Psalm 82

A Psalm of Asaph.


1In gods’ assembly God doth stand;

he judgeth gods among.

2How long, accepting persons vile,

will ye give judgment wrong?

3Defend the poor and fatherless;

to poor oppress’d do right.

4The poor and needy ones set free;

rid them from ill men’s might.

5They know not, nor will understand;

in darkness they walk on:

All the foundations of the earth

out of their course are gone.

6I said that ye are gods, and are

sons of the Highest all:

7But ye shall die like men, and as

one of the princes fall.

8O God, do thou raise up thyself,

the earth to judgment call:

For thou, as thine inheritance,

shalt take the nations all.
