Summer in Psalms Interactive Bible Study – August 21

Thank you for joining us for a summer in Psalms! We’ll stay in Psalms through the end of August. Since this Bible study is interactive, we need a response from you, what God is laying on your heart, after you read today’s psalm. Just leave your response in the Comments section on our website’s home page. Your response could be a verse that stood out to you, observation, application, prayer, question, prayer request, or response to another’s comment. Please check back! Together we can encourage one another and grow closer to God!

The Discover One Thing ministry uses the SOAP method of Bible Study (Scripture, Observation, Application, Prayer) during our daily time at the feet of Jesus. To learn more, check out the “What’s SOAP?” tab above. This interactive study is intended to be a stepping stone from reading God’s Word to journaling with Him using SOAP.

Our next study will be 6 weeks in Romans starting September 1.

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.

The Discover One Thing main website continues to follow the Life Journal Reading Plan which covers the whole Bible in one year. Click HERE to check out today’s Discover One Thing post.

  1. Our sense of justice is strong deep inside of us. God gave us that. He gave it to us so our hearts can break like His does for those He created in His image. My Bible notes that the “gods” mentioned in today’s psalm could be human judges; think: U.S. Supreme Court. When your job is to sit around and judge all day, you can get pretty high and mighty, feeling like a “god”. And that’s the best time for Satan to wiggle his way into your thoughts like vs. 2 and 5. But today’s Christians are also stereotyped by unbelievers as heartless judges. I think it’s because we can get so wrapped around following the rules (legalism) that we lose the heart part of obedience. I don’t want to resemble these “gods”; I want to resemble my God!


  2. Verse 3 : Defend the weak and the fatherless; uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed.

    You made a big move to day! I personally want to thank You for Pastor Ty and his wife Terri and all his “HOPE” – his cause was Your cause!! He touched so many lives (and mine personally!), help us grieve him. Be with all of his children he has left behind, in this time. In Your defending name…Amen
