a God who is feared in the council of the holy ones,
great and awesome above all those who are around him? Bible

“the council of the holy ones.” The word “council” is translated from the Hebrew word sōd (#05475 סוֹד) and it refers to a “council, secret council, intimate council, circle of familiar friends, assembly.” In this context it refers to God’s intimate divine council, in contrast to larger general assemblies of spirit beings such as we see in Job 1:6 and 1 Kings 22:19, and which is mentioned in Psalm 89:5 [For more on God’s divine council, see commentary on Genesis 1:26. For more on God’s presiding over a large general assembly of spirit beings, see commentary on Job 1:6].
