According to Job 38:1-7, how many sons of God were present when God said: "Let us make man in our image."?

Job 38:7 "When the morning stars joyfully cried out together,And all the sons of God began shouting in applause?"

Genesis 1:26 Then God said: “Let us make man in our image"

Update:

Edit to Anonymous, who has me blocked:

Which angel? Hebrews 1:6, his Firstborn.

Also those words were directed to Solomon and not to the angels.

So is Solomon also part of your Godhead?

Update 2:

@ Malcolm

The usage of Elohim doesn't mean they are NOT 'sons of God'.

Or as the inspired text reads: "sons-of Elohim"

NOG : "when the morning stars sang together and all the sons of Elohim shouted for joy?"

or as the NIV states:

"while the morning stars sang together and all the angels shouted for joy?"

So angels [literally 'sons of God'] or divine beings [literally 'sons of God'] are also literally 'sons of God'  (compare; Job 1:6)

But you and Anonymous didn't answer the question.

    The Bible doesn't indicate. The sons of God are angels. There are myriads upon myriads of angels, perhaps numbering into the billions.—Daniel 7:10; Revelation 5:11.

    We all might have been. There could have been billions present.

      This answer is based on the false idea, of man was once an angel in heaven, before we we were born.  Adam became a living soul, and not given a soul.

    I am sure they were all interested and some even left heaven to come be a human. Humans can eat, sleep and have sex. without a fleshly body they cannot do any of those things. Some even loved the animals and were amazed at the sight of them.

    "Elohim" (Hebrew) allows for a plurality of deity, godhead, divine nature.

    As for the number of the angelic hosts of heaven, Daniel said he saw “a thousand thousands that kept ministering to God, and ten thousand times ten thousand that kept standing right before him.” Dan 7:10

    There are myriads upon myriads of angels, perhaps numbering into the billions. Daniel 7:10; Revelation 5:11

    A myriad is 10,000. One myriad times one myriad is 100 million. Yet, Revelation speaks of myriads of myriads of angels.

    That is hundreds of millions, perhaps billions, of spirit creatures!

    The angels around God’s throne number myriads of myriads, or tens of thousands times tens of thousands. Rev 5:11 If this expression is to be taken in its literal sense, then the angels number into the hundreds of millions!

    There is no indication that he saw the entire angelic creation. So there may be hundreds of millions of angels.

    1) According to Job 38:1-7, how many sons of God were present when God said: "Let us make man in our image."?

    Job 38:1-7 does not teach us the answer to that question.

    That is to say: Job 38:1-7 does not teach us, "X number of sons of God were present when God said, 'Let us make man in our image.' "

      Re-reading the passage does not magically make any number appear, nor does it magically make the passage refer to the specific event explicitly inquired about in the question.

    For to which of the angels did God ever say, "You are my Son; today I have become your Father"? Or again, "I will be his Father, and he will be my Son"?

    Implied answer: not one of them.

    There is a belief that all the Engels are sons of God and part of the godhead, if 1/3 of the angels rebelled against it would only be 2/3 left that could be sons of God. And whether there were 7bbilliin or 59 billion people called those sons of God is a matter of debate. If all humans were that hostvif heaven it would matter in the count, but there is only 1 only begotten Son in the flesh

    And how many of them said: “How can you have an image when you are an invisible, spirit thingy?”
