Psalm 82
A Plea for Righteous Judgment
A psalm of Asaph.#1Ch 16:5,7
1God stands in the divine assembly;
he pronounces judgment among the gods:#82:1 Or the heavenly beings, or the earthly rulers; Hb elohim#Jb 21:22; Ps 7:8; 58:11
2“How long will you judge unjustly
and show partiality to the wicked?#Dt 1:17; Pr 18:5; Mal 2:9Selah
3Provide justice for the needy and the fatherless;
uphold the rights of the oppressed and the destitute.#Dt 24:17; Is 11:4; Jr 22:16
4Rescue the poor and needy;
save them from the power of the wicked.”#Jb 29:12; Pr 24:11
5They do not know or understand;
they wander in darkness.#Pr 2:13; Is 44:18
All the foundations of the earth are shaken.#Ps 11:3
6I said, “You are gods;#Jn 10:34
you are all sons of the Most High.#Ps 82:1; Lk 6:35
7However, you will die like humans
and fall like any other ruler.”#Ps 49:12
8Rise up, God, judge the earth,
for all the nations belong to you.#Ps 58:11; 96:13
