Wesley's Notes for Psalms 14:7


14:7 O that - These words immediately concern the deliverance of Israel out of that sinful state, in which they now were; which having described, he concludes, with a prayer to God to help them out of Zion, where the ark then was, but principally they design the spiritual redemption and salvation of all God's Israel by the Messiah. The captivity - His captive people. The children of Jacob, as Aaron is named for his sons, #1Chron 12:27|.


Discussion for Psalms 14

  • 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.
  • A disciple
    "The fool hath said in his heart . . No God! They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that does good." Notice that it doesn't say, The angry hostile hater . . but, The Fool! It is a moral behavior of willful stupidity. When the Lord called the scribes and Pharisees, Fools and blind; the word in the Greek literally means, Stupid, Moron; which is what men act out morally.

    Any,all,none means no exceptions. And from them, he gives refuge, to whom he pleases, to make them righteous. "The blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works"Romans4:6 "If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.John8:36" "For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost."Luke19:10
  • Irene123
    v. 1 - We need to pray, pray really and sincerely pray for the 'fools'. Pray with REAL compassion - which compassion ONLY the Holy Ghost dwelling in us can give; we cannot 'conjure' it up ourselves.
  • Adoniyah Yisrael
    This passage of Scripture isn't condemning the whole earth as if there wasn't anyone doing good or not understanding nor seeking God. It specifically identifies the non-compliant subjects as the fool being the children of men. There is a difference between the children of men and the sons of God See Genesis 6:1-2 4 . ALSO Psalms 82:6,7 I have said, Ye are gods and all of you are children of the Most High. But you shall die like men... In other words the sons of God now die just like men die. The only way to know the difference today is to observe who is eating up the people identified in verse 4 of Palms chapter 14. In Genesis 3:15 the Lord God put emnity between the seed of the woman and serpent. Therefore we have to observe the fruit or works to identify who is creating all the hell on earth and who is catching all this hell that is being created. Therein lie the truth. I speak strength and endurance unto all the children of the Most High the sons of God that they may endure to the end not being caught in the trap of materialism. Blessings unto all you who strive for the good of all! Amen.
