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 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 gods;
And all of you 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.
