The third book of Psalms, song 82, New English Translation

Psalm 82

   A psalm of Asaph.
   1 God stands in the assembly of El; in the midst of the gods he renders judgment.
   2 He says, "How long will you make unjust legal decisions and show favoritism to the wicked? (Selah)
   3 Defend the cause of the poor and the fatherless! Vindicate the oppressed and suffering!
   4 Rescue the poor and needy! Deliver them from the power of the wicked!
   5 They neither know nor understand. They stumble around in the dark, while all the foundations of the earth crumble.
   6 I thought, 'You are gods; all of you are sons of the Most High. aaa'
   7 Yet you will die like mortals; you will fall like all the other rulers."
   8 Rise up, O God, and execute judgment on the earth! For you own all the nations.
