82:1 A Psalm of Asaph. God standeth in the congregation of God; in the midst of the judges He judgeth:
82:2 'How long will ye judge unjustly, and respect the persons of the wicked? Selah
82:3 Judge the poor and fatherless; do justice to the afflicted and destitute.
82:4 Rescue the poor and needy; deliver them out of the hand of the wicked.
82:5 They know not, neither do they understand; they go about in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are moved.
82:6 I said: Ye are godlike beings, and all of you sons of the Most High.
82:7 Nevertheless ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.'
82:8 Arise, O God, judge the earth; for Thou shalt possess all nations.
