King James Version

Psalm 53

1The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good.

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

Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become filthy; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread: they have not called upon God.

There were they in great fear, where no fear was: for God hath scattered the bones of him that encampeth against thee: thou hast put them to shame, because God hath despised them.

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

詩篇 53

人的邪惡

大衛作的訓誨詩,交給樂長,調用「麻哈拉」。

1愚昧人心裡想:
「沒有上帝。」
他們全然敗壞,行為邪惡,
無人行善。
上帝從天上俯視人間,
要看世上有沒有明智者,
有沒有尋求祂的人。
人們都背棄祂,
都敗壞不堪,無人行善,
連一個都沒有!
惡人吞吃我的百姓如同吃飯,
他們不求告上帝。
難道他們無知嗎?
因此,他們必陷入空前的驚恐。
上帝必使攻擊你的仇敵粉身碎骨,
你必使他們蒙羞受辱,
因為上帝棄絕了他們。
願以色列的拯救來自錫安。
上帝救回祂被擄的子民時,
雅各要歡喜,以色列要快樂。
