A Psalm of Asaph
1 The mighty God doth stand within th'assembly of the strong; and he it is that righteously doth judge the gods among. 2 How long a time is it that ye will judge unrighteously? And will accept the countenance of those that wicked be? 3 See that ye do defend the poor also the fatherless; unto the needy justice do and that are in distress. 4 The wasted poor, and those that are needy deliver ye; and them redeem out of the hand of such as wicked be. 5 They know not, nor will understand, in darkness they walk on: all the foundations of the earth quite out of course are gone. 6 I said that ye are gods and sons of th'highest ye are all. 7 But ye shall die like men, and like one of the princes fall. 8 That thou mayst judge the earth, O God, do thou thy self advance; for thou shalt have the nations for thine inheritance.
