Psalm 14 is the 14th psalm from the Book of Psalms. Attributed to David, it is a prophetical reference to the destruction of the First Temple.[1] Along with Psalm 53, it is quoted in the Epistle to the Romans, where Paul the Apostle uses verses of it to discuss original sin. Herman Gunkel dates the psalm to the exile period.[2]
