A Plea for Justice
A Psalm of Asaph.
1God #(2 Chr. 19:6; Eccl. 5:8)stands in the congregation of the mighty;
He judges among #Ps. 82:6the gods.
2How long will you judge unjustly,
And #(Deut. 1:17); Prov. 18:5show partiality to the wicked?
3Defend the poor and fatherless;
Do justice to the afflicted and #(Deut. 24:17; Is. 11:4; Jer. 22:16)needy.
4Deliver the poor and needy;
Free them from the hand of the wicked.
5They do not know, nor do they understand;
They walk about in darkness;
All the #Ps. 11:3foundations of the earth are unstable.
6I said, #John 10:34“You are gods,
And all of you are children of the Most High.
7But you shall die like men,
And fall like one of the princes.”
8Arise, O God, judge the earth;
#Ps. 2:8; (Rev. 11:15)For You shall inherit all nations.
