Bay Psalm Book: Psalm 82

A psalm of Asaph.

1 THe mighty God doth stand within

th' assembly of the strong:

and he it is that righteously

doth judge the gods among.

2 How long a time is it that ye

will judge unrighteously?

and will accept the countenance

of those that wicked be?

3 See that ye do defend the poor,

also the fatherless:

unto the needy justice do,

and that are in distress.

4 The wasted poor, and those that are

needy deliver ye;

and them redeem out of the hand

of such as wicked be.

5 They know not, nor will understand,

in darkness they walk on:

all the foundations of the earth

quite out of the course are gone.

6 I said that ye are gods, and sons

of th’ highest ye are all.

7 But ye shall dye like men, and like

one of the princes fall.

8 That thou may’st judge the earth o God,

do thou thy self advance;

for thou shalt have the nations

for thine inheritance.
