Unjust Judgments Rebuked.

1 A Psalm of Asaph.
God takes His (A)stand in (a)His own congregation;
He (B)judges in the midst of the (b)(C)rulers.
How long will you (D)judge unjustly
And (E)show partiality to the wicked? (c)Selah.
(F)Vindicate the weak and fatherless;
Do justice to the afflicted and destitute.
(G)Rescue the weak and needy;
Deliver them out of the hand of the wicked.
They (H)do not know nor do they understand;
They (I)walk about in darkness;
All the (J)foundations of the earth are shaken.
(d)I (K)said, “You are gods,
And all of you are (L)sons of the Most High.
“Nevertheless (M)you will die like men
And fall like any (N)one of the princes.”
(O)Arise, O God, (P)judge the earth!
For it is You who (Q)possesses all the nations.
