Psalm 82 Revised Standard Version

A Rebuke of Unjust Judgments

82 A Psalm of Asaph. 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 fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted 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 about in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are shaken.

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