Psalms 82

1

A psalm of Asaph.

1

God presides in the great assembly;
he renders judgment among the “gods”:

2

“How long will you[a] defend the unjust
and show partiality to the wicked?[b]

3 Defend the weak and the fatherless;
uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed.

4 Rescue the weak and the needy;
deliver them from the hand of the wicked.

5

“The ‘gods’ know nothing, they understand nothing.
They walk about in darkness;
all the foundations of the earth are shaken.

6

“I said, ‘You are “gods”;
you are all sons of the Most High.’

7 But you will die like mere mortals;
you will fall like every other ruler.”

8

Rise up, O God, judge the earth,
for all the nations are your inheritance.
