Psalm 82

 

 

A Psalm by Asaph.

STANZA 1.

God stands in the Court of the Judge,

In the midst of the Judges and asks,

"How long will you wrongly decree,

And hold up the face of the bad?

STANZA 2.

"You should act for the orphans and weak,

Do right for the Poor and the GOOD;

Deliver the feeble, poor wretch,

From the hand of the Wicked release,

Who unknown unseen in the darkness, proceed

To remove all the landmarks away.

STANZA 3.

"I had said, that they seem to be Gods,

And all as if Sons of the Highest;

But yet you shall die as did Adam,

And fall, like each one of the Great."

THE ENVOY.

Arise, GOD! Do Justice on Earth,

For you will inherit all Tribes.
