“Worship Him, all you gods. . . .
For you, LORD, are high above all the earth;
you are exalted far above all gods.”
Psalm 97:7, 9
The word “gods” is often used in reference to men who are in authority, and to heavenly beings as well. For example, God told Moses that He would make Moses a god over Pharaoh and Egypt (Ex. 7:1). However, these verses from Psalm 97 remind us that no matter how much authority men or heavenly beings possess, all those “gods” are to bow at the feet of “the most high God” (Gen. 14:18–19), the One who gave them whatever power they have.
