 Old Testament in Greek (Septuagint) ΨΑΛΜΟΙ: The Septuagint in English (Brenton)

1 Εἰς τὸ τέλος· ψαλμὸς τῷ Δαυιδ.

Εἶπεν ἄφρων ἐν καρδίᾳ αὐτοῦ Οὐκ ἔστιν θεός·
διέφθειραν καὶ ἐβδελύχθησαν ἐν ἐπιτηδεύμασιν,
οὐκ ἔστιν ποιῶν χρηστότητα, οὐκ ἔστιν ἕως ἑνός.

  For the end, Psalm of David.
The fool has said in his heart There is no God.
They have corrupted [themselves] and become abominable in their devices;
there is none that does goodness there is not even so much as one.
2 Κύριος ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ διέκυψεν ἐπὶ τοὺς υἱοὺς τῶν ἀνθρώπων,
τοῦ ἰδεῖν εἰ ἔστιν συνίων ἢ ἐκζητῶν τὸν θεόν.
  The Lord looked down from heaven upon the sons of men,
to see if there were any that understood, or sought after god.
3 πάντες ἐξέκλιναν, ἅμα ἠχρεώθησαν,
οὐκ ἔστιν ποιῶν χρηστότητα, οὐκ ἔστιν ἕως ἑνός.
τάφος ἀνεῳγμένος ὁ λάρυγξ αὐτῶν,
ταῖς γλώσσαις αὐτῶν ἐδολιοῦσαν·
ἰὸς ἀσπίδων ὑπὸ τὰ χείλη αὐτῶν,
ὧν τὸ στόμα ἀρᾶς καὶ πικρίας γέμει·
ὀξεῖς οἱ πόδες αὐτῶν ἐκχέαι αἷμα·
σύντριμμα καὶ ταλαιπωρία ἐν ταῖς ὁδοῖς αὐτῶν,
καὶ ὁδὸν εἰρήνης οὐκ ἔγνωσαν·
οὐκ ἔστιν φόβος θεοῦ ἀπέναντι τῶν ὀφθαλμῶν αὐτῶν.

  They are all gone out of the way, they are together become good for nothing,
there is none that does good, no not one.
Their throat is an open sepulchre;
with their tongues they have used deceit;
the poison of asps is under their lips:
whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness;
their feet are swift to shed blood:
destruction and misery are in their ways;
and the way of peace they have not known:
there is no fear of God before their eyes.
4 οὐχὶ γνώσονται πάντες οἱ ἐργαζόμενοι τὴν ἀδικίαν,
οἱ κατεσθίοντες τὸν λαόν μου βρώσει ἄρτου;
τὸν κύριον οὐκ ἐπεκαλέσαντο.
  Will not all the workers of iniquity know,
who eat up my people as they would eat bread? they have not called upon the Lord.
5 ἐκεῖ ἐδειλίασαν φόβῳ, οὗ οὐκ ἦν φόβος·
ὅτι ὁ θεὸς ἐν γενεᾷ δικαίᾳ.
  There were they alarmed with fear, where there was no fear;
for God is in the righteous generation.
6 βουλὴν πτωχοῦ κατῃσχύνατε,
ὅτι κύριος ἐλπὶς αὐτοῦ ἐστιν.
  Ye have shamed the counsel of the poor,
because the Lord is his hope.
7 τίς δώσει ἐκ Σιων τὸ σωτήριον τοῦ Ισραηλ;
ἐν τῷ ἐπιστρέψαι κύριον τὴν αἰχμαλωσίαν τοῦ λαοῦ αὐτοῦ
ἀγαλλιάσθω Ιακωβ καὶ εὐφρανθήτω Ισραηλ.
  Who will bring the salvation of Israel out of Sion?
when the Lord brings back the captivity of his people,
let Jacob exult, and Israel be glad.
