Enough! You’ve Corrupted Justice Long Enough

An Asaph Psalm

1 God calls the judges into His courtroon, He puts all the judges in the dock.

2 “Enough! You’ve corrupted justice long enough, you’ve let the wicked get away with #murder.

3 You’re here to #defend the #defendless, to make sure that #underdogs get a fair break;

4 Your job is to #stand up for the #powerless, and #prosecute all those who exploit them.”

5 Ignorant judges! Head-in-the-sand judges! They haven’t a clue to what’s going on. And now everything’s falling apart, the world’s coming unglued.

6 I commissioned you judges, each one of you, deputies of the #High-God,

7 But you’ve #betrayed your #commission and now you’re #stripped of your rank #busted.”

8 O God, give them their just #deserts! You’ve got the whole world in your hands!

Psalm 82:1-8 from Bible The Message version.
