Unjust Judgments Rebuked.
A Psalm of Asaph.
1 God takes His stand R2586 in His F892 own congregation;
He judges R2587 in the midst of the rulers. R2588 F893
2 How long will you judge R2589 unjustly
And show R2590 partiality to the wicked? Selah. F894
3 Vindicate R2591 the weak and fatherless;
Do justice to the afflicted and destitute.
4 Rescue R2592 the weak and needy;
Deliver them out of the hand of the wicked.
5 They do R2593 not know nor do they understand;
They walk R2594 about in darkness;
All the foundations R2595 of the earth are shaken.
6 I F895 said, R2596 "You are gods,
And all of you are sons R2597 of the Most High.
7 "Nevertheless you R2598 will die like men
And fall like any one R2599 of the princes."
8 Arise, R2600 O God, judge R2601 the earth!
For it is You who possesses R2602 all the nations.
F892: Lit caused to bow down
F893: Lit vanity, a mere breath
F894: Lit covered over, atoned for
F895: Lit turned away
