God has stood up in the council of heaven :
in the midst of the gods he gives judgement.
How long will you judge unjustly :
and favour the cause of the wicked?
Judge for the poor and fatherless :
vindicate the afflicted and oppressed.
Rescue the poor and needy :
and save them from the hands of the wicked.
They do not know, they do not understand,
they walk about in darkness :
all the foundations of the earth are shaken.
Therefore I say, Though you are gods :
and all of you sons of the Most High,
Nevertheless you shall die like man :
and fall like one of the princes.
Arise, O God, and judge the earth :
for you shall take all nations as your possession.
