Psalm 82

From Scottish Metrical Psalms 1650

Meter: 8,6,8,6

1    In gods' assembly God doth stand;
       he judgeth gods among.
2    How long, accepting persons vile,
       will ye give judgment wrong?
3    Defend the poor and fatherless;
       to poor oppress'd do right.
4    The poor and needy ones set free;
       rid them from ill men's might.

5    They know not, nor will understand;
       in darkness they walk on:
     All the foundations of the earth
       out of their course are gone.
6    I said that ye are gods, and are
       sons of the Highest all:
7    But ye shall die like men, and as
       one of the princes fall.

8    O God, do thou raise up thyself,
       the earth to judgment call:
     For thou, as thine inheritance,
       shalt take the nations all.
