Discussion for Psalms 82

  • Antonio Sanders
    I believe what this verse is talking about is both fallen angels' and humans who call themselves gods' and act like a gods'. They stand before God to be judge for wrongful acts' they commit against the world we live in. We all are Divine. It's just our actions' that proves otherwise. So, in that sense, I'm going to take this as a warning for all those who don't take judgement and actions' serious.

    V. 5 - " ... and all the 'foundations' of the earth ... "; the 'gods' here are the Jewish leaders who led the Jews into idolatry. They had not followed the laws of God wholly - the 'laws' of a nation are it's foundation; just as the way the U.S. is going. Jn. 10:34; Ps. 82:6; It's interesting that in Jn.10:34 Jesus said, " ... I said ... " - concerning Ps. 82:6.

    "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)
  • 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!!!
