Psalm 82

A Plea for Justice

A Psalm of Asaph.

1

God has taken his place in the divine council;

in the midst of the gods he holds judgment:

2

“How long will you judge unjustly

and show partiality to the wicked?Selah

3

Give justice to the weak and the orphan;

maintain the right of the lowly and the destitute.

4

Rescue the weak and the needy;

deliver them from the hand of the wicked.”

 

5

They have neither knowledge nor understanding,

they walk around in darkness;

all the foundations of the earth are shaken.

 

6

I say, “You are gods,

children of the Most High, all of you;

7

nevertheless, you shall die like mortals,

and fall like any prince.”

 

8

Rise up, O God, judge the earth;

for all the nations belong to you!
