Rescue the Weak and Needy

82 A Psalm of lAsaph.

  mGod nhas taken his place in the divine council;

in the midst of pthe gods he qholds judgment:

  “How long will you judge unjustly

and rshow partiality to sthe wicked? Selah

  tGive justice to uthe weak and the fatherless;

vmaintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute.

  wRescue the weak and the needy;

xdeliver them from the hand of the wicked.”

  yThey have neither knowledge nor understanding,

zthey walk about in darkness;

aall the foundations of the earth are bshaken.

  cI said, “You are gods,

sons of the Most High, all of you;

  nevertheless, like men dyou shall die,

and fall like any prince.”1

  eArise, O God, judge the earth;

for you shall finherit all the nations!
