82 Revised Standard Version Passage

1God 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
 
3Give justice to the weak and the fatherless;
maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute.
 
4Rescue the weak and the needy;
deliver them from the hand of the wicked."
 
5They have neither knowledge nor understanding, they walk about in darkness;
all the foundations of the earth are shaken.
 
6I say, "You are gods,
sons of the Most High, all of you;
 
7nevertheless, you shall die like men,
and fall like any prince."
 
8Arise O God, judge the earth;
for to thee belong all the nations!
