    and show partiality(A) to the wicked?[b](B)
Defend the weak and the fatherless;(C)
    uphold the cause of the poor(D) and the oppressed.
Rescue the weak and the needy;
    deliver them from the hand of the wicked.

“The ‘gods’ know nothing, they understand nothing.(E)
    They walk about in darkness;(F)
    all the foundations(G) of the earth are shaken.
