Psalm 82

1God standeth in the congregation of the mighty;

He judgeth among the gods.

2How long will ye judge unjustly,

And accept the persons of the wicked? Selah.

3Defend the poor and fatherless:

Do justice to the afflicted and needy.

4Deliver the poor and needy:

Rid them out of the hand of the wicked.

5They know not, neither will they understand; They walk on in darkness:

All the foundations of the earth are out of course.

6I have said, Ye are gods;

And all of you are children of the most High.

7But ye shall die like men,

And fall like one of the princes.

8Arise, O God, judge the earth:

For thou shalt inherit all nations.
