God Presides in the Divine Assembly
A Psalm of Asaph.
1God presides in the divine assembly;
He renders judgment among the gods:
and show partiality to the wicked?
3 Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless;
uphold the rights of the afflicted and oppressed.
4 Rescue the weak and needy;
save them from the hand of the wicked.
5 They do not know or understand;
they wander in the darkness;
6 I have said, ‘You are gods;
you are all sons of the Most High.’ b
7 But like mortals you will die,
and like rulers you will fall.”
8 Arise, O God, judge the earth,
for all the nations are Your inheritance.
