Arno Gaebelein's Annotated Bible
Psalms 83



Verses 1-18

Psalm 83

The Final Enemies Overthrown

1. The enemies in confederacy (Psalms 83:1-8)

2. Their complete defeat and fate (Psalms 83:9-18)

Elsewhere in prophecy we read of the confederacies of nations, Israel’s enemies, coming against the land of Israel in a final great onslaught. There will be an invasion from the north mentioned in Isaiah 29:1-24; Joel 2:1-32; Daniel 8:9-12, and in Zechariah 12:2. Then there will also be Gog and Magog invading the land (Ezekiel 38:1-23, etc.). It seems the former is in view here. The godly remnant prays and speaks of these invading hosts as “His enemies” calling upon the Lord to deal with them. Their satanic object is to cut them off from being a nation. They remind the Lord of what He did with Israel’s former enemies and treat them likewise, so that Jehovah may become the Most High (God’s millennial Name) over all the earth
