    PSALM 82

    Ps 82:1-8. Before the great Judge, the judges of the earth are rebuked, exhorted, and threatened.

    1. congregation--(Compare Ex 12:3; 16:1).
    - of the mighty--that is, of God, of His appointment.
    - the gods--or, "judges" (Ex 21:6; 22:9), God's representatives.

    2. accept the persons--literally, "lift up the faces," that is, from dejection, or admit to favor and communion, regardless of merit (Le 19:15; Pr 18:5).

    3, 4. So must good judges act (Ps 10:14; Job 29:12).

    4. poor and needy--(Compare Ps 34:10; 41:1).

    5. By the wilful ignorance and negligence of judges, anarchy ensues (Ps 11:3; 75:3).
    - out of course--(Compare Margin; Ps 9:6; 62:2).

    6, 7. Though God admitted their official dignity (Joh 10:34), He reminds them of their mortality.

    7. fall like, &c.--be cut off suddenly (Ps 20:8; 91:7).

    8. As rightful sovereign of earth, God is invoked personally to correct the evils of His representatives.
