Psalm 82

Words: The Scottish Psalter

Common Metre Tunes

A Psalm of Asaph.

   1  In gods' assembly God doth stand;
         he judgeth gods among.
   2  How long, accepting persons vile,
         will ye give judgment wrong?
   3  Defend the poor and fatherless;
         to poor oppressed do right.
   4  The poor and needy ones set free;
         rid them from ill men's might.
   5  They know not, nor will understand;
         in darkness they walk on:
      All the foundations of the earth
         out of their course are gone.
   6  I said that ye are gods, and are
         sons of the Highest all:
   7  But ye shall die like men, and as
         one of the princes fall.
   8  O God, do thou raise up thyself,
         the earth to judgment call:
      For thou, as thine inheritance,
         shalt take the nations all.
