(81-1) <A psalm for Asaph.> God hath stood in the congregation of gods: and being in the midst of them he judgeth gods.
(81-2) How long will you judge unjustly: and accept the persons of the wicked?
(81-3) Judge for the needy and fatherless: do justice to the humble and the poor.
(81-4) Rescue the poor; and deliver the needy out of the hand of the sinner.
(81-5) They have not known nor understood: they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth shall be moved.
(81-6) I have said: You are gods and all of you the sons of the most High.
(81-7) But you like men shall die: and shall fall like one of the princes.
(81-8) Arise, O God, judge thou the earth: for thou shalt inherit among all the nations.
