Footnotes:

  1. Psalm 82:1 The term gods, which in Hebrew refers to mighty ones, may refer to heathen gods (which really are demons) or occasionally to angels or to rulers, who act as God’s representatives. Verses 6 and 7 suggest that in this psalm it is the last of these options. Jesus makes use of this interpretation of this psalm in John 10:34.
