1 “A psalm of Assaph.” God standeth in the congregation of God, in the midst of judges doth he judge.
2 How long will ye judge unjustly, and treat with favor the face of the wicked? Selah.
3 Judge uprightly the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and indigent.
4 Release the poor and needy: deliver them out of the power of the wicked.
5 They know not, nor will they understand; in darkness do they walk on: all the foundations of the earth are moved.
6 I have indeed said, Ye are gods; and children of the most High are all of you.
7 But verily like men shall ye die, and like one of the princes shall ye fall.
8 Arise, O God, judge the earth; for thou wilt possess all the nations.
