Psalm 82 is the 82nd psalm in the biblical Book of Psalms, subtitled “A Psalm of Asaph”. God is stationing himself in the assembly of the Divine One; in the middle of the gods he judges. In the Greek Septuagint version of the Bible, and in its Latin translation in the Vulgate, this Psalm is in a slightly different numbering system.”Festival Psalm”. The festival was at the time of the grape harvest. They called it “the festival of tents.” Tents were houses made of animal skins. As was mentioned in past Psalms. At the festival of tents the Jews lived for a week in tents. This taught them how they lived when God took them out of Egypt, hundreds of years before. Sing out loud to God of our joy and strength. Let’s go back to where it reads in Psalm 82:1-8 NIV:{A psalm of Asaph.} God presides in the great assembly; he renders judgment among the “gods”: “How long will you defend the unjust and show partiality to the wicked? Defend the weak and the fatherless; uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked. “The ‘gods’ know nothing, they understand nothing. They walk about in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are shaken. “I said, ‘You are “gods”; you are all sons of the Most High.’ But you will die like mere mortals; you will fall like every other ruler.” Rise up, O God, judge the earth, for all the nations are your inheritance.
