Psalm 82 MSG

1 God calls the judges into his courtroom, he puts all the judges in the dock.
2 "Enough! You've corrupted justice long enough, you've let the wicked get away with murder.
3 You're here to defend the defenseless, to make sure that underdogs get a fair break;
4 Your job is to stand up for the powerless, and prosecute all those who exploit them."
5 Ignorant judges! Head-in-the-sand judges! They haven't a clue to what's going on. And now everything's falling apart, the world's coming unglued.
6 "I commissioned you judges, each one of you, deputies of the High God,
7 But you've betrayed your commission and now you're stripped of your rank, busted."
8 O God, give them their just deserts! You've got the whole world in your hands!
