Psalmus - caput 81Psalm - chapter 81


1 Psalmus Asaph. Deus stetit in synagoga deorum; in medio autem deos dijudicat.

A psalm for Asaph. God hath stood in the congregation of gods: and being in the midst of them he judgeth gods.

2 Usquequo judicatis iniquitatem, et facies peccatorum sumitis?

How long will you judge unjustly: and accept the persons of the wicked?

3 Judicate egeno et pupillo; humilem et pauperem justificate.

Judge for the needy and fatherless: do justice to the humble and the poor.

4 Eripite pauperem, et egenum de manu peccatoris liberate.

Rescue the poor; and deliver the needy out of the hand of the sinner.

5 Nescierunt, neque intellexerunt; in tenebris ambulant; movebuntur omnia fundamenta terræ.

They have not known nor understood: they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth shall be moved.

6 Ego dixi: Dii estis, et filii Excelsi omnes.

I have said: You are gods and all of you the sons of the most High.

7 Vos autem sicut homines moriemini, et sicut unus de principibus cadetis.

But you like men shall die: and shall fall like one of the princes.

8 Surge, Deus, judica terram, quoniam tu hæreditabis in omnibus gentibus.

Arise, O God, judge thou the earth: for thou shalt inherit among all the nations.
