Do you truly speak righteousness, O gods?
Do you judge uprightly, O children of men? Bible

“O gods.” The Hebrew of this verse is very difficult and has been considered miscopied, and different attempts have been made to restore it, thus the widely differing translations. Here, the “gods” are the men who rule, supposedly with God’s approval and authority, but they are in fact, the “sons of men,” i.e., mere men.
