A psalm of Asaph.
1God takes his stand in the divine council;
he gives judgment among the gods:
2"How long will you judge unjustly
by granting favor to the wicked? Selah
3Give justice to the lowly and the orphan;
maintain the right of the poor and the destitute!
4Rescue the lowly and the needy.
Deliver them from the power of the wicked!
5They don’t know; they don’t understand;
they wander around in the dark.
All the earth’s foundations shake.
6I hereby declare, "You are gods,
children of the Most High—all of you!
7But you will die like mortals;
you will fall down like any prince."
8Rise up, God! Judge the earth
because you hold all nations in your possession!
