 Old Testament in Greek (Septuagint) ΨΑΛΜΟΙ: The Septuagint in English (Brenton)

1 Ψαλμὸς τῷ Ασαφ.

Ὁ θεὸς ἔστη ἐν συναγωγῇ θεῶν,
ἐν μέσῳ δὲ θεοὺς διακρίνει

Against corrupt Judges. Psalm 82(v81)Against corrupt Judges. Psalm 82(v81)A Psalm for Asaph.
God stands in the assembly of gods;
and in the midst [of them] will judge gods.
2 Ἕως πότε κρίνετε ἀδικίαν,
καὶ πρόσωπα ἁμαρτωλῶν λαμβάνετε;
διάψαλμα.
  How long will you judge unrighteously,
and accept the persons of sinners?
Pause.
3 κρίνατε ὀρφανὸν καὶ πτωχόν,
ταπεινὸν καὶ πένητα δικαιώσατε·
  Judge the orphan and poor:
do justice to the low and needy.
4 ἐξέλεσθε πένητα καὶ πτωχόν,
ἐκ χειρὸς ἁμαρτωλοῦ ῥύσασθε.
  Rescue the needy,
and deliver the poor out of the hand of the sinner.
5 οὐκ ἔγνωσαν οὐδὲ συνῆκαν,
ἐν σκότει διαπορεύονται·
σαλευθήσονται πάντα τὰ θεμέλια τῆς γῆς.
  They know not, nor understand;
they walk on in darkness:
all the foundations of the earth shall be shaken.
6 ἐγὼ εἶπα Θεοί ἐστε καὶ υἱοὶ ὑψίστου πάντες·
  I have said, Ye are gods; and all [of you] children of the Most High.
7 ὑμεῖς δὲ ὡς ἄνθρωποι ἀποθνῄσκετε,
καὶ ὡς εἷς τῶν ἀρχόντων πίπτετε.
  But you die as men,
and fall as one of the princes.
8 ἀνάστα, ὁ θεός, κρῖνον τὴν γῆν,
ὅτι σὺ κατακληρονομήσεις ἐν πᾶσιν τοῖς ἔθνεσιν.
  Arise, O God, judge the earth:
for you shall inherit all nations.
