Psalm 82:3
Context
God Presides in the Great Assembly

1God stands in the congregation of the mighty; he judges among the gods. 2How long will you judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked? Selah. 3Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy. 4Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked. 5They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course. 6I have said, You are gods; and all of you are children of the most High. 7But you shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes. 8Arise, O God, judge the earth: for you shall inherit all nations.
