Amplified Bible

Psalm 82

Unjust Judgments Rebuked.

A Psalm of Asaph.

1God stands in the divine assembly;
He judges among the gods (divine beings).

How long will you judge unjustly
And show partiality to the wicked? Selah.

Vindicate the weak and fatherless;
Do justice and maintain the rights of the afflicted and destitute.

Rescue the weak and needy;
Rescue them from the hand of the wicked.


The rulers do not know nor do they understand;
They walk on in the darkness [of complacent satisfaction];
All the foundations of the earth [the fundamental principles of the administration of justice] are shaken.

I said, “You are [a]gods;
Indeed, all of you are sons of the Most High.

“Nevertheless you will die like men
And fall like any one of the princes.”

Arise, O God, judge the earth!
For to You belong all the nations.

Notas al pie

  1. Psalm 82:6 Most of the ancient rabbis understood the idea of “gods” referring to judges, but some applied vv 6, 7 to the Israelites at Sinai and maintained that they would have become immortal as a result of accepting the Law, if only they had not committed the sin of the golden calf.

诗篇 82

斥责不公正的审判

亚萨的诗。

1上帝站在天庭的会中,
向众神明宣布祂的判决,
说:“你们不秉公行义,
偏袒恶人要到何时呢?(细拉)
你们要为穷人和孤儿主持公道,
为贫寒和受压迫的人伸张正义。
要救助穷苦的人,
使他们脱离恶人的欺压。
你们愚昧无知,
行在黑暗中,
大地的根基摇动。
我曾说你们都是神,
都是至高者的儿子,
但你们要跟世人一样死去,
像人间的王侯一样灭亡。”
上帝啊,求你起来审判世界,
因为世上的万国都属于你。
