A Plea for Justice
A Psalm of Asaph.
82 God stands in the congregation of [a]the mighty;
He judges among the [b]gods.
2 How long will you judge unjustly,
And show partiality to the wicked? Selah
3 [c]Defend the poor and fatherless;
Do justice to the afflicted and needy.
4 Deliver the poor and needy;
Free them from the hand of the wicked.
5 They do not know, nor do they understand;
They walk about in darkness;
All the foundations of the earth are [d]unstable.
6 I said, “You are [e]gods,
And all of you are children of the Most High.
7 But you shall die like men,
And fall like one of the princes.”
8 Arise, O God, judge the earth;
For You shall inherit all nations.
