The Book of Psalms

Psalm 81

Deus stetit.

An exhortation to judges and men in power.


1
A psalm for Asaph. God hath stood in the congregation of gods: and being in the midst of them he judgeth gods.

2
How long will you judge unjustly: and accept the persons of the wicked?

3
Judge for the needy and fatherless: do justice to the humble and the poor.

4
Rescue the poor; and deliver the needy out of the hand of the sinner.

5
They have not known nor understood: they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth shall be moved.

6
I have said: You are gods and all of you the sons of the most High.

7
But you like men shall die: and shall fall like one of the princes.

8
Arise, O God, judge thou the earth: for thou shalt inherit among all the nations.
