Psalm 82:1–6

God stands in the divine assembly;b

he administers judgment in the midst of the gods.c

“How long will you judge unjustly

and show favoritism to the wicked?d Selah

Judge on behalf of the helpless and the orphan;

provide justice to the afflicted and the poor.

Rescue the helpless and the needy;

deliver them from the hand of the wicked.”

They do not know or consider.e

They go about in the darkness,

so that all the foundations of the earth are shaken.

I have said,f “You are gods,

and sons of the Most High, all of you.
