Psalms 82

Rescue the Weak and Needy

A Psalm of a Asaph.

b God c has taken his place in the divine council;
in the midst of d the gods he e holds judgment:
How long will you judge unjustly
and f show partiality to g the wicked?  Selah
h Give justice to i the weak and the fatherless;
j maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute.
k Rescue the weak and the needy;
l deliver them from the hand of the wicked.”
m They have neither knowledge nor understanding,
n they walk about in darkness;
o all the foundations of the earth are p shaken.
q I said, “You are gods,
sons of the Most High, all of you;
nevertheless, like men r you shall die,
and fall like any prince.”
Or  fall as one man, O princes

t Arise, O God, judge the earth;
for you shall u inherit all the nations!
