PSALMS 82


1 (A Psalm of Asaph.)

Elohim standeth in the congregation of El; he judgeth among the gods [Elohim].

2 How long will ye judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked? Selah.

3 Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy.

4 Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked.

5 They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course.

6 I have said, Ye are gods [Elohim]; and all of you are children of the most High.

Elohim is a name bestowed on angels and orders of men...Those to whom the word of God came through Moses are styled Elohim.

Elpis Israel 1.6.

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

8 Arise, O Elohim, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all nations.
