A psalm of Asaph.

1 Elohim stands in the congregation of the mighty;
He judges in the midst of the mighty ones.

2 How long would you judge perversely,
And show partiality to the wicked? Selah.

3 Give right-ruling to the poor and fatherless,
Do right to the afflicted and needy.

4 Rescue the poor and needy;
Deliver them from the hand of the wicked.

5 They do not know, nor do they understand,
They walk about in darkness.
All the foundations of the earth are shaken.

6 I, I said, “You are Elohim,
And all of you are sons of the Most High.

7 “But as men you die,
And fall as one of the heads.”

8 Arise, O Elohim, judge the earth,
For You shall possess all the nations.
