Psalm 82 (Lexham English Bible)

View In My Bible

A psalm of Asaph.

God Commands Justice

1 aGod stands in the divine assembly;b he administers judgment in the midst of [the] gods.c 2 "How long will you judge unjustly and {show favoritism to the wicked}?d Selah 3 Judge [on behalf of the] helpless and [the] orphan; provide justice [to the] afflicted and [the] poor. 4 Rescue [the] helpless and [the] needy; deliver [them] from the hand of [the] wicked." 5 They do not know or consider.e They go about in the darkness, [so that] all [the] foundations of [the] earth are shaken. 6 I have said,f "You [are] gods, and sons of the Most High, all of you. 7 However, you will die like men,g and you will fall like one of the princes." 8 Rise up, O God, judge the earth, because you shall inherith all the nations.
