Deus stetit. An exhortation to judges and men in power.
1 A psalm for Asaph. God hath stood in the congregation of gods: and being in the midst of them he judgeth gods.
Psalmus Asaph. Deus stetit in synagoga deorum; in medio autem deos dijudicat.
2 How long will you judge unjustly: and accept the persons of the wicked?
Usquequo judicatis iniquitatem, et facies peccatorum sumitis?
3 Judge for the needy and fatherless: do justice to the humble and the poor.
Judicate egeno et pupillo; humilem et pauperem justificate.
4 Rescue the poor; and deliver the needy out of the hand of the sinner.
Eripite pauperem, et egenum de manu peccatoris liberate.
5 They have not known nor understood: they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth shall be moved.
Nescierunt, neque intellexerunt; in tenebris ambulant; movebuntur omnia fundamenta terrae.
6 I have said: You are gods and all of you the sons of the most High.
Ego dixi : Dii estis, et filii Excelsi omnes.
7 But you like men shall die: and shall fall like one of the princes.
Vos autem sicut homines moriemini, et sicut unus de principibus cadetis.
8 Arise, O God, judge thou the earth: for thou shalt inherit among all the nations.
Surge, Deus, judica terram, quoniam tu haereditabis in omnibus gentibus.
