Bible: Psalm 82
Psalm 82 1
82:1 A psalm of Asaph.
82:2 He says, 6 “How long will you make unjust legal decisions
and show favoritism to the wicked? 7 (Selah)
82:3 Defend the cause of the poor and the fatherless! 8
Vindicate the oppressed and suffering!
82:4 Rescue the poor and needy!
Deliver them from the power 9 of the wicked!
82:5 They 10 neither know nor understand.
They stumble 11 around in the dark,
while all the foundations of the earth crumble. 12
82:6 I thought, 13 ‘You are gods;
all of you are sons of the Most High.’ 14
82:7 Yet you will die like mortals; 15
you will fall like all the other rulers.” 16
82:8 Rise up, O God, and execute judgment on the earth!
For you own 17 all the nations.
