[NAS]  [VSN]  [<<]  [>>]
Psalm 82

Unjust Judgments Rebuked.

A Psalm of Asaph.

1 God takes His stand in His own congregation;
          He judges in the midst of the rulers.

2 How long will you judge unjustly
          And show partiality to the wicked?

3 Vindicate the weak and fatherless;
          Do justice to the afflicted and destitute.

4 Rescue the weak and needy;
          Deliver them out of the hand of the wicked.

5 They do not know nor do they understand;
          They walk about in darkness;
          All the foundations of the earth are shaken.

6 I said, “You are gods,
          And all of you are sons of the Most High.

7 “Nevertheless you will die like men
          And fall like any one of the princes.”

8 Arise, O God, judge the earth!
          For it is You who possesses all the nations.
