For Sunday: Psalm 82

Psalm 82

A Plea for Justice

A Psalm of Asaph.

1 God has taken his place in the divine council;
in the midst of the gods he holds judgement:

2 ‘How long will you judge unjustly
and show partiality to the wicked?

3 Give justice to the weak and the orphan;
maintain the right of the lowly and the destitute.

4 Rescue the weak and the needy;
deliver them from the hand of the wicked.’

8 Rise up, O God, judge the earth;
for all the nations belong to you!

(New Revised Standard Version)
