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