Psalms Chapter 82



1 (A Psalm of Asaph.) God standeth in the congregation of the mighty; he judgeth among the gods.

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; and all of you are children of the most High.

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

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

there's only one god - but the term 'god' sounds like it's being used facetiously in regards to the powerful who take themselves too seriously, yet at the same time doing nothing with their power to help the needy. (Kim Jong Un, i'm looking at you). The other Kim's are dead, incidently. The super rich/powerful's biggest fear is losing their riches/power( hence their perceived godhood)

This psalm was quoted by Jesus in John 10:34 specifically indicating that reborn Christians, being the sons of God are gods and it comes with the responsibilities listed in verse 3 and 4.
It warns us not to remain in darkness but to open our eyes to what our new purpose is and that as Christians we should be world changers by the love and power of our Most High Father and God.
