World English Bible
You frustrate the plan of the poor, because Yahweh is his refuge.
Young's Literal Translation
The counsel of the poor ye cause to stink, Because Jehovah is his refuge.
Psalm 14:6 Parallel

Ye have shamed the counsel of the poor - Instead of תבישו tabishu, "Ye have shamed," Bishop Horsley proposes to read תבישם tabishem, and translates the clause thus: "The counsel of the helpless man shall put them to shame."

The poor people took counsel together to expect help from God and to wait patiently for it; and this counsel ye derided, because ye did not know - did not consider, that God was in the congregation of the righteous.
