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.

Zabbuli 82

Zabbuli ya Asafu.

1Katonda akubiriza olukiiko lwe olukulu olw’omu ggulu,
    ng’alamula bakatonda.

Mulituusa ddi okusala emisango n’obukuusa,
    nga musalira abanafu?
Abanafu n’abatalina bakitaabwe mubalamulenga mu bwenkanya;
    abaavu n’abanyigirizibwa mubayambenga mu bwenkanya.
Mulwanirire abatalina maanyi n’abali mu kwetaaga, mubawonye;
    mubanunule nga mubaggya mu mikono gy’ababi.

Tebalina kye bamanyi, era tebategeera.
    Batambulira mu kizikiza;
    emisingi gy’ensi gyonna ginyeenyezebwa.

Njogedde nti, Muli bakatonda,
    era mwenna muli baana b’oyo Ali Waggulu Ennyo.
“Naye mugenda kufa ng’abantu obuntu;
    muliggwaawo ng’abafuzi abalala bonna bwe baggwaawo.”

Ogolokoke, Ayi Katonda, olamule ensi;
    kubanga amawanga gonna gago.
