Rescue the Weak and Needy
A Psalm of a Asaph.1 b God c has taken his place in the divine council;
in the midst of d the gods he e holds judgment:
2 “How long will you judge unjustly
and f show partiality to g the wicked? Selah
3 h Give justice to i the weak and the fatherless;
j maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute.
4 k Rescue the weak and the needy;
l deliver them from the hand of the wicked.”
5 m They have neither knowledge nor understanding,
n they walk about in darkness;
o all the foundations of the earth are p shaken.
6 q I said, “You are gods,
sons of the Most High, all of you;
7 nevertheless, like men r you shall die,
and fall like any prince.” ▼
▼ Or fall as one man, O princes
8 t Arise, O God, judge the earth;
for you shall u inherit all the nations!
