PSALM 82

« Psalm 81 | Psalm 82 | Psalm 83 »

Rescue the Weak and Needy
A Psalm of Asaph.
82:1
God has taken his place in the divine council;
in the midst of the gods he holds judgment:
2
“How long will you judge unjustly
and show partiality to the wicked? Selah
3
Give justice to the weak and the fatherless;
maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute.
4
Rescue the weak and the needy;
deliver them from the hand of the wicked.”

5
They have neither knowledge nor understanding,
they walk about in darkness;
all the foundations of the earth are shaken.

6
I said, “You are gods,
sons of the Most High, all of you;
7
nevertheless, like men you shall die,
and fall like any prince.”

8
Arise, O God, judge the earth;
for you shall inherit all the nations!
