Psalm 82

    Psalm 82

    Thus says the Lord, Ye are gods and children of the Most High.

    A Psalm of Asaph.

    1 God astandeth in the congregation of the mighty; he judgeth among the gods.

    2 How long will ye judge unjustly, and accept the apersons of the wicked? Selah.

    3 Defend the poor and fatherless: do ajustice to the afflicted and needy.

    4 Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked.

    5 They know not, neither will they understand; they awalk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course.

    6 I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are achildren of the most High.

    7 But ye shall adie like men, and fall like one of the princes.

    8 Arise, O God, ajudge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all nations.
