7 Confounded be all they that serve graven images, that boast themselves of idols: worship him, all ye Elohim.

Elohim is a name bestowed on angels and orders of men.

'Worship him, all ye Elohim'... is quoted by Paul in the first chapter of Hebrews as a command of the Everlasting Father to the angels, that they should do homage to the Lord Jesus as His Son, when He shall introduce Him, into the world again at the opening of the future age. It is also written concerning Him, 

"Thou hast made Him a little lower than the Elohim."

Paul applies this to Jesus, saying, "we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels." He continued inferior to them a little upwards of thirty years, from his birth of the flesh to His resurrection, when He was exalted far above them in rank and dignity, even to the "right hand of power," which is enthroned in light, where dwells the Majesty in the heavens.

Elpis Israel 1.6.



11 Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.

It means the day of gladness that awaits the sons of God, gladness such as they can never know in the flesh; the gladness of a living union with Christ - a living union with God; not a union by faith, but of actual, manifest, and exhilaratingly-experienced fact.

We do not know what gladness is now. We have never tasted the real joys of existence. It is with difficulty that we pull ourselves along, by reason of our own weakness, physically and mentally, and by reason of the coldness and the darkness of the present evil world.

But joy is appointed nevertheless.

It waits.
