward, the seed of sin is passed on mankind. Jesus Christ came to the earth and die for our sins so that if we believe in him and repent and faithfully follow him, we can receive eternal life and enter into the kingdom of God. We are sinners no matter if we have done anything wrong in our lifetime. In 1 John 1:9, God is faithful and just. He will purify your unrighteousness if you confess your sins and repent sincerely to God. In Ephesians 2:8-9, for by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.
