Unjust Judgments Rebuked.
A Psalm of Asaph.
God takes His stand in [a]His own congregation;
He judges in the midst of the [b]rulers.
How long will you judge unjustly
And show partiality to the wicked? [c]Selah.
Vindicate the weak and fatherless;
Do justice to the afflicted and destitute.
Rescue the weak and needy;
Deliver them out of the hand of the wicked.
They do not know nor do they understand;
They walk about in darkness;
All the foundations of the earth are shaken.
[d]I said, “You are gods,
And 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 it is You who possesses all the nations.
