comment What does Patterns of Elohim followed by Singular Words like in Genesis 1:1 really mean?
So, only Israelites and Judahites have this Elohim followed by singular words. So they do have something "unique" about their beliefs.

I am not saying that genesis 1:1 makes a monotheistic claim. I am asking if elohim followed by singular words mean something along, "super god creates heaven and earth." That is in a sense, a monotheistic claim. So Yahweh is not just an eloah. He's a super eloah, and hence called elohim.

comment Why is Elohim translated as God rather than gods in Genesis 1:1?
I see. So the pattern of elohim followed by singular words do imply monotheistic claim. Am I correct?

I see. So following a plural word elohim with a singular verb is gramatically correct in hebrew. It just means something special. What does it mean? "Royal we?"

So this pattern of elohim followed by singular words do necessarily refer to a one monotheistic "God"?

I modified the question. There are many theories of this elohim followed by singular words thingy. Is this only occuring in ancient judaism or do we have something similar in more obviously polytheistic culture like cultures around Israel?

comment Is there a way to express monotheism in hebrew language?
In exodus 12:12, Yahweh is punishing egyptian gods. So Yahweh admit that egyptian gods exist and sentient enough to be punished.

comment Is Deuteronomy 32:39 a monotheistic declaration?
A god that assign stuffs for all people under heaven is a god that's powerful enough to influence all people, not just israelites. That's what I mean.

It's not a latter insertion? And it's henotheistic?
