If I recall correctly, the plural in the original Hebrew was more of a royal 'we.'  I'm going by memory mind.

I could also see it as God addressing angels.  That's fairly irrelevant speculation.  Either way, I don't think it's necessary to assume that God is addressing fellow deities.

On a lighter note, Im suddenly feeling amused by the notion of pagan Biblical literalists. Smiley

As to "the notion of pagan Biblical literalists. Smiley" - it is an amusing idea but:

This thread is addressing the serious issue of someone who is afraid to try to find something to fill an obvious need in her life.

She is afraid because she has been brought up being told that there is only one god and that god will do dreadful things to her if she is not faithful.

I think people are quoting the bible to show that what she has been told should not be taken literally.

JCI followers claim that their god is the only god. Their supposedly "revealed truth" ie the Bible says otherwise.

Psalm 82:1 "God stands in the divine assembly,
                among the gods he dispenses justice"

and as I said earlier the Pentateuch is dripping with references to other gods. Many of them do not appear to be referring to idols.

The point of mentioning this is not to say the bible is to be taken as truth - quite the opposite in fact.

What I am having trouble understanding is how Celtic Revivalist can be having trouble with the concept if triplicity.
