Psalm 82

Home | Bible | Psalm | Chapter 82

[1] God standeth in the congregation of the mighty; he judgeth among the gods.

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

[3] Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice 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 walk 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 children of the most High.

[7] But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.

[8] Arise, O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all nations.
