This is from another post and it fits here ....
The verses I mention below were ones I was preparing for this Topic as Post 19 about a year ago but neglected to post it until revised to answer too person quoted above.

Job 38:7 "when the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy?" Lets keep "inspired or dictated" to that topic. We should keep any debate here, it's kind of fun.
Isaiah 45:18 NKJV, "For thus says YHWH, Who created the heavens, Who is HaElohim, Who formed the earth and made it, Who has established it, Who did not create it in vain, Who formed it to be inhabited: "I am the YHWH, and there is no other
In Isaiah 45:18 NKJV quoted above, I replaced the Hebrew proper names translated in the NKJV as God and LORD to YHWH and HaElohim. This is striking in its impact. HaElohim refers to YHWH and literally expressing - all of God - in his true united tri-nature form. Then next, the last part states clearly no other was involved in creation. He will not share glory with another.
Job 38:1-7 is saying the same thing. As for the morning stars sing together and all the sons of God shouted for joy
nowhere does this indicate at all that these were partners with God creating everything or anything. These only were singing and shouting for joy. They are not part of the US
. Isaiah 45:18 states there were no other beings involved in creation as the context indicates.
Now look at Gen 2:7 - this verse clearly states that no others were involved in creation of man and no other breathed into Adam the breath of life. The Us's
were not angelic beings.
So does the bible anywhere in the OT demonstrate God's Tri-natured essence? Yes it does, for example let us look into the book of Isaiah.
"Listen to Me, O Jacob, And Israel, My called: I am He, I am the First, I am also the Last
." Isa 48:12 NKJV
Isa 48:12 shows the preincarnate Divine Jesus (Son) speaking clearly. How can we be sure of this? Rev 1: 8, Rev 1:11 NKJV, Rev 1:17, 18c verifies what he spoke in Isaiah 48:11, 12, 13 was indeed him.
The Lord then speaks of Cyrus in verses 14 and 15 and then something else the Lord says is very telling in Verse 16 and 17.
Isa 48:16 "Come near to Me, hear this: I have not spoken in secret from the beginning; From the time that it was, I was there. And now the Lord GOD and His Spirit Have sent Me
Here we have the First and the Last speak who is identified as God Himself hidden in the name YHWH as Isaiah 44:6, Isaiah 41:4 reveals. Then in verse 16, God says, the lord God and His Spirit Have sent me. Let me place the real Hebrew word translated as GOD in the text:
Isa 48:16 "Come near to Me, hear this: I have not spoken in secret from the beginning; From the time that it was, I was there. And now the Lord (Adonai) YHWH and His Spirit Have sent Me.
You have the something of note being said here. You have YHWH saying the lord YHWH and His Spirit sent Him to speak. Jesus is known as the Word in John 1:1. Who would be the lord YHWH and why was adonai (Lord) placed before the name? It Identifies the Father and His Sprit - the Holy Spirit sent him!
If you look at Isaiah 48:17-22, you’ll notice a switch in voice tone as the Father begins to speak in these verses. How can you tell? Verse 21 mentions a He
that led Israel in the wilderness:
Isa 48:21 NKJV And they did not thirst When He led them through the deserts; He caused the waters to flow from the rock for them; He also split the rock, and the waters gushed out.
Who was the He? (Exodus 33:14, 15, Exodus 13:21, Exodus 16:10, Exodus 19:9, then note 1 Co 10:4) Well, the First and the Last mentioned in Isaiah 48:12 is the He
the Father was speaking of.
Now, go back to Isaiah 45:18 – For thus says YHWH, Who created the heavens, Who is HaElohim, Who formed the earth and made it, Who has established it, Who did not create it in vain, Who formed it to be inhabited: "I am the YHWH, and there is no other.
HaElohim refers to YHWH and literally expressing 'all of God within YHWH' in His true united tri-nature form. Then next, the last part states clearly no other was involved in creation. He shares not glory with another.
In Exodus 18:11 haelohim is translated as the gods
and refers to all the false gods
in the verse context. When HaElohim is used to denote YHWH, it refers to his entire state of being – the Divine Trinity - the Godhead - essence mentioned in Rom 1:20 NKJV and Col 2:9 NKJV).
The pronouns US
referred to in Gen 1:26 is in reality HaElohim being Himself, functioning as Himself, creating as He did and how He did...
Again this shows the inspiration from God into the bible because no human being could conceive One God in three persons of one divine essence (Father, Son, Holy Spirit found within the name YHWH).
