Psalm 82

Rescue the Weak and Needy

1 God a stands in the congregation of 1 the mighty;
He judges among b the 2 gods. 3
2 How long will you judge unjustly,
And c show partiality to the wicked? Selah
3 4 Defend the poor and fatherless;
Do justice to the afflicted and d needy.
4 Deliver the poor and needy;
Free them from the hand of the wicked.

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

6 I said, f "You are 6 gods, 7
And all of you are children of the Most High.
7 But you shall die like men,
And fall like one of the princes."

8 Arise, O God, judge the earth;
g For You shall inherit all nations.
