Psalm 82 New Living Translation

A Rebuke of Unjust Judgments

82 1  God presides over heaven's court; he pronounces judgment on the heavenly beings: 2  "How long will you hand down unjust decisions by favoring the wicked? Interlude 3  "Give justice to the poor and the orphan; uphold the rights of the oppressed and the destitute. 4  Rescue the poor and helpless; deliver them from the grasp of evil people. 5  But these oppressors know nothing; they are so ignorant! They wander about in darkness, while the whole world is shaken to the core.

6  I say, 'You are gods; you are all children of the Most High. 7  But you will die like mere mortals and fall like every other ruler.'" 8  Rise up, O¬†God, and judge the earth, for all the nations belong to you.
