Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
1 A Psalm of Asaph. God has taken his place in the divine council; in the midst of the gods he holds judgment: 1 God presides in the great assembly; he gives judgment among the "gods":
2 "How long will you judge unjustly and show partiality to the wicked? [Selah] 2 "How long will you defend the unjust and show partiality to the wicked? "Selah"
3 Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute. 3 Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless; maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed.
4 Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked." 4 Rescue the weak and needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.
5 They have neither knowledge nor understanding, they walk about in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are shaken. 5 "They know nothing, they understand nothing. They walk about in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are shaken.
6 I say, "You are gods, sons of the Most High, all of you; 6 "I said, 'You are "gods"; you are all sons of the Most High.'
7 nevertheless, you shall die like men, and fall like any prince." 7 But you will die like mere men; you will fall like every other ruler."
8 Arise, O God, judge the earth; for to thee belong all the nations! 8 Rise up, O God, judge the earth, for all the nations are your inheritance.
