The gods (elohim) stand in the congregation of El. In the midst of the gods (elohim) He [El] judges.
[The elohim asked El]
“How long will you defend the unjust
and show partiality to the wicked? Defend the weak and the fatherless; uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed? Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked? They [mankind] know nothing, neither will they understand. They walk in darkness. All the foundations of the Earth are shaken."
[Replied El to the elohim]
"I have told you gods (elohim) that you are all sons of Elyon. But you will die like mere mortals; you will fall like every other ruler.”
Rise up, O God (Elohim), judge the earth, for all the nations are your inheritance.
Version from the Dead Sea Scrolls and Septuagint
"When Elyon (Most High) allotted peoples for inheritance,...
When He divided up the Sons of Adam,...
He fixed the boundaries for peoples,...
According to the number of the Bene Elohim (Sons of El).
But YHWH’s portion is His people,
Jacob (Israel), His own inheritance."
"Ascribe to YHWH, oh Bene Elim (Sons of EL), ascribe to YHWH glory and strength."
"For who in the skies can be compared to YHWH? Who among the Bibne Elim (Sons of EL) is like YHWH?"

In this episode Dr. Heiser talks to the men behind a new translation project, John Hobbins and Samuel Bray. The first volume of their effort is entitled Genesis 1-11: A New Old Translation for Readers, Scholars, and Translators. Our discussion focuses on the translation enterprise – what translators need to think about as they do their work. The strength of this new project is its thorough documentation by the translators of what and how they were thinking during the process of producing their translation. Over 130 pages of notes about the Hebrew text and its translation issues accompany the translation. The work comes highly recommended, and Naked Bible Podcast listeners can purchase the resource at a discount.
El was Yam's father and together they fought side by side as enemies of Baal who was the Old Testament Devil, I bet you have at least heard of the latter.
