Passage: Psalms 82 (RSV)

Psalms 82

A Song. A Psalm of Asaph.

1God 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]
3Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute.
4Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked."
5They have neither knowledge nor understanding, they walk about in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are shaken.
6I say, "You are gods, sons of the Most High, all of you;
7nevertheless, you shall die like men, and fall like any prince."
8Arise, O God, judge the earth; for to thee belong all the nations!
