first Dagon and Asheroth [female goddess, wife of YHWH according to some jewish myths] not Ashteroth, were both called ELOHIM just like YHWH was
Where is the word 'lhym ever applied to Dagan (who was an agricultural god, the father of Baal) and Asherah (creator-goddess, wife of El in the Canaanite pantheon and possibly wife of Yahweh in henotheistic Yahwism) in the OT or other ANE texts? Usually 'lym and the like are applied to the members of the divine council in ANE texts. Philo of Byblos, in his Phoenician theogony, names the Eloim as the allies of Elus (i.e. El) in his war against Shamayn (i.e. the father of El, if I recall correctly). In most of the OT, 'lhym is mostly used to refer to a single god (i.e. Yahweh, hence the singular verbal agreement), tho there are some residue of the earlier polytheistic sense here and there.
