Psalm 82 (81)
17God judges the judges.
17 God presides in the divine council;
17 he gives judgment among the gods:
2 “How long will you judge unjustly
2 and show partiality to the wicked?
3 Give justice to the weak and the orphan;
3 defend the poor and the oppressed.
4 Rescue the helpless and the needy;
4 deliver them from the hand of the wicked.”
5 Without knowledge and understanding,
5 they walk about in darkness;
5 all the earth’s foundations are shaken.
6 “You are gods,” I said,
6 “you are all sons of the Most High.”
7 But now you will die like the others;
7 you will all fall like any mortal.
8 Rise, O God, judge the earth,
8 you who guide all the nations.
