1 God stands in the council of princes;*
he is a Judge among gods.
2 "How long will you give wrong judgment*
and accept the ungodly?
3 Defend the poor and fatherless;*
see that those who are in need and necessity have what is right.
4 Deliver the outcast and poor;*
save them from the hand of the ungodly."
5 They will not learn nor understand, but walk about in darkness;*
all the foundations of the earth are shaken.
6 I have said, "You are gods,*
and you are all the children of the Most High;
7 But you shall die like mortals,*
and fall like one of the princes."
8 Arise, O God, and judge the earth,*
for you shall take all nations for your inheritance.
