Psalm 8229

A psalm of Asaph.

82:1 God stands in1 the assembly of El;2

in the midst of the gods3 he renders judgment.4

82:2 He says,5 “How long will you make unjust legal decisions

and show favoritism to the wicked?6


82:3 Defend the cause of the poor and the fatherless!7

Vindicate the oppressed and suffering!

82:4 Rescue the poor and needy!

Deliver them from the power8 of the wicked!

82:5 They9 neither know nor understand.

They stumble10 around in the dark,

while all the foundations of the earth crumble.11

82:6 I thought,12 ‘You are gods;

all of you are sons of the Most High.’13

82:7 Yet you will die like mortals;14

you will fall like all the other rulers.”15

82:8 Rise up, O God, and execute judgment on the earth!

For you own16 all the nations.
