Psalm 82

1 [A psalm by Asaph.] God takes his place in his own assembly. He pronounces judgment among the gods:

2 "How long are you going to judge unfairly? How long are you going to side with wicked people?" [Selah]

3 Defend weak people and orphans. Protect the rights of the oppressed and the poor.

4 Rescue weak and needy people. Help them escape the power of wicked people.

5 Wicked people do not know or understand anything. As they walk around in the dark, all the foundations of the earth shake.

6 I said, "You are gods. You are all sons of the Most High.

7 You will certainly die like humans and fall like any prince."

8 Arise, O God! Judge the earth, because all the nations belong to you.
