Psalm 82

God Stands in Judgment

A Psalm of Asaph.

God takes His stand in the congregation of God;
He judges in the midst of gods.
How long will you judge unrighteously
And show partiality to the wicked? Selah.
Give justice to the poor and the orphan;
Justify the afflicted and destitute.
Protect the poor and needy;
Deliver them out of the hand of the wicked.

They do not know and do not understand;
They walk about in darkness;
All the foundations of the earth are shaken.
I said, “You are gods,
And all of you are sons of the Most High.
Nevertheless you will die like men
And you will fall like any one of the princes.”
Arise, O God, judge the earth!
For it is You who will inherit all the nations.
