1 A Psalm of Asaph. God has stood in the synagogue of gods, but, in their midst, he decides between gods.
2 How long will you judge unjustly and favor the faces of sinners?
3 Judge for the indigent and the orphan. Do justice to the humble and the poor.
4 Rescue the poor, and free the needy from the hand of the sinner.
5 They did not know and did not understand. They wander in darkness. All the foundations of the earth will be moved.
6 I said: You are gods, and all of you are sons of the Most High.
7 But you will die like men, and you will fall just like one of the princes.
8 Rise up, O God. Judge the earth. For you will inherit it with all the nations.
