New International Reader's Version

Psalm 14

Psalm 14

For the director of music. A psalm 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.

The Lord 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.

Do all these people who do evil know nothing?
    They eat up my people as if they were eating bread.
    They never call out to the Lord.
But just look at them! They are filled with terror
    because God is among those who do right.
You who do evil keep poor people from succeeding.
    But the Lord is their place of safety.

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

詩篇 14

世人的邪惡

大衛的詩,交給樂長。

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。
耶和華從天上俯視人間,
看有沒有明智者,
有沒有尋求上帝的人。
人們都偏離正路,
一同墮落;
沒有人行善,
一個也沒有!
惡人吞吃我的百姓如同吃飯,
他們不求告耶和華。
難道他們無知嗎?
但他們終必充滿恐懼,
因為上帝站在義人當中。
你們惡人使困苦人的計劃落空,
但耶和華是他們的避難所。
願以色列的拯救來自錫安!
耶和華救回祂被擄的子民時,
雅各要歡欣,以色列要快樂。
