A Psalm of Asaph.
1
God standeth in the congregation of the mighty;
he judgeth among the gods.
2
How long will ye judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked?
Selah.
3
Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy.
4
Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked.
5
They know not, neither will they understand;
they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course.
6
I have said, Ye are gods;
and all of you are children of the most High.
7
But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.
8
Arise, O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all nations.
