Psalms Chapter 82 - New International Version

1. Psalm 82 A psalm of Asaph.

1. God presides in the great assembly; he gives judgment among the "gods":

2. "How long will you [1] defend the unjust and show partiality to the wicked?

3. Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless; maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed.

4. Rescue the weak and needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.

5. "They know nothing, they understand nothing. They walk about in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are shaken.

6. "I said, `You are "gods"; you are all sons of the Most High.'

7. But you will die like mere men; you will fall like every other ruler."

8. Rise up, O God, judge the earth, for all the nations are your inheritance.
