Psalm 82(ESV)

A Psalm of Asaph. 

1 God has taken his place in the divine council; in the midst of the gods he holds judgment: 

2 “How long will you judge unjustly 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. 

4 Rescue the weak and the 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. 

6 I said, “You are gods, sons of the Most High, all of you; 

7 nevertheless, like men you shall die, and fall like any prince.” 

8 Arise, O God, judge the earth; for you shall inherit all the nations!
