Yahweh will restore Israel (Ps 14:7-14:7)

“O that deliverance for Israel

Would come out of Zion!

When Yahweh restores

The fortunes of his people,

Jacob shall rejoice.

Israel shall be glad.”

There is here a hint of the captivity, rather than the time of David when Israel was still in one country. Here there is a restoration. There is a need for deliverance that would come from Zion. Jacob or Israel would rejoice again. Israel would be glad. The evildoers would be gone. So we have this happy ending to this short psalm.
