PLXXXII. A Psalm of Asaph

1 The mighty God doth stand within
Th' assembly of the strong
And he it is that righteously
Doth judge the gods among.
2 Give judgment of unrighteousness
How long a time will ye?
Will ye accept the countenance
Of those that wicked be?

3 See that the needy ye defend,
Also the fatherless:
Unto th' afflicted justice do,
And to them in distress.
4 The wasted poor and those that are
In need deliver ye:
And them redeem out of the hand
Of such as wicked be.

5 They know not, nor will understand,
In darkness they walk on.
The earth's foundations all of them
quite out of course are gone.
6 I said that ye were gods, likewise,
Sons of the highest all:
7 But ye shall die like men, and like
One of the princes fall.

8 That thou may'st judge the earth, O God,
Do thou thy self advance:
For thou shalt have the nations all
For thine inheritance.
