Amplified Bible

Psalm 53

Folly and Wickedness of Men.

To the Chief Musician; in a mournful strain. A skillful song, or didactic or reflective poem of David.

1The [empty-headed] fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.”
They are corrupt and evil, and have committed repulsive injustice;
There is no one who does good.

God has looked down from heaven upon the children of men
To see if there is anyone who understands,
Who seeks after God [who requires Him, who longs for Him as essential to life].

Every one of them has turned aside and fallen away;
Together they have become filthy and corrupt;
There is no one who does good, no, not even one.


Have workers of wickedness no knowledge or no understanding?
They eat up My people as though they ate bread
And have not called upon God.

There they were, in great terror and dread, where there had been no terror or dread;
For God scattered the bones of him who besieged you;
You have put them to shame, because God has rejected them.

Oh, that the salvation of Israel would come out of Zion!
When God restores [the fortunes of] His people,
Let Jacob rejoice, let Israel be glad.

诗篇 53

人的邪恶

大卫作的训诲诗,交给乐长,调用“麻哈拉”。

1愚昧人心里想:
“没有上帝。”
他们全然败坏,行为邪恶,
无人行善。
上帝从天上俯视人间,
要看世上有没有明智者,
有没有寻求祂的人。
人们都背弃祂,
都败坏不堪,无人行善,
连一个都没有!
恶人吞吃我的百姓如同吃饭,
他们不求告上帝。
难道他们无知吗?
因此,他们必陷入空前的惊恐。
上帝必使攻击你的仇敌粉身碎骨,
你必使他们蒙羞受辱,
因为上帝弃绝了他们。
愿以色列的拯救来自锡安。
上帝救回祂被掳的子民时,
雅各要欢喜,以色列要快乐。
