Salme 14

Menneskets ondskab

1Til korlederen: En sang af David.

Tåberne mener, at Gud ikke findes.
    De er fordærvede i tanke og handling.
Ingen gør det gode,
    ikke én eneste.
Fra himlen ser Herren på menneskene:
Er der nogen, der er forstandige?
    Er der nogen, der søger Gud?
Nej, alle er kommet på afveje, fordærvede af synd.
    Ingen gør det gode, ikke én eneste.
„Fatter de da intet?” siger Herren.
„De forsynder sig uden at blinke,
    og de regner slet ikke med mig.”
En dag skal de fyldes af rædsel,
    for Gud er med dem, der adlyder ham.
Onde mennesker undertrykker de svage,
    men Herren er deres beskytter.
Gid Herren ville sende sin frelse fra Zion
    og redde Israels folk.
Når Herren griber ind og genrejser sit folk,
    så bliver der jubel og glæde i Israel.

King James Version

Psalm 14

1The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.

The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God.

They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon the Lord.

There were they in great fear: for God is in the generation of the righteous.

Ye have shamed the counsel of the poor, because the Lord is his refuge.

Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! when the Lord bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.
