Psalm 53

Psalm 53[a]

For the director of music. According to mahalath.[b] A maskil[c] of David.

The fool says in his heart,
    “There is no God.”
They are corrupt, and their ways are vile;
    there is no one who does good.

God looks down from heaven
    on all mankind
to see if there are any who understand,
    any who seek God.
Everyone has turned away, all have become corrupt;
    there is no one who does good,
    not even one.

Do all these evildoers know nothing?

They devour my people as though eating bread;
    they never call on God.
But there they are, overwhelmed with dread,
    where there was nothing to dread.
God scattered the bones of those who attacked you;
    you put them to shame, for God despised them.

Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion!
    When God restores his people,
    let Jacob rejoice and Israel 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。
