A Plea for JusticeA Psalm of Asaph.
1God ⚓stands in the congregation of the mighty;
He judges among ⚓the gods.
2How long will you judge unjustly,
And ⚓show partiality to the wicked?
3Defend the poor and fatherless;
Do justice to the afflicted and ⚓needy.
4Deliver the poor and needy;
Free them from the hand of the wicked.
5They do not know, nor do they understand;
They walk about in darkness;
All the ⚓foundations of the earth are unstable.
6I said, ⚓“You are gods,
And all of you are children of the Most High.
7But you shall die like men,
And fall like one of the princes.”
8Arise, O God, judge the earth;
⚓For You shall inherit all nations.
