Psalm 82


Arise, O God, judge the earth: God standeth in the congregation of the mighty;
he judgeth among the gods.
How long will ye judge unjustly,
and accept the persons of the wicked?


Defend the poor and fatherless:
do justice to the afflicted and needy.
Deliver the poor and needy:
rid them out of the hand of the wicked.
They know not, neither will they understand;
they walk on in darkness:
all the foundations of the earth are out of course.

I have said, Ye are gods;
and all of you are children of the most High.
But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.

Arise, O God, judge the earth:
for thou shalt inherit all nations.
