Psalm 82Lexham English Bible (LEB)
God Commands Justice
A psalm of Asaph.
82 God stands in the divine assembly;
he administers judgment in the midst of the gods.
2 “How long will you judge unjustly
and show favoritism to the wicked? Selah
3 Judge on behalf of the helpless and the orphan;
provide justice to the afflicted and the poor.
4 Rescue the helpless and the needy;
deliver them from the hand of the wicked.”
5 They do not know or consider.
They go about in the darkness,
so that all the foundations of the earth are shaken.
6 I have said, “You are gods,
and sons of the Most High, all of you.
7 However, you will die like men,
and you will fall like one of the princes.”
8 Rise up, O God, judge the earth,
because you shall inherit all the nations.
