Bene elohim

Translated to "sons of God" or "Gods of Elohim" they're a hierarchy of angel and can be found in Genesis 6:2, Job 1:6, Job 38:7, and Psalm 29:1

Deuteronomy 32:8 also mentions "sons of Israel" bÿney yisra'el (בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל), which is translated as the "people of Israel" in the HCSB, "heavenly court" in the New Living Translation, and "heavenly assembly" in the New English Translation. [References 1] [References 2]

In some copies of Deuteronomy, the Dead Sea Scrolls refer to the sons of God rather than the sons of Israel, probably in reference to angels. The Septuagint reads similarly. [References 3] [References 4]
