Psalms 82
A Psalm of Asaph.
1God has taken his place in the divine council;
in the midst of the gods he holds judgment:
2“How long will you judge unjustly
and show partiality to the wicked? Selah
3Give justice to the weak and the fatherless;
maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute.
4Rescue the weak and the needy;
deliver them from the hand of the wicked.”
5They have neither knowledge nor understanding,
they walk about in darkness;
all the foundations of the earth are shaken.
6 # Jn 10.34. I say, “You are gods,
sons of the Most High, all of you;
7nevertheless, you shall die like men,
and fall like any prince.”#82.7 Or fall as one man, O princes
8Arise, O God, judge the earth;
for to thee belong all the nations!
