God will judge (Ps 82:6-82:8)

“I say.

‘You are gods.

You are children of the Most High.

All of you are gods.

Nevertheless,

You shall die like mortals.

You will fall like any prince.’

Arise!

O God!

Judge the earth!

All the nations belong to you!”

The temple prophet uses the words of God. He told the various other gods and world leaders that they were gods since they were children of the Most High God. However, they would all die like mortals and other earthly princes. Finally the psalm ends with the cry for God to arise and judge the earth since all nations belonged to God anyway.
