On the topic of many gods, you will notice the bible speaks of gods as in things people worship.

The rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, so as not to worship demons, and the idols of
gold and of silver and of brass and of stone and of wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk;
