Psalms 82

1 God stands in the congregation of God. He judges among the gods.

2 How long will ye judge unjustly, and respect the persons of the wicked? Selah.

3 Judge the poor man and the orphan. Do justice to the afflicted and destitute man.

4 Rescue the poor and needy man. Deliver from the hand of the wicked man.

5 They know not, nor do they understand. They walk to and fro in darkness. All the foundations of the earth are shaken.

6 I said, Ye are gods, and all of you sons of the Most High.

7 Nevertheless ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the rulers.

8 Arise, O God, judge the earth, for thou shall inherit all the nations.
