Psalm 82
The Scriptures (ISR 1998)

1Elohim stands in the congregation of Ěl; He judges in the midst of the elohim.

2How long would you judge perversely, And show partiality to the wrong? Selah.

3Give right-ruling to the poor and fatherless, Do right to the afflicted and needy.

4Rescue the poor and needy; Deliver them from the hand of the wrong.

5They do not know, nor do they understand, They walk about in darkness. All the foundations of the earth are shaken.

6I, I said, “You are elohim, And all of you are sons of the Most High.

7“But as men you die, And fall as one of the heads.”

8Arise, O Elohim, judge the earth, For You shall possess all the nations.
