Why does it have strange spelling?
1 The Psalmist hauing exhorted the Iudges, 5 and reproued their negligence, 8 prayeth God to iudge.
Iudges are gods.
[A Psalme of Asaph.] God standeth in the Congregation of the mightie: hee iudgeth among the gods.
How long will yee iudge vniustly: and accept the persons of the wicked? Selah.2
Defend the poore and fatherlesse: doe iustice to the afflicted and needie.3
Deliuer the poore and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked.4
They know not, neither wil they vnderstand; they walke on in darknes: all the foundations of the earth are out of course.5
I haue said, Ye are gods: and all of you are children of the most High:6
But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the Princes.
Arise, O God, iudge the earth: for thou shalt inherite all nations.
