Psalm 82
New American Standard Bible 1995English Standard Version
1A Psalm of Asaph. God takes His stand in His own congregation; He judges in the midst of the rulers.1God has taken his place in the divine council; in the midst of the gods he holds judgment:
2How long will you judge unjustly And show partiality to the wicked? Selah.2“How long will you judge unjustly and show partiality to the wicked? Selah
3Vindicate the weak and fatherless; Do justice to the afflicted and destitute.3Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute.
4Rescue the weak and needy; Deliver them out of the hand of the wicked.4Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from 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.5They have neither knowledge nor understanding, 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.6I said, “You are gods, sons of the Most High, all of you;
7"Nevertheless you will die like men And fall like any one of the princes."7nevertheless, like men you shall die, and fall like any prince.”
8Arise, O God, judge the earth! For it is You who possesses all the nations.8Arise, O God, judge the earth; for you shall inherit all the nations!
