A psalm of Asaph.
  1God presides in the great assembly;
   he renders judgment among the “gods”:

  2“How long will you defend the unjust
   and show partiality to the wicked?
  3Defend the weak and the fatherless;
   uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed.
  4Rescue the weak and the needy;
   deliver them from the hand of the wicked.

  5“The ‘gods’ know nothing, they understand nothing.
   They walk about in darkness;
   all the foundations of the earth are shaken.

  6“I said, ‘You are “gods”;
   you are all sons of the Most High.’
  7But you will die like mere mortals;
   you will fall like every other ruler.”

  8Rise up, O God, judge the earth,
   for all the nations are your inheritance.
