Psalm 82New International Version
A psalm of Asaph.
1 God presides in the great assembly;
he renders judgment(A) among the “gods”:(B)
2 “How long will you[a] defend the unjust
and show partiality(C) to the wicked?[b](D)
3 Defend the weak and the fatherless;(E)
uphold the cause of the poor(F) and the oppressed.
4 Rescue the weak and the needy;
deliver them from the hand of the wicked.
5 “The ‘gods’ know nothing, they understand nothing.(G)
They walk about in darkness;(H)
all the foundations(I) of the earth are shaken.
6 “I said, ‘You are “gods”;(J)
you are all sons of the Most High.’
7 But you will die(K) like mere mortals;
you will fall like every other ruler.”
8 Rise up,(L) O God, judge(M) the earth,
for all the nations are your inheritance.(N)
