Psalms 82
ICB
82
God Judges the Judges
A song of Asaph.
1God is in charge of the great meeting of his people.
He judges the judges.
2He says, “How long will you defend evil people?
How long will you show greater kindness to the wicked? Selah
3Defend the orphans and the weak.
Defend the rights of the poor and suffering.
4Save the weak and helpless
from the power of the wicked.
5“You know nothing. You don’t understand.
You walk in the dark,
while the world is falling apart.
6I said, ‘You are gods.
You are all sons of the Most High God.’
7But you will die like any other person.
You will die like all the leaders.”
8God, come and judge the earth.
You own all the nations.
