God and gods, Elohim and elohim


(Yahweh is an Elohim but only one Elohim is Yahweh)
“Let the heavens praise your wonders, O Lord, your faithfulness in the assembly of the holy ones! For who in the skies can be compared to the Lord? Who among the heavenly beings is like the Lord, a God greatly to be feared in the council of the holy ones, and awesome above all who are around him? O Lord God of hosts, who is mighty as you are, O Lord, with your faithfulness all around you? You rule the raging of the sea; when its waves rise, you still them. You crushed Rahab like a carcass; you scattered your enemies with your mighty arm. The heavens are yours; the earth also is yours; the world and all that is in it, you have founded them.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭89:5-11‬ ‭
“God has taken his place in the divine council; in the midst of the gods (Elohim) he holds judgment: “How long will you judge unjustly and show partiality to the wicked? Selah Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.” They have neither knowledge nor understanding, they walk about in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are shaken. I said, “You are gods, (Elohim) sons of the Most High, all of you; nevertheless, like men (Adam) you shall die, and fall like any prince.” Arise, O God, judge the earth; for you shall inherit all the nations!”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭82:1-8‬ ‭
“I and the Father are one.” The Jews picked up stones again to stone him. Jesus answered them, “I have shown you many good works from the Father; for which of them are you going to stone me?” The Jews answered him, “It is not for a good work that we are going to stone you but for blasphemy, because you, being a man, make yourself God.” Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your Law, ‘I said, you are gods’? If he called them gods (Elohim) to whom the word of God came—and Scripture cannot be broken— do you say of him whom the Father consecrated and sent into the world, ‘You are blaspheming,’ because I said, ‘I am the Son of God’?(Yahweh) If I am not doing the works of my Father, then do not believe me; but if I do them, even though you do not believe me, believe the works, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me and I am in the Father.””
‭‭John‬ ‭10:30-38‬ ‭
“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.”‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭6:12‬ ‭

“On his robe and on his thigh he has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords.”
‭‭Revelation‬ ‭19:16‬ ‭
“which he will display at the proper time—he who is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords,”
‭‭1 Timothy‬ ‭6:15‬ ‭
YAHWEH-ELOHIM: “LORD God” (Genesis 2:4; Psalm 59:5) – a combination of God’s unique name YHWH and the generic “Lord,” signifying that He is the Lord of Lords. King of kings, God of gods.
