— A Psalm of Asaph.
1God hath stood in the company of God, In the midst God doth judge.
2Till when do ye judge perversely? And the face of the wicked lift up? Selah.
3Judge ye the weak and fatherless, The afflicted and the poor declare righteous.
4Let the weak and needy escape, From the hand of the wicked deliver them.
5They knew not, nor do they understand, In darkness they walk habitually, Moved are all the foundations of earth.
6I — I have said, ‘Gods ye [are], And sons of the Most High — all of you,
7But as man ye die, and as one of the heads ye fall,
8Rise, O God, judge the earth, For Thou hast inheritance among all the nations!
