Psalm 82

Psalm 82

A psalm of Asaph.

God takes his place at the head of a large gathering of leaders.
    He announces his decisions among them.

He says, “How long will you stand up for those who aren’t fair to others?
    How long will you show mercy to sinful people?
Stand up for the weak and for children whose fathers have died.
    Protect the rights of people who are poor or treated badly.
Save those who are weak and needy.
    Save them from the power of sinful people.

“You leaders don’t know anything.
    You don’t understand anything.
You are in the dark about what is right.
    Law and order have been destroyed all over the world.

“I said, ‘You leaders are like gods.
    You are all children of the Most High God.’
But you will die, like mere human beings.
    You will die like every other leader.”

God, rise up. Judge the earth.
    All the nations belong to you.

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。
