(A psalm by Asaph.) Please Do Something, God! 82 1When all the other gods[P] have come together, the Lord God judges them and says: 2“How long will you keep judging unfairly and favoring evil people? 3Be fair to the poor and to orphans. Defend the helpless and everyone in need. 4Rescue the weak and homeless from the powerful hands of heartless people. 5“None of you know or understand a thing. You live in darkness, while the foundations of the earth tremble.[Q] 6 “I, the Most High God, say that all of you are gods[R] and also my own children. 7But you will die, just like everyone else, including powerful rulers.” 8Do something, God! Judge the nations of the earth; they belong to you.
