Psalms 82:7

Context
NETBible

Yet you will die like mortals; 1  you will fall like all the other rulers.” 2 

XREF

Job 21:32; Ps 49:12; Ps 83:11; Eze 31:14

NET © Notes

tn Heb “men.” The point in the context is mortality, however, not maleness.

sn You will die like mortals. For the concept of a god losing immortality and dying, see Isa 14:12-15, which alludes to a pagan myth in which the petty god “Shining One, son of the Dawn,” is hurled into Sheol for his hubris.

tn Heb “like one of the rulers.” The comparison does not necessarily imply that they are not rulers. The expression “like one of” can sometimes mean “as one of” (Gen 49:16; Obad 11) or “as any other of” (Judg 16:7, 11).
