A Rebuke for Unjust Judges
1A psalm of Asaph. God takes His stand in the assembly of God. He judges among the ‘gods’:
2“How long will you judge unjustly and show partiality to the wicked? Selah
3Give justice to the poor and fatherless. Be just to the afflicted and destitute.
4Rescue the weak and needy. Deliver them out of the hand of the wicked.
5They know nothing; they understand nothing— they walk about in darkness. All of earth’s foundations are shaken.
6I said: ‘You are ‘gods’, and you are all sons of Elyon,
7yet you will die like men, and will fall like any of the princes.’”
8Arise, O God, judge the earth! For You possess all the nations.
