1 God presides in the great assembly. He judges among the gods.
2 'How long will you judge unjustly, And show partiality to the wicked?' Selah.
3 'Defend the weak, the poor, and the fatherless. Maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed.
4 Rescue the weak and needy. Deliver them out of the hand of the wicked.'
5 They don't know, neither do they understand. They walk back and forth in darkness. All the foundations of the earth are shaken.
6 I said, 'You are gods, All of you are sons of the Most High.
7 Nevertheless you shall die like men, And fall like one of the rulers.'
8 Arise, God, judge the earth, For you inherit all of the nations. Psalm 83 A song. A Psalm by Asaph.
