Psalm 82
NASB 1995 Par ▾ 
Unjust Judgments Rebuked.

A Psalm of Asaph.

1God takes His stand in His own congregation;
            He judges in the midst of the rulers.

      2How long will you judge unjustly
            And show partiality to the wicked?


      3Vindicate the weak and fatherless;
            Do justice to the afflicted and destitute.

      4Rescue the weak and needy;
            Deliver them out of the hand of the wicked.

      5They do not know nor do they understand;
            They walk about in darkness;
            All the foundations of the earth are shaken.

      6I said, “You are gods,
            And all of you are sons of the Most High.

      7“Nevertheless you will die like men
            And fall like any one of the princes.”

      8Arise, O God, judge the earth!
            For it is You who possesses all the nations.
