Psalm 82 reimagined

A psalm written by Asaph.

  1. The Creator is the president of the Courts of Justice for the whole of creation, both the areas we see and those we don’t.
  2. He / she asks those in power, “Why is it that your decisions favour the powerful and oppressors?  Why are your rulings unfair?”


  1. He / she gives them the following guidelines: “Be fair to those who are destitute and parentless; give full rights to those who are downtrodden and impoverished.
  2. Liberate the disadvantaged and vulnerable from the control of the malicious and corrupt.
  3. These tyrants are foolish and oblivious to the consequences of their actions.  While they blindly carry on, the whole world is in uproar from the resulting chaos.
  4. They describe themselves as children of the Creator, the Greatest-of-all-Time.  
  5. However, they are exactly like every other person – they too will die, and their powerbase will crumble.”
  1. Put on your gown, Creator and take you seat in the court.  Pronounce judgement on the earth, for the whole world needs your justice.
