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?
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.
