Psalm 82:1-8

(A psalm of Asaph’s.) 82  God stands in the divine convention, pronounces judgment in the midst of gods. 2  “How long will you judge unfairly, show favor to wrong-doers? (Selah) 3  Give judgment for poor man and orphan; allow a downtrodden and impoverished man to be in the right. 4  Preserve a poor and needy man; deliver him from wrong-doers’ hands. 5  They do not know; they do not perceive; they walk in the dark; all earth’s foundations give way. 6*  I thought you were gods, and sons of the Most High all of you; 7*  But you shall die like human beings, fall like any grandees.” 8  Rise, God; judge the earth; for you are liege lord over all the nations.
