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.
