Be wise

Be warned, O Jerusalem, lest I be alienated from you; lest I make you a desolation, an uninhabited land."

Psalm 82:1-8
1
A Psalm of Asaph.
2
God has taken his place in the divine council; in the midst of the gods he holds judgment:
3
"How long will you judge unjustly and show partiality to the wicked? [Selah]
4
Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute.
5
Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked."
6
They have neither knowledge nor understanding, they walk about in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are shaken.
7
I say, "You are gods, sons of the Most High, all of you;
8
nevertheless, you shall die like men, and fall like any prince." [ (Psalms 82:9) Arise, O God, judge the earth; for to thee belong all the nations! ]
