Psalm 82 World English Bible (WEB)

A Psalm by Asaph.

82 God presides in the great assembly.
    He judges among the gods.
“How long will you judge unjustly,
    and show partiality to the wicked?”
Selah.

“Defend the weak, the poor, and the fatherless.
    Maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed.
Rescue the weak and needy.
    Deliver them out of the hand of the wicked.”
They don’t know, neither do they understand.
    They walk back and forth in darkness.
    All the foundations of the earth are shaken.
I said, “You are gods,
    all of you are sons of the Most High.
Nevertheless you shall die like men,
    and fall like one of the rulers.”
Arise, God, judge the earth,
    for you inherit all of the nations.

Psalm 82 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Unjust Judgments Rebuked.

A Psalm of Asaph.

82 God takes His stand in [a]His own congregation;
He judges in the midst of the [b]rulers.
How long will you judge unjustly
And show partiality to the wicked? [c]Selah.
Vindicate the weak and fatherless;
Do justice to the afflicted and destitute.
Rescue the weak and needy;
Deliver them out of the hand of the wicked.

They do not know nor do they understand;
They walk about in darkness;
All the foundations of the earth are shaken.
[d]I said, “You are gods,
And all of you are sons of the Most High.
“Nevertheless you will die like men
And fall like any one of the princes.”
Arise, O God, judge the earth!
For it is You who possesses all the nations.
