English Revised Version
God Presides in the Great Assembly
1A Psalm of Asaph. God standeth in the congregation of God; he judgeth among the gods.
2How long will ye judge unjustly, and respect the persons of the wicked? Selah
3Judge the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and destitute.
4Rescue the poor and needy: deliver them out of the hand of the wicked.
5They know not, neither do they understand; they walk to and fro in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are moved.
6I said, Ye are gods, and all of you sons of the Most High.
7Nevertheless ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.
8Arise, O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all the nations.
