Psalms 82
New Living Translation

A psalm of Asaph.

82God presides over heaven’s court; he pronounces judgment on the heavenly beings.

2“How long will you hand down unjust decisions by favoring the wicked? Interlude

3“Give justice to the poor and the orphan; uphold the rights of the oppressed and the destitute.

4Rescue the poor and helpless; deliver them from the grasp of evil people.

5But these oppressors know nothing; they are so ignorant! They wander about in darkness, while the whole world is shaken to the core.

6I say, ‘You are gods; you are all children of the Most High.

7But you will die like mere mortals and fall like every other ruler.’”

8Rise up, O God, and judge the earth, for all the nations belong to you.
