1 {A Psalm of Asaph.} God standeth in the assembly of God, he judgeth among the gods. 2 How long will ye judge unrighteously, and accept the person of the wicked? Selah. 3 Judge the poor and the fatherless, do justice to the afflicted and the destitute; 4 Rescue the poor and needy, deliver them out of the hand of the wicked.
5 They know not, neither do they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are moved.
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 the nations.
