Psalm 82


1. In solemn court the “gods” assemble;
before the Lord they stand and tremble.
There in their midst he takes his place
and they his righteous judgment face:
“You judge unjustly. How much longer
will you with falsehood rouse my anger?
How long yet will you partial be
to those whose wickedness you see?

2. “Defend the weak and the afflicted;
ensure that orphans are protected.
The rights of the oppressed maintain.
Deliver them from wicked men.
But, look, the poor are left forsaken;
the order of the world is shaken.
There is no justice, all are fools,
and everywhere the darkness rules.

3. “You all are gods, as I have told you;
yes, sons of God Most High I’ve called you.
But as mere mortals you will die,
for you my just decrees defy.
In spite of all your proud pretences,
you’ll fall like any other princes.”
O God, arise! The earth now judge:
all nations are your heritage!
