Psalm 82. Deus stetit.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Contemporary - Sixteenth Day - Evening Prayer.
  1. God takes his stand in the council of heaven; *
    he gives judgment in the midst of the gods:
  2. "How long will you judge unjustly, *
    and show favor to the wicked?
  3. Save the weak and the orphan; *
    defend the humble and needy;
  4. Rescue the weak and the poor; *
    deliver them from the power of the wicked.
  5. They do not know, neither do they understand; they go about in darkness; *
    all the foundations of the earth are shaken.
  6. Now I say to you, 'You are gods, *
    and all of you children of the Most High;
  7. Nevertheless, you shall die like mortals, *
    and fall like any prince.' "
  8. Arise, O God, and rule the earth, *
    for you shall take all nations for your own.
