1 A Psalm for Asaph.
God stands in the assembly of gods; and in the midst of them will judge gods.
2 How long will ye judge unrighteously, and accept the persons of sinners? Pause. 3 Judge the orphan and poor: * Gr. justify.do justice to the low and needy. 4 Rescue the needy, and deliver the poor out of the hand of the sinner.
5 They know not, nor understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth shall be shaken. 6 I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you children of the Most High. 7 But ye die as men, and fall as one of the princes.
8 Arise, O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all nations.
*81:3 Gr. justify.
