1 God takes his stand in the divine assembly; among the divine beings he renders judgment: 2 "How long will you judge partially by showing favor on the wicked? Interlude 3 "Defend the poor and the fatherless. Vindicate the afflicted and the poor. 4 Rescue the poor and the needy, delivering them from the power of the wicked.
5 They neither know nor understand; they walk about in the dark while all the foundations of the earth are shaken.
6 "Indeed I said, "You are gods, and all of you are sons of the Most High. 7 However, as all human beings do, you will die, and like other rulers, you will fall.' 8 Arise, God, to judge the earth, for all nations belong to you. A song. A Psalm of Asaph
