Psalm 82:1-3 The Voice (VOICE)

Psalm 82

A song of Asaph.

Psalm 82 provides an image of a heavenly scene in which God accuses His heavenly messengers of not caring for the poor and pursuing justice.

The True God stands to preside over the heavenly council.
    He pronounces judgment on the so-called gods.
He asks: “How long will you judge dishonestly
    and be partial to the wicked?”

[pause][a]

“Stand up for the poor and the orphan;
    advocate for the rights of the afflicted and those in need.
