Psalm 82
King James 2000

A Psalm of Asaph.
A Plea For God's Deliverance

1God stands in the congregation of the mighty; he judges among the gods.

2How long will you judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked? Selah.

3Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy.

4Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked.

5They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course.

6I have said, You are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.

7But you shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.

8Arise, O God, judge the earth: for you shall inherit all nations.

Psalm 81
