Who is God (Psalm 82:1)?

Psalm 118:27 says Jehovah is the Divine One

Psalm 82:1 says God is stationing himself in the assembly of the Divine One

Is the Divine One is Jehovah...who is God? Or is God stationing himself in his own assembly?

    Ps 82:1 (word for word). psalm to-Asaph Elohim (God) one-being-stationed in-congregation-of El (God) in-within-of Elohim (gods) he-is-judging. or (God stationed Himself in the congregation of God, within the gods he is judging)

    A simple translation would be "God stationed himself within his congregation."

    This congregation is either the human judges in vs 6. or a heavenly vision of God standing amount his angels which are called literally gods in Ps 8:5, where most bibles translate this as 'angels' heavenly beings, or god like ones'.

    What is interesting is that Jesus in John 10 liken his godship to the godship of these judges by claiming to be God's Son.

    Jehovah, or the newer transliteration is Yahweh or Yaheveh as there is no "J" sound in Hebrew. Is the one and only Name of God, so yes He is "The Divine One". In Psalm 82:1 both the English word "God" and in your translation the English term "Divine One" are both translations of the same Hebrew word, "Elohim" God is sometimes called Elohim and also the Hebrew, "El" is similar to our word "God" and "im" is the masculine plural so that Elohim literally means, "Gods" as in more than one. I think sometimes angels are called Elohim in the Bible as angels are supernatural beings with far greater powers than a human, of course the good angels are all obedient to Yaheveh.

    The phrase "stationing Himself" is the translation of the Hebrew Qureb which means in the midst of. I'm running out of time so let me just say I think that the sentences you are asking about really say that Yaheveh is in the midst of His angels and judges them. I hope this helps a little. If you check this out on the website <blueletterbible.com> you can find out what the original Hebrew says in much greater detail than I have time for. God bless you for wanting to understand what the true meaning of God's word is.

    I tried to look that scripture up and this is what I found.

    How does God judge “in the middle of the gods”?

    “the gods” were the judges of Israel. They were called gods because they were mighty in judicial power. Jehovah, as the Supreme Judge, had the divine right to enter into the midst of such judges to reprove them for failing to judge according to his law.—Isaiah 33:22; Psalm 82:2-4.

    They were to serve as God’s spokesmen and representatives.

    John 10:33-36. is the answer.

    And when that great day cometh, behold, the time very soon cometh that those who are now, or the seed of those who are now numbered among the people of Nephi, shall no more be numbered among the people of Nephi.

    14 But whosoever remaineth, and is not destroyed in that great and dreadful day, shall be numbered among the Lamanites, and shall become like unto them, all, save it be a few who shall be called the disciples of the Lord; and them shall the Lamanites pursue even until they shall become extinct. And now, because of iniquity, this prophecy shall be fulfilled.

    15 And now it came to pass that after Alma had said these things to Helaman, he blessed him, and also his other sons; and he also blessed the earth for the righteous’ sake.

    16 And he said: Thus saith the Lord God—Cursed shall be the land, yea, this land, unto every nation, kindred, tongue, and people, unto destruction, which do wickedly, when they are fully ripe; and as I have said so shall it be; for this is the cursing and the blessing of God upon the land, for the Lord cannot look upon sin with the least degree of allowance.

    17 And now, when Alma had said these words he blessed the church, yea, all those who should stand fast in the faith from that time henceforth.

    18 And when Alma had done this he departed out of the land of Zarahemla, as if to go into the land of Melek. And it came to pass that he was never heard of more; as to his death or burial we know not of.

    19 Behold, this we know, that he was a righteous man; and the saying went abroad in the church that he was taken up by the Spirit, or buried by the hand of the Lord, even as Moses.
