Psalm 82

A Psalm of Asaph.

God stands among the divine council;
    He renders judgment among the gods.

“How long will you all judge unjustly
    and accept partiality of the wicked? Selah
Defend the poor and fatherless;
    vindicate the afflicted and needy.
Grant escape to the abused and the destitute,
    pluck them out of the hand of the false.

“They have neither knowledge nor understanding;
    they walk in darkness:
    all the foundations of the earth are shaken.”

I have said, “You are gods,
    sons of the Most High, all of you,
but you all shall die like men,
    and fall like a man, O princes.”

Arise, O God, judge the earth,
    for You shall inherit all nations.
