Bible: Psalm 82

Psalm 82 1 

82:1 A psalm of Asaph.

God stands in 2  the assembly of El; 3 

in the midst of the gods 4  he renders judgment. 5 

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.
