One of the Ten Commandments says that thou shall have no other gods before me... which seems to imply that the old Jews actually DID believe in more than one god. Just that the Abrahamic god was superior to them all.
Then there's the story of how Pharaoh's magicians were able to perform the same magic that Moses could with the help of his god... so it seems that they indeed believed in more than one god.
