A Rebuke for Unjust Judges

Psalm 82

A psalm of Asaph.
God takes His stand in the assembly of God.
He judges among the ‘gods’:
“How long will you judge unjustly
and show partiality to the wicked? Selah
Give justice to the poor and fatherless.
Be just to the afflicted and destitute.
Rescue the weak and needy.
Deliver them out of the hand of the wicked.
They know nothing;
they understand nothing—
they walk about in darkness.
All of earth’s foundations are shaken.
I said: ‘You are ‘gods’,
and you are all sons of Elyon,[a]
yet you will die like men,
and will fall like any of the princes.’”

Arise, O God, judge the earth!
For You possess all the nations.
