God presides in the great assembly; he renders judgment among the “gods”:
2 “How long will you defend the unjust and show partiality to the wicked?
All things are in the Mind of God and are Good.
3 Defend the weak and the fatherless; uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed.
Defends our innocence
4Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.
Wickedness, an invention of the mortal, with no basis of reality: nonexistent.
5 “The ‘gods’ know nothing, they understand nothing. They walk about in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are shaken.
6 “I said, ‘You are “gods”; you are all sons of the Most High.’
7 But you will die like mere mortals; you will fall like every other ruler.”
One God, one truth, what gods are in my mortal view?
8 Rise up, O God, judge the earth, for all the nations are your inheritance.
Love probes and examines things before they are consimed in its yearning.
