Psalm 82

1 God standeth in the congregation of the mighty. he judgeth among the gods.

2 How long will ye judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked? Selah.

3 Defend the poor and fatherless, do justice to the afflicted and needy.

4 Deliver the poor and needy' rid them out of 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.

6 I have said, Ye are gods, and all of you are children of the most High.

7 But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.

8 Arise, 0 God, judge the earth, for thou shalt inherit all nations.
