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.

詩篇 82

斥責不公正的審判

亞薩的詩。

1上帝站在天庭的會中,
向眾神明宣佈祂的判決,
說:「你們不秉公行義,
偏袒惡人要到何時呢?(細拉)
你們要為窮人和孤兒主持公道,
為貧寒和受壓迫的人伸張正義。
要救助窮苦的人,
使他們脫離惡人的欺壓。
你們愚昧無知,
行在黑暗中,
大地的根基搖動。
我曾說你們都是神,
都是至高者的兒子,
但你們要跟世人一樣死去,
像人間的王侯一樣滅亡。」
上帝啊,求你起來審判世界,
因為世上的萬國都屬於你。
