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.

Salmos 82

Salmo de Asaf.

1Dios preside el consejo celestial;
    entre los dioses dicta sentencia:

«¿Hasta cuándo defenderéis la injusticia
    y favoreceréis a los impíos? Selah
Defended la causa del huérfano y del desvalido;
    al pobre y al oprimido hacedles justicia.
Salvad al menesteroso y al necesitado;
    libradlos de la mano de los impíos.

»Ellos no saben nada, no entienden nada.
    Deambulan en la oscuridad;
    se estremecen todos los cimientos de la tierra.

»Yo les he dicho: “Vosotros sois dioses;
    todos vosotros sois hijos del Altísimo”.
Pero moriréis como cualquier mortal;
    caeréis como cualquier otro gobernante».

Levántate, oh Dios, y juzga a la tierra,
    pues tuyas son todas las naciones.
