- A Psalm of Asaph.
God standeth in the congregation of God;
in the midst of the judges He judgeth:
- "How long will ye judge unjustly, and respect the persons of the wicked?
- Judge the poor and fatherless;
do justice to the afflicted and destitute.
- Rescue the poor and needy;
deliver them out of the hand of the wicked.
- They know not, neither do they understand;
they go about in darkness;
all the foundations of the earth are moved.
- I said: Ye are godlike beings, and all of you sons of the Most High.
- Nevertheless ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes."
- Arise, O God, judge the earth;
for Thou shalt possess all nations.
