The Psalms 82

A Rebuke of Unjust Judgments
A Psalm of Asaph.

1  God standeth in the congregation of the mighty;
he judgeth among the gods.
2  How long will ye judge unjustly,
and accept the persons of the wicked?
3  Defend the poor and fatherless:
do justice to the afflicted and needy.
4  Deliver the poor and needy:
rid them out of the hand of the wicked.
5  They know not, neither will they understand;
they walk on in darkness:
all the foundations of the earth are out of course.
6  I have said, Ye are gods; Joh. 10.34
and all of you are children of the Most High.
7  But ye shall die like men,
and fall like one of the princes.
8  Arise, O God, judge the earth:
for thou shalt inherit all nations.
