Psalm 82

 
Deus stetit
 

God standeth in the congregation of princes; he is a Judge among gods. How long will ye give wrong judgement, and accept the persons of the ungodly? Defend the poor and fatherless; see that such as are in need and necessity have right. Deliver the outcast and poor; save them from the hand of the ungodly.

They will not be learned nor understand, but walk on still in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are out of course. I have said, Ye are gods, and ye are all the children of the Most Highest. But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.

Arise, O God, and judge thou the earth; for thou shalt take all heathen to thine inheritance.
