1God has taken his place in the divine council;

in the midst of the gods he holds judgment:

2“How long will you judge unjustly

and show partiality to the wicked?   Selah

3Give justice to the weak and the fatherless;

maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute.

4Rescue the weak and the needy;

deliver them from the hand of the wicked.”

5They have neither knowledge nor understanding,

they walk about in darkness;

all the foundations of the earth are shaken.

6I say, “You are gods,

sons of the Most High, all of you;

7nevertheless, you shall die like men,

and fall like any prince.”

8Arise, O God, judge the earth;

for to thee belong all the nations!
