comment Is there a way to express monotheism in hebrew language?
I do not know how many UFO, gods, or aliens are. We don't even have good definition of that. An almighty being can at most be one because if there are two, one would beat up the other and hence the other couldn't be almighty too. I don't need a bible for that. Problems start when clear monotheistic claims in the torah, instead of henotheistic is very scarce.

Technically it's henotheistic. It claims that Yahweh is Israel's only God. It doesn't say that the other nations do not legitimately have their own gods.

There are no gods but Yahweh. In hebrew, it would be what? There is no elohim but Yahweh. But then again, elohim doesn't really mean gods. It can mean many things and there are indeed many elohim. See the problem is? How can you express monotheism then?

That's precisely the problem I am asking. In one hand, there is no elohim besides me. On the other, "You created men slightly below the elohim" So there are indeed many other elohim. They're just not gods but angels. But there are many other elohim.

Well, at least the bible translators agree to disagree. They translate Psalm 8:5 differently.

It doesn't say that YHWH is the only eloah. In fact, as I said many other beings, like angels and judges and rulers are called eloah too. It simply says that Israel has only one eloah (which is not even true). And that YHWH is one.

in this verse, is it followed by plural words?

comment Are the words “wife” and “woman” the same in Hebrew and Greek?
Could be. Or Jesus could say "wives" to mean other wives. It's sin to look at others' wives with lust. It's not sin to see women in general. Just like it's adultery to have sex with someone else' wife, but it's not adultery to have concubines like David and Abraham, for example. I am not saying it's true. I am saying that it could be what Jesus mean and from the verse, we can't know which one.

comment Does 1 Corinthians 8:5-6 favor henotheism?
+!. Not sure which answer is the correct one. Looks like Paul doesn't know how many gods are there.

comment Does 1 Corinthians 8:5-6 favor henotheism?
(as there are many gods and many lords). Why is this phrase in parentheses anyway?
