Psalm 82 World English Bible

A Rebuke of Unjust Judgments

82 God presides in the great assembly.
He judges among the gods. 2  “How long will you judge unjustly,
and show partiality to the wicked?” Selah. 3  “Defend the weak, the poor, and the fatherless.
Maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed. 4  Rescue the weak and needy.
Deliver them out of the hand of the wicked.” 5  They don’t know, neither do they understand.
They walk back and forth in darkness.
All the foundations of the earth are shaken.

6  I said, “You are gods,
all of you are sons of the Most High. 7  Nevertheless you shall die like men,
and fall like one of the rulers.” 8  Arise, God, judge the earth,
for you inherit all of the nations.
