Oh I think the reason for the plural is because it is a masculine plural construct. W:`AL ELOH"Y....

The only reason I would see for translating it as a singular is because the verb BYN is singular, and usually that is how you know whether or not one God is in view or many gods are in view.  The LXX has KAI EPI TOUS QEOUS.  So it is probably plural from what I can see.
