In response to the Tower of Babel (Gen 11:1-9), God divided the earth into nations (Gen 10:25) according to the number of the heavenly sons of God Deut 32:8-9 )in the divine council (Ps 82:1-6). However, these sons of God proved unfaithful (Ps 82:2,5) and will die like men (Ps 82:6) after they have been imprisoned in the day of the Lord (Isa 24:21-22). The unfaithful sons of God will be replaced by the saints, the faithful sons of God and will reign with Christ following the second coming (Rev 20:4-6; Luke 19:12-19).
