The authors of scripture were not polytheists as they exalted YHWH above all other gods.

Gods of the Bible

Psalm 82

Rescue the Weak and Needy

A Psalm of Asaph.

82 God has taken his place in the divine council; in the midst of the gods he holds judgment: 2 “How long will you judge unjustly and show partiality to the wicked? Selah 3 Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute. 4 Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.”

5 They have neither knowledge nor understanding, they walk about in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are shaken.

6 I said, “You are gods, sons of the Most High, all of you; 7 nevertheless, like men you shall die, and fall like any prince.”[a]

8 Arise, O God, judge the earth; for you shall inherit all the nations!
