Psalm 82                                                                                                    Monday Morning 4

God presides over the divine assembly; * in their midst he judges the gods:

    “How long will you defend the unjust, * and show partiality to the wicked?

    Defend the weak and the orphan; * give justice to the afflicted and the poor.

    Rescue the weak and the needy; * from the hand of the wicked free them.”

    Without knowledge or understanding * they wander in darkness; * all earth's foundations are shaken.

    I had thought, “You are gods, * all of you sons of the Most High.

    Yet like men you shall die, * and fall like any prince.”

Arise, God, govern the earth; * rule all the nations yourself.
