Salme 53

Menneskets ondskab

1Til korlederen: En visdomssang af David i mahalat-stil.[a]

Tåberne mener, at Gud ikke findes.
    De er fordærvede i tanke og handling.
Ingen gør det gode,
    ikke én eneste.
Fra himlen ser Gud på menneskene:
Er der nogen, der er forstandige?
    Er der nogen, der søger ham?
Nej, alle er faldet fra, forgiftede af synd.
    Ingen gør noget godt, ikke én eneste.
„Fatter de da intet?” siger Gud.
„De forsynder sig uden at blinke,
    og de regner slet ikke med mig.”
En dag skal de gribes af rædsel,
    fyldes af frygt som aldrig før.
Gud vil udrydde dem, der angriber hans folk.
    De bliver slået, fordi Gud har forkastet dem.
Gid Gud ville sende sin frelse fra Zion
    og redde Israels folk.
Når Gud griber ind og genrejser sit folk,
    da bliver der jubel og glæde i Israel.

New International Reader's Version

Psalm 53

Psalm 53

For the director of music. According to mahalath. A maskil of David.

Foolish people say in their hearts,
    “There is no God.”
They do all kinds of horrible and evil things.
    No one does anything good.

God looks down from heaven
    on all people.
He wants to see if there are any who understand.
    He wants to see if there are any who trust in God.
All of them have turned away.
    They have all become evil.
No one does anything good,
    no one at all.

Don’t these people who do evil know anything?
    They eat up my people as if they were eating bread.
    They never call out to God for help.
Just look at them! They are filled with terror
    even when there is nothing to be afraid of!
People of Israel, God scattered the bones of those who attacked you.
    You put them to shame, because God hated them.

How I pray that the God who saves Israel will come out of Zion!
    God will bless his people with great success again.
    Then let the people of Jacob be filled with joy! Let Israel be glad!
