Tehillim (Book of Psalms), Chapter 82

'"`UNIQ--named-00000000-QINU`"'1 A Psalm of Asaph. G-d standeth in the congregation of G-d; in the midst of the judges He judgeth:

'"`UNIQ--named-00000001-QINU`"'2 'How long will ye judge unjustly, and respect the persons of the wicked? Selah

'"`UNIQ--named-00000002-QINU`"'3 Judge the poor and fatherless; do justice to the afflicted and destitute.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000003-QINU`"'4 Rescue the poor and needy; deliver them out of the hand of the wicked.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000004-QINU`"'5 They know not, neither do they understand; they go about in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are moved.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000005-QINU`"'6 I said: Ye are godlike beings, and all of you sons of the Most High.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000006-QINU`"'7 Nevertheless ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.'

'"`UNIQ--named-00000007-QINU`"'8 Arise, O G-d, judge the earth; for Thou shalt possess all nations.
