Psalm 82

A Psalm of Asaph.

1God standeth in the congregation of God;

He judgeth among the gods.

2How long will ye judge unjustly,

And respect the persons of the wicked? Selah

3Judge the poor and fatherless:

Do justice to the afflicted and destitute.

4Rescue the poor and needy:

Deliver them out of the hand of the wicked.

5They know not, neither do they understand;

They walk to and fro in darkness:

All the foundations of the earth are shaken.

6I said, Ye are gods,

And all of you sons of the Most High.

7Nevertheless ye shall die like men,

And fall like one of the princes.

8Arise, O God, judge the earth;

For thou shalt inherit all the nations.

ASV 1901

About American Standard Version

The ASV has long been regarded by many scholars as the most literal English translation since the King James Version—maybe the most literal translation ever. This has made the translation very popular for careful English Bible study, but not for ease of reading. While the KJV was translated entirely from “western manuscripts,” the ASV 1901 was influenced also by the older “eastern manuscripts” that form the basis for most of our modern English translations. Because the ASV 1901 is very difficult to find in print, Logos is pleased to be able to preserve and distribute this significant work. This is an excellent choice for comparative English study.
