A psalm of Asaph. 1
God presides over heaven's court;
he pronounces judgment on the heavenly beings:
"How long will you hand down unjust decisions
by favoring the wicked? Interlude
"Give justice to the poor and the orphan; uphold the rights of the oppressed and the destitute."
Rescue the poor and helpless; deliver them from the grasp of evil people.
But these oppressors know nothing;
they are so ignorant!
They wander about in darkness,
while the whole world is shaken to the core.
I say, `You are gods;
you are all children of the Most High.
But you will die like mere mortals
and fall like every other ruler.'"
Rise up, O God, and judge the earth,
for all the nations belong to you.
