Metaphysical Bible Interpretation of Psalms Chapter 82

Metaphysically Interpreting Psalms 82:1-8

A Psalm of Asaph.

82:1God standeth in the congregation of God;
    He judgeth among the gods.

82:2How long will ye judge unjustly,
    And respect the persons of the wicked?

Selah

82:3Judge the poor and fatherless:
    Do justice to the afflicted and destitute.

82:4Rescue the poor and needy:
    Deliver them out of the hand of the wicked.

82:5They know not, neither do they understand;
    They walk to and fro in darkness:
    All the foundations of the earth are shaken.

82:6I said, Ye are gods,
    And all of you sons of the Most High.

82:7Nevertheless ye shall die like men,
    And fall like one of the princes.

82:8Arise, O God, judge the earth;
    For thou shalt inherit all the nations.

September 4, 1949: Psalms 82:1-8

How is divine justice dispensed? Impartially to all.

82:1God standeth in the congregation of God;
    He judgeth among the gods.

Neither high nor low are exempt from divine justice, which each one receives according to his deserts.

In what cases is justice most urgently needed? In helping the “poor and fatherless,” “the afflicted and destitute,” “the poor and needy.”

What is meant by “gods” in the verse “Ye are gods, And all of you sons of the Most High”? Men (made in the image and likeness of God) are gods because they are potentially all that God is. But, until they realize and demonstrate their divine sonship, they shall die like men.

Is justice or judgment to be universally established? It is. “Arise, O God, judge the earth; For thou shalt inherit all the nations.”
