God presides in the great assembly; he gives judgment1 among the "gods":22
"How long will youa defend the unjust and show partiality3 to the wicked?4 "Selah"
Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless;5 maintain the rights of the poor6 and oppressed.
Rescue the weak and needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.
"They know nothing, they understand nothing.7 They walk about in darkness;8 all the foundations9 of the earth are shaken.
"I said, 'You are "gods";10 you are all sons of the Most High.'
But you will die11 like mere men; you will fall like every other ruler."
Rise up,12 O God, judge13 the earth, for all the nations are your inheritance.14
