Wesley's Notes for Psalms 14:4


14:4 Bread - With as little remorse, and with as much greediness. Call not - They are guilty not only of gross injustice towards men, but also of horrid impiety and contempt of God.


Discussion for Psalms 14

    The fact that there is "none that doeth good, no, not one." proves that the only ones who do good and are saved are those who believe in Jesus. Cause since all of us are evil sinners undeserving of eternal life (Romans 3:23) then that means the only way to be saved is to have your sins forgiven and righteous imputed upon you by faith and the only way that could happen is by believing in Jesus.

    PSALM 14:4 HAVE ALL THE WORKERS OF INIQUITY NO KNOWLEDGE WHO EAT UP MY PEOPLE AS THEY EAT BREAD AND CALL NOT UPON THE LORD *** PROVERBS 2:6 FOR THE LORD GIVETH WISDOM OUT OF --HIS MOUTH--COMETH KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING *** PROVERBS 14:7 GO FROM THE PRESENCE OF A FOOLISH MAN WHEN THOU PERCEIVEST NOT IN HIM THE LIPS OF KNOWLEDGE

    Any person/sinner is changed from fool to fellowship with God, only by his grace. We don't find God, he is the potter, we are the clay. It is nonsense/ignorance to believe, or suggest, he owes us anything, due to anything, from within us. We love him because he first loved us.1John4:19. Sovereign, Almighty, Savior, Love, is he alone.

    Verse 1: God views those who do not believe in him as fools. Such ones can become corrupt and have detestable actions.
  • A disciple
    "Oh that THE SALVATION OF ISRAEL were come out of Zion! when I AM brings back the captivity of HIS PEOPLE, JACOB shall rejoice, and ISRAEL shall be glad." As the heathen beat their plowshares into swords, and beat more fiercely the drums of war; The God of Israel, the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, is working all these things for the salvation of His People Israel, and for all grafted in by faith.
  • A disciple
    "I AM looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, seek God." Some may say that the Lord knows their hearts, when they are reproved for sin and bad behavior. Yet when it comes to the very root of their moral choices and character they play ignorant. God KNOWS that we understand the truth and His commandments: our duty is to truth in the inner man.
