1 {A Psalm of Asaph} God standeth in the congregation of princes, and is a Judge among the judges. 2 How long will ye give wrong judgment, and accept the persons of the ungodly? Selah. 3 Defend the poor and fatherless, see that such as be in need and necessity have right. 4 Deliver the outcast and poor, and save them from the hand of the ungodly.
5 They will not be learned nor understand, but walk on still in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are out of course.
6 I have said, "Ye are gods, and ye are all the children of the most highest. 7 But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the tyrants." 8 Arise, O God, and judge thou the earth, for thou shalt take all heathen to thine inheritance.
