Yom Shlishi – Day 3 – Tuesday
A psalm of Asaph.
God stands in the Divine assembly. Among the judges He delivers judgment.
How long will you judge unjustly, showing favor to th wicked? Selah.
Do justice to the weak and the orphaned. Vindicate the poor and destitute.
Rescue the weak and needy. Save them from the hand of the wicked.
They do not know nor do they understand.
They walk about in darkness while all the earth’s foundations shake.
I once said, “You are like gods, all of you are sons of the Most High.”
But you shall die like mere men, you will fall like any prince.
Arise O Lord, judge the earth. for all the nations are Your possession.
“A judge who delivers a true judgment becomes a partner of thre Most Holy One,
blessed be He, in the work of Creation.” (Shabbat 103)
