Psalm 82

A psalm of Asaph.

God presides in the great assembly;
he renders judgment among the “gods”:

“How long will you defend the unjust
and show partiality to the wicked?
Defend the weak and the fatherless;
uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed.
Rescue the weak and the needy;
deliver them from the hand of the wicked.

“The ‘gods’ know nothing, they understand nothing.
They walk about in darkness;
all the foundations of the earth are shaken.

“I said, ‘You are “gods”;
you are all sons of the Most High.’
But you will die like mere mortals;
you will fall like every other ruler.”

Rise up, O God, judge the earth,
for all the nations are your inheritance.

Jesus, in whom God's spirit dwelt in its fullness, had to die like a mortal, yet defeated death, so that we do not have to taste of it. Yet it seems he never walked about in... show more Someone who cares: Yes, you are seeing the same thing I am. But later in the Psalm, it also says that these gods must die like mortals.

That part of the Psalm does not seem to apply to him. I am just wondering about this stuff.
