Gem from Huston

The last word is Psalm 8:5 is ‘elohim.  This is mistranslated as "angels", yielding "Thou hast made [man] little lower than the angels."  The word ‘elohim is actually gods, or–because the number is not specified this Hebrew word-God.  Hence, the verse should read, "Thou hast made him little lower than the gods [or God]."

I guess I see why the KJV translator wimped out.
