    "Thou shall have no other Gods before me."
    He stands before the council of those MINOR GODS and judges them.
    Yes we can be as, jesus told the Pharases the scripture that says we each are or by free will a part of GOD
    Ti's hatd to grasp the thought that there are other gods and those who preach today do not want to breach that topic.
    When GOD walked in the Garden he was not alone,,
  • Verse 5 and 6
    Im thinking the fallen angels that somehow found a way to be in flesh and had children with human women and had "mighty men" and/or "giants" in land before and after the flood mentioned so many times in the Bible. Where seen as "gods" to the human population(Verse 5) But God the Father reminds them(sons of God/nephilim) that they shall DIE (like MEN) and fall like one of the princes. (verse 6)

    Sorry guys, psalm 82 has NOTHING to do with men who are judges and ruling unjustly. Men already die like men! There is no need to tell them they will (die as men)whether they are judges or not. For those of you who are truly curious, have fun discovering the truth about this and many other passages like this! God bless!
  • Jeff
    Ye are Gods pssessive? I think not. This is not how Jesus would translate this psalm. Jesus used this psalm to defend against the charge of blasphemy by the pharisees.
  • John schroeder for verse 6
    we are God's possessive form meaning God owns us--not " we are god!!!
  • Abdallah nana Denkah rule for verse 6
    Glory to His precious name forever!! Love you Jesus
