1 A Psalm by Asaph.God presides in the great assembly.He judges among the gods.

2 "How long will you judge unjustly,and show partiality to the wicked?"Selah.

3 "Defend the weak, the poor, and the fatherless.Maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed.

4 Rescue the weak and needy.Deliver them out of the hand of the wicked."

5 They do not know, neither do they understand.They walk back and forth in darkness.All the foundations of the earth are shaken.

6 I said, "You are gods,all of you are sons of the Most High.

7 Nevertheless you shall die like men,and fall like one of the rulers."

8 Arise, God, judge the earth,for you inherit all of the nations.
