Psalms 82


The Judge Acts As God

A psalm to Asaph.

1 God stood in the congregation of gods; [2in 3the midst 1and] of gods he examines. 2For how long will you judge injustice, and [2persons 3of sinners 1receive]? 3Judge for the orphan, and the poor! [2to the humble 3and 4needy 1Do justice]! 4Deliver the needy and the poor! [3from 4the hand 5of the sinner 1rescue 2him]! 5They did not know, nor perceived. [2in 3darkness 1They travel]. [6shall be shaken 1All 2the 3foundations 4of the 5earth]. 6I said, You are gods, and [2sons 3of the highest 1all]. 7But you [2as 3men 1die]; and [2as 3one 4of the 5rulers 1fall]. 8Rise up, O God, judge the earth! for you shall inherit among all the nations.
