(82) A Psalm for Asaph.
1 God stands in the assembly of gods; and in the midst of them will judge gods.
2 How long will you° judge unrighteously, and accept the persons of sinners? Pause.
3 Judge the orphan and poor: * Gr. justify. do justice to the low and needy.
4 Rescue the needy, and deliver the poor out of the hand of the sinner.
5 They know not, nor understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth shall be shaken.
6 I have said, You° are gods; and all of you children of the Most High.
7 But you° die as men, and fall as one of the princes.
8 Arise, O God, judge the earth: for you shall inherit all nations.
*81:3 Gr. justify.
