Psalm 82

     God himself stands over all human authority on earth and yet we see those authority figures defending the unjust, showing partiality to the wicked, causing the very foundations of society to be unstable. Rise up, O God! Judge the earth! Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless, the poor and oppressed. Rescue the weak and needy; deliver them from the wicked.

     The authority of the wicked is exercised with no care for the needy. Cause them to see the error of their ways, O God! Cause them to understand they rule at your pleasure and must do it with justice, loving mercy and walking humbly with you.

     Demonstrate your power, O Elohim, Judge of the earth and inheritor of all nations!
