Psalms 82

Rescue the Weak and Needy

A Psalm of aAsaph.

1 bGod chas taken his place in the divine council;
in the midst of dthe gods he eholds judgment:
2How long will you judge unjustly
and fshow partiality to gthe wicked?  Selah
3 hGive justice to ithe weak and the fatherless;
jmaintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute.
4 kRescue the weak and the needy;
ldeliver them from the hand of the wicked.”
5 mThey have neither knowledge nor understanding,
nthey walk about in darkness;
oall the foundations of the earth are pshaken.
6 qI said, “You are gods,
sons of the Most High, all of you;
7nevertheless, like men ryou shall die,
and fall like any prince.”
Or  fall as one man, O princes

8 tArise, O God, judge the earth;
for you shall uinherit all the nations!
