Psalm 82

A Psalm of Asaph
God stands in the assembly of the powerful
in the midst of gods he judges
How long will you judge wrongly
and accept the presence of the wicked?
Judge on behalf of the weak and fatherless
to the afflicted and needy do what is right
Deliver the weak and poor
from the hand of the wicked rescue them

They do not know and they do not understand
they are walking in the darkness
dislodged are all the foundations of earth

I said you are gods
and children of the Most High all of you
Surely as humans you will die
and as one of the chiefs you will fall
Arise O God judge the earth
for you will inherit among all the nations
