Psalm 83:1-8 NKJV

A Song. A Psalm of Asaph.

1 Do not keep silent, O God!
Do not hold Your peace,
And do not be still, O God!

2 For behold, Your enemies make a tumult;
And those who hate You have lifted up their head.

3 They have taken crafty counsel against Your people,
And consulted together against Your sheltered ones.

4 They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation,
That the name of Israel may be remembered no more.”

5 For they have consulted together with one consent;
They form a confederacy against You:

6 The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites;
Moab and the Hagrites;

7 Gebal, Ammon, and Amalek;
Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre;

8 Assyria also has joined with them;
They have helped the children of Lot.



That Psalm is a prayer to the Lord God...a fervent plea...for Israel's deliverance in the face imminent disaster at the hand of her enemies. Look carefully again at verses 2, 3, 4 and 5.

2 For behold, Your enemies make a tumult;
And those who hate You have lifted up their head.

3 They have taken crafty counsel against Your people,
And consulted together against Your sheltered ones.

4 They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation,
That the name of Israel may be remembered no more.”

5 For they have consulted together with one consent;
They form a confederacy against You:


Isn't that exactly what we see taking place today? All I can say is that I sure am glad that my God is sovereign...He is in control...and His perfect will is going to be played out.

Amen... all of God's Word is true, and this is just one of many prophesies yet to come to pass. Before now, not all the countries mentioned were in place to bring this to fulfillment...it's just a matter of time! Praying for Israel, for Jerusalem and God's people...all of us....
