Psalm 14

Psalm 14

For the director of music. Of David.

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

The Lord looks down from heaven
    on all mankind
to see if there are any who understand,
    any who seek God.
All have 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 the Lord.
But there they are, overwhelmed with dread,
    for God is present in the company of the righteous.
You evildoers frustrate the plans of the poor,
    but the Lord is their refuge.

Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion!
    When the Lord restores his people,
    let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad!

诗篇 14

世人的邪恶

大卫的诗,交给乐长。

1愚昧人心里想:“没有上帝。”
他们全然败坏,行为邪恶,
无人行善。
耶和华从天上俯视人间,
看有没有明智者,
有没有寻求上帝的人。
人们都偏离正路,
一同堕落;
没有人行善,
一个也没有!
恶人吞吃我的百姓如同吃饭,
他们不求告耶和华。
难道他们无知吗?
但他们终必充满恐惧,
因为上帝站在义人当中。
你们恶人使困苦人的计划落空,
但耶和华是他们的避难所。
愿以色列的拯救来自锡安!
耶和华救回祂被掳的子民时,
雅各要欢欣,以色列要快乐。
