Tom, I believe Gill answered your question, if I understood your question correctly. John Gill is highly respected for his scholarship on the Jewish teachings and in many of his commentary remarks he references writings of the Jews. If you don't have access to the commentary by John Gill, it is online. I'll paste the URL for this Gen. 1:26 comment so you can read the full passage. http://www.studylight.org/commentaries/geb/genesis-1.html

The Jews seemed to have 3 views, according to Gill:
The plurals "us" and "ours" refer to God speaking of Himself along with the earth as the Creators.
Or, the plurals refer to the angels along with God as Creators
Or, the plurals are expressive of honor and majesty, not to be taken literally as plural.

My last two lines of text were a reference to Job 35:10 and that may have been misleading to you.
