Psalms - Chapter 82 | New King James Version

  • 1. A Psalm of Asaph. God stands in the congregation of the mighty; He judges among the gods. {cf2super [78]}
  • 2. How long will you judge unjustly, And show partiality to the wicked? Selah
  • 3. Defend the poor and fatherless; Do justice to the afflicted and needy.
  • 4. Deliver the poor and needy; Free them from the hand of the wicked.
  • 5. They do not know, nor do they understand; They walk about in darkness; All the foundations of the earth are unstable.
  • 6. I said, "You are gods, {cf2super [79]} And all of you are children of the Most High.
  • 7. But you shall die like men, And fall like one of the princes."
  • 8. Arise, O God, judge the earth; For You shall inherit all nations.
