Tehillim - Psalms 82

1A Psalm of Asaph.

God standeth in the congregation of God;In the midst of the judges He judgeth:

2‘How long will ye judge unjustly,And respect the persons of the wicked?Selah
3Judge the poor and fatherless;Do justice to the afflicted and destitute.
4Rescue the poor and needy;Deliver them out of the hand of the wicked.
5They know not, neither do they understand;They go about in darkness;All the foundations of the earth are moved.
6I said: Ye are godlike beings,And all of you sons of the Most High.
7Nevertheless ye shall die like men,And fall like one of the princes.’
8Arise, O God, judge the earth;For Thou shalt possess all the nations.
