Abstract This study examines three debated points in Psalm 82: the identification of those 'who do not know or understand' in v. 5, the nature of the divine speech in v. 6, and the meaning of the verb תנחל in v. 8. Each crux is addressed with an eye on the poetics of the psalm and, especially, its nature as poetry. This sort of poetic approach indicates that many of the earlier, overly-historicized studies of Psalm 82 are misguided.
