Which Is intended (IMPLIED) for Divine Beings/Ones (or not so-Divine, but "mighty") in the spiritual realms, like, we know of course the Father, and Son, as well as Angels. For some reason, old Bibles, or at least KJV, will use the word "judges", and even "exceeding" for "elohim", which is the underlying word. Can also mean MIGHTY ONE(S), or MIGHTY & DIVINE ONES. Can refer to pagan idols as well, physical or imaginary.

"Elohim" is Strong's Number 0430 here... note that the KJV used the words "judge/judges" here, as well as “great”, and followed by “thunderings” in one verse.

The Hebrew word "Eloah" seems more confined, and not as arbitrary (like GOD, FATHER, etc. multi-usage common generic shared words), as well as the Aramaic equivalent, of "alaha" (we want you to pronounce that as "aa-la-ha", for a reason you can imagine.😛)

Cp. also Strong's Hebrew H426, ('elahh), which is Aramaic, and used about 70 times in the Books of Daniel and Ezra:


Personally I go by as Yeshua did and taught us in the Gospels: pray to, worship, and ask of/from THE FATHER (sometimes I even use the word Dad 😉 ) ... it comes from the Hebraic word ABBA. Some people use that, and the writers and translators in Post Gospels did use the Multi-Usage Common Shared word for the equivalent of the word "Elohim".
