Psalm 82

Psalm 82

A psalm of Asaph.

God presides over heaven’s court; he pronounces judgment on the heavenly beings:

“How long will you hand down unjust decisions by favoring the wicked?

“Give justice to the poor and the orphan; uphold the rights of the oppressed and the destitute.

Rescue the poor and helpless; deliver them from the grasp of evil people.

But these oppressors know nothing; they are so ignorant! They wander about in darkness, while the whole world is shaken to the core.

I say, ‘You are gods; you are all children of the Most High.

But you will die like mere mortals and fall like every other ruler.’”

Rise up, O God, and judge the earth, for all the nations belong to you.

Love, your servant Garrett
