PSALM 82 Rescue the weak and needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.

Psalm 82 (New International Version)

Psalm 82

A psalm of Asaph.
 1 God presides in the great assembly;
       he gives judgment among the "gods":

 2 "How long will you defend the unjust
       and show partiality to the wicked?

 3 Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless;
       maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed.

 4 Rescue the weak and needy; 
       deliver them from the hand of the wicked.

 5 "They know nothing, they understand nothing.
       They walk about in darkness;
       all the foundations of the earth are shaken.

 6 "I said, 'You are "gods";
       you are all sons of the Most High.'

 7 But you will die like mere men;
       you will fall like every other ruler."

 8 Rise up, O God, judge the earth,
       for all the nations are your inheritance.
