King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
1 God standeth in the congregation of the mighty; he judgeth among the gods. 1 God presides in the great assembly; he gives judgment among the "gods":
2 How long will ye judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked? Selah. 2 "How long will you defend the unjust and show partiality to the wicked? "Selah"
3 Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy . 3 Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless; maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed.
4 Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked. 4 Rescue the weak and needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.
5 They know not, neither will they understand ; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course . 5 "They know nothing, they understand nothing. They walk about in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are shaken.
6 I have said , Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High. 6 "I said, 'You are "gods"; you are all sons of the Most High.'
7 But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes. 7 But you will die like mere men; you will fall like every other ruler."
8 Arise , O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all nations. 8 Rise up, O God, judge the earth, for all the nations are your inheritance.
