Psalm 82Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
A Plea for Righteous Judgment
A psalm of Asaph.
1 God has taken His place in the divine assembly;
He judges among the gods:
2 “How long will you judge unjustly
and show partiality to the wicked?Selah
3 Provide justice for the needy and the fatherless;
uphold the rights of the oppressed and the destitute.
4 Rescue the poor and needy;
save them from the power of the wicked.”
5 They do not know or understand;
they wander in darkness.
All the foundations of the earth are shaken.
6 I said, “You are gods;
you are all sons of the Most High.
7 However, you will die like men
and fall like any other ruler.”
8 Rise up, God, judge the earth,
for all the nations belong to You.
