Psalms 82

A psalm of Asaph.

God standeth in God’s assembly, He judgeth in the midst of the gods. "How long will ye judge unjustly, And favor the cause of the wicked? [Pause.] Defend the poor and the fatherless; Do justice to the wretched and the needy! Deliver the poor and the destitute; Save them from the hand of the wicked! They are without knowledge and without understanding; They walk in darkness: Therefore all the foundations of the land are shaken. I have said, Ye are gods, And all of you children of the Most High; But ye shall die like men, And fall like the rest of the princes." Arise, O God! judge the earth! For all the nations are thy possession.
