82:1God standeth in the congregation of the mighty; he judgeth among the gods.
82:2How long will ye judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked? Selah.
82:3Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy.
82:4Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked.
82:5They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course.
82:6I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.
82:7But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.
82:8Arise, O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all nations.
83:1Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.
83:2For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.
83:3They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.
83:4They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.
83:5For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee:
83:6The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes;
83:7Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre;
83:8Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah.
83:9Do unto them as unto the Midianites; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook of Kison:
83:10Which perished at Endor: they became as dung for the earth.
83:11Make their nobles like Oreb, and like Zeeb: yea, all their princes as Zebah, and as Zalmunna:
83:12Who said, Let us take to ourselves the houses of God in possession.
83:13O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind.
83:14As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire;
83:15So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid with thy storm.
83:16Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O LORD.
83:17Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish:
83:18That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth.
84:1How amiable are thy tabernacles, O LORD of hosts!
84:2My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the LORD: my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God.
84:3Yea, the sparrow hath found an house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, even thine altars, O LORD of hosts, my King, and my God.
84:4Blessed are they that dwell in thy house: they will be still praising thee. Selah.
84:5Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee; in whose heart are the ways of them.
84:6Who passing through the valley of Baca make it a well; the rain also filleth the pools.
84:7They go from strength to strength, every one of them in Zion appeareth before God.
84:8O LORD God of hosts, hear my prayer: give ear, O God of Jacob. Selah.
84:9Behold, O God our shield, and look upon the face of thine anointed.
84:10For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.
84:11For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.
84:12O LORD of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth in thee.
