Unjust Judgments Rebuked.

A Psalm of Asaph.

82 God takes His (A)position in [a]His assembly;
He (B)judges in the midst of the (C)gods.
How long will you (D)judge unjustly
And (E)show partiality to the wicked? Selah
(F)Vindicate the weak and fatherless;
Do justice to the afflicted and destitute.
(G)Rescue the weak and needy;
Save them from the hand of the wicked.

They (H)do not know nor do they understand;
They (I)walk around in darkness;
All the (J)foundations of the earth are shaken.
[b]I (K)said, “You are gods,
And all of you are (L)sons of the Most High.
Nevertheless (M)you will die like men,
And fall like (N)one of the princes.”
(O)Arise, God, (P)judge the earth!
For You (Q)possess all the nations.
