That is correct. The word Elohim is PLURAL form of God meaning GODS and appears everywhere in the Bible.
Also when you read about the Tower of Bable, the Bible speaks of God in the plural when it says 'Let US confound their language' (paraphrasing here as I don't have my scriptures handy at the moment. LOL)
