Psalms 82:3-4
(ג) שִׁפְטוּ דַל וְיָתוֹם עָנִי וָרָשׁ הַצְדִּיקוּ: (ד) פַּלְּטוּ דַל וְאֶבְיוֹן מִיַּד רְשָׁעִים הַצִּילוּ
Judge the wretched and the orphan, vindicate the lowly and the poor. Rescue the wretched and the needy; save them from the hand of the wicked. [JPS translation]

Suggested Discussion Questions:

1. What is the responsibility of humans to judge, vindicate, rescue, and save?

2. How is this command a cause of pursuing justice?
