A Plea For Righteous Judgment

11 God takes His stand in His own congregation; He judges in the midst of the rulers.

11 {A Psalm of Asaph.} God standeth in the congregation of the mighty; he judgeth among the gods.

11 God has taken His place in the divine assembly; He judges among the gods:

11 God takes his stand in the divine assembly; among the divine beings he renders judgment:

11 God stands in the assembly [of the representatives] of God; in the midst of the magistrates or judges He gives judgment [as] among the gods.

22 How long will you judge unjustly And show partiality to the wicked? Selah.

22 How long will ye judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked? Selah.

22 "How long will you judge unjustly and show partiality to the wicked? Selah

22 "How long will you judge partially by showing favor on the wicked? Interlude

22 How long will you [magistrates or judges] judge unjustly and show partiality to the wicked? Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

33 Vindicate the weak and fatherless; Do justice to the afflicted and destitute.

33 Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy.

33 "Defend the poor and the fatherless. Vindicate the afflicted and the poor.

44 Rescue the weak and needy; Deliver them out of the hand of the wicked.

44 Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked.

44 Rescue the poor and needy; save them from the hand of the wicked."

44 Rescue the poor and the needy, delivering them from the power of the wicked.

44 Deliver the poor and needy; rescue them out of the hand of the wicked.

55 They do not know nor do they understand; They walk about in darkness; All the foundations of the earth are shaken.

55 They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course.

55 They do not know or understand; they wander in darkness. All the foundations of the earth are shaken.

55 They neither know nor understand; they walk about in the dark while all the foundations of the earth are shaken.

55 [The magistrates and judges] know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in the darkness [of complacent satisfaction]; all the foundations of the earth [the fundamental principles upon which rests the administration of justice] are shaking.

66 I said, "You are gods, And all of you are sons of the Most High.

66 I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.

66 I said, "You are gods; you are all sons of the Most High.

66 "Indeed I said, "You are gods, and all of you are sons of the Most High.

66 I said, You are gods [since you judge on My behalf, as My representatives]; indeed, all of you are children of the Most High.

77 "Nevertheless you will die like men And fall like any one of the princes."

77 But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.

77 However, you will die like men and fall like any other ruler."

77 However, as all human beings do, you will die, and like other rulers, you will fall.'

77 But you shall die as men and fall as one of the princes.
