Psalm 82:1-3 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

One of Asaph’s songs of praise.

82 God stands in the assembly of the gods.[a]
    He stands as judge among the judges.
He says, “How long will you judge unfairly
    and show special favors to the wicked?” Selah

“Defend the poor and orphans.
    Protect the rights of the poor.


  1. Psalm 82:1 assembly of the gods Other nations taught that El (God) and the other gods met together to decide what to do with the people on earth. But many times kings and leaders were also called “gods.” So this psalm may be God’s warning to the leaders of Israel.
