1 God takes his place at the head of a large gathering of leaders. He announces his decisions among them.
2 He says, “How long will you stand up for those who aren’t fair to others? How long will you show mercy to sinful people? 3 Stand up for the weak and for children whose fathers have died. Protect the rights of people who are poor or treated badly. 4 Save those who are weak and needy. Save them from the power of sinful people.
5 “You leaders don’t know anything. You don’t understand anything. You are in the dark about what is right. Law and order have been destroyed all over the world.
6 “I said, ‘You leaders are like gods. You are all children of the Most High God.’ 7 But you will die, like mere human beings. You will die like every other leader.”
8 God, rise up. Judge the earth. All the nations belong to you.
