Mission of St. Clare logo Psalm 82 Deus stetit

God standeth in the congregation of princes;
he is a Judge among gods.

How long will ye give wrong judgement, and accept the persons of the ungodly? Defend the poor and fatherless;
see that such as are in need and necessity have right.

Deliver the outcast and poor;
save them from the hand of the ungodly.

They will not be learned nor understand, but walk on still in darkness;
all the foundations of the earth are out of course.

I have said, Ye are gods, and ye are all the children of the Most Highest.

But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.

Arise, O God, and judge thou the earth;
for thou shalt take all heathen to thine inheritance.
