From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Psalm 82 (Greek numbering: Psalm 81) 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.
- Psalm 82 is the psalm of the day in the Shir Shel Yom on Tuesday.
- It is recited on Hoshana Rabbah.
- Verse 1 is part of Mishnah Tamid 7:4  and is found in Pirkei Avot Chapter 3, no. 7.
- Jesus quotes verse six in John 10:34: I said, "You are gods". Jesus uses this text to assert that he is not blaspheming when he calls himself the Son of God. The second part of verse 6: All of you are sons of the Most High does not appear in the text quoted by John. Quoting Bishop Westcott, the Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges says of this text:
- "The fact that it was possible for men so to represent God as to be called gods or divine was a foreshadowing of the Incarnation. 'There lay already in the Law the germ of the truth which Christ announced, the union of God and man'.”
