Psalm 82

1  A Psalm of Asaph. God standeth in the congregation of the mighty; he judgeth among the gods.

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

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

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

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

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

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

8  Arise, O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all nations.
