Yahweh looks for the wise ones (Ps 14:2-14:2)

“Yahweh looks down from heaven

On humankind.

He wants to see

If there are any who are wise,

Those who seek after God.”

Yahweh is perched in heaven looking down at all the humans. He wants to see if there are any wise ones who seek God on earth. The concept of wise is the one who seeks God. It was common to believe that God was up there somewhere.
