A Rebuke of Unjust Judgments
82 1 God hath stood in the company of God, In the midst God doth judge. 2 Till when do ye judge perversely? And the face of the wicked lift up? Selah. 3 Judge ye the weak and fatherless, The afflicted and the poor declare righteous. 4 Let the weak and needy escape, From the hand of the wicked deliver them. 5 They knew not, nor do they understand, In darkness they walk habitually, Moved are all the foundations of earth.
6 I—I have said, 'Gods ye 'are', And sons of the Most High—all of you, 7 But as man ye die, and as one of the heads ye fall, 8 Rise, O God, judge the earth, For Thou hast inheritance among all the nations!
