|82||Revised Standard Version||Passage|
|1||God has taken his place in the divine council; |
in the midst of the gods he holds judgment:
|Against corrupt Judges. Psalm 82(v81)|
|2||"How long will you judge unjustly |
and show partiality to the wicked? Selah
|3||Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; |
maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute.
|4||Rescue the weak and the needy; |
deliver them from the hand of the wicked."
|5||They have neither knowledge nor understanding, they walk about in darkness; |
all the foundations of the earth are shaken.
|6||I say, "You are gods, |
sons of the Most High, all of you;
|7||nevertheless, you shall die like men, |
and fall like any prince."
|8||Arise O God, judge the earth;|
for to thee belong all the nations!
