John 10:34-35

10:34 Jesus answered, ‘Is it not written in your Law, “I said: You are gods”? 10:35 It is those to whom God’s word came who are called gods — and scripture cannot be set aside.

The quote is from Psalm 82:6:

Psalm 82

A Psalm by Asaph.

82:1 God presides in the great assembly.
He judges among the gods.
82:2 “How long will you judge unjustly,
and show partiality to the wicked?”
Selah.
82:3 “Defend the weak, the poor, and the fatherless.
Maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed.
82:4 Rescue the weak and needy.
Deliver them out of the hand of the wicked.”
82:5 They don’t know, neither do they understand.
They walk back and forth in darkness.
All the foundations of the earth are shaken.
82:6 I said, “You are gods,
all of you are sons of the Most High.
82:7 Nevertheless you shall die like men,
and fall like one of the rulers.”
82:8 Arise, God, judge the earth,
for you inherit all of the nations.
