God stands in the council of princes; *
he is a Judge among gods.
“How long will you give wrong judgment *
and accept the ungodly?
Defend the poor and fatherless; *
see that those who are in need and necessity have what is right.
Deliver the outcast and poor; *
save them from the hand of the ungodly.”
They will not learn nor understand, but walk about in darkness; *
all the foundations of the earth are shaken.
I have said, “You are gods, *
and you are all the children of the Most High;
But you shall die like mortals, *
and fall like one of the princes.”
Arise, O God, and judge the earth, *
for you shall take all nations for your inheritance.
