Psalm 82 New Revised Standard Version

A Rebuke of Unjust Judgments

82 God has taken his place in the divine council; in the midst of the gods he holds judgment: 2  "How long will you judge unjustly and show partiality to the wicked? Selah 3  Give justice to the weak and the orphan; maintain the right of the lowly and the destitute. 4  Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked." 5  They have neither knowledge nor understanding, they walk around in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are shaken.

6  I say, "You are gods, children of the Most High, all of you; 7  nevertheless, you shall die like mortals, and fall like any prince." 8  Rise up, O God, judge the earth; for all the nations belong to you!
