You do know there is more than one god referenced in the Bible, yes? Some even seem to be gods YHWH answers to.
I don't know what you refer to when you say other gods being in the bible. It was always my impression (uninformed as it may be) that any gods cited in the bible were cited as false gods. Can you show me where they were supported by the bible?
I am looking but your help would be appreciated.
And God said, let us make man in our image.
And the Lord God said, Behold, then man is become as one of us, to know good and evil.
Let us go down, and there confound their language.
I don't see the "us" as refering to a second being. I think that is an artifact of language.
And against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment.
Interesting, if god was dispelling a myth I would think he would have referred to this in another fashion.
Who is like unto thee, O LORD, among the gods?
Now I know that the LORD is greater than all gods.
Exodus 20:3, 5
Thou shalt have no other gods before me. ... Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them.
He that sacrificeth unto any god, save unto the LORD only, he shall be utterly destroyed. (v.20)
Thou shalt not revile the gods. (v.28)
Make no mention of the name of other gods, neither let it be heard out of thy mouth. (v.13)
Thou shalt not bow down to their gods, nor serve them, nor do after their works: but thou shalt utterly overthrow them, and quite break down their images. (v.24)
Thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor with their gods. (v.32)
For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.
Again I believe this is an artifact of speech, when I speak of the god i do not believe in I still call him god. If I were god and wanted people to no longer pray to their imaginary gods I might well speak of them as "your gods, or other gods"
Upon their gods also the LORD executed judgments.
I don't know how you execute judgements against non existent gods?
What God is there in heaven or in earth, that can do according to thy works?
If the answer is none it might well be because there are no other gods.
Thou shalt have none other gods before me.
Again if there were no otehr gods people still may have invented them, god could very well have been saying to pray to false gods that don't exist, I am the only god.
Ye shall not go after other gods, of the gods of the people which are round about you;(For the LORD thy God is a jealous God among you)
I am not sure that this is referring to god as a proper noun. Again I see little difference between this and using other gods as a figure of speech.
For the LORD your God is God of gods, and Lord of lords.
Again figure of speech referring to made up gods not literally other gods.
Thou shalt not ... go after other gods to serve them.
"you should not pray to invisible imaginary gods. adam and eves god is the only god?
They served other gods. (v.2)
Fear the Lord ... and put away the gods which your fathers served. (v.14)
I still feel this is a reference to false made up gods.
Wilt not thou possess that which Chemosh thy god giveth thee to possess?
1 Samuel 6:5

1 Samuel 28:13

1 Chronicles 16:25
The Lord ... is to be feared above all gods.
God standeth in the congregation of the mighty, he judgeth among the gods. (v.1)
I have said, Ye are gods. (v.6)
Among the gods there is none like unto thee, O Lord.

Worship him, all ye gods.

I will utter my judgments against them ... who have forsaken me, and have burned incense unto other gods.
The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth, even they shall perish from the earth, and from under these heavens.

The Lord will be terrible to them: for he will famish all the gods of the earth.
The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God. Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?
1 John 5:7
For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
With a few exceptions I think mention of other gods refers to made up gods or men simply stating that if you had a god my god is better.
