Matthew Henry's Psalms Chapter 83 Bible commentary...
The designs of the enemies of Israel. (1-8) Earnest prayer for their defeat. (9-18)
1-8 Sometimes God seems not to be concerned at the unjust treatment of his people. But then we may call upon him, as the psalmist here. All wicked people are God's enemies, especially wicked persecutors. The Lord's people are his hidden one; the world knows them not. He takes them under his special protection. Do the enemies of the church act with one consent to destroy it, and shall not the friends of the church be united? Wicked men wish that there might be no religion among mankind. They would gladly see all its restraints shaken off, and all that preach, profess, or practise it, cut off. This they would bring to pass if it were in their power. The enemies of God's church have always been many: this magnifies the power of the Lord in preserving to himself a church in the world.
9-18 All who oppose the kingdom of Christ may here read their doom. God is the same still that ever he was; the same to his people, and the same against his and their enemies. God would make their enemies like a wheel; unsettled in all their counsels and resolves. Not only let them be driven away as stubble, but burnt as stubble. And this will be the end of wicked men. Let them be made to fear thy name, and perhaps that will bring them to seek thy name. We should desire no confusion to our enemies and persecutors but what may forward their conversion. The stormy tempest of Divine vengeance will overtake them, unless they repent and seek the pardoning mercy of their offended Lord. God's triumphs over his enemies, clearly prove that he is, according to his name JEHOVAH, an almighty Being, who has all power and perfection in himself. May we fear his wrath, and yield ourselves to be his willing servants. And let us seek deliverance by the destruction of our fleshly lusts, which war against the soul.

Timothy said it well There is coming a day when we will know that we know that we know That Jehovah is the most high over all the earth There will be no debating no questions no curiosity His name is Great and Almighty There is coming a day when every knee shall bow and tongue confess that Jesus Is Lord to the Glory of God Praise the Lord God forever more Read the word of God as it is and allow Holy Spirit to teach you

Indeed the scripture has stated very clear by saying men who do not know may know Ps 119 73 thy hands have made me fashioned me give me understanding that i may learn thy commands meaning that us we know him even upon what He has done as our Creater that thou despite His doings is got a name for who He is whose name is JEHOVAH He alone maker ps119 73 great teacher ps119 33 and the most high over all the earth Its also a god thing that HE is known by HIS name so that none gets confused when it comes to acknowledging addressing our GOD

Faithfull's Psalms Chapter 83 comment on 2/02/2014, 2:26pm...
3 They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.
And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be.
these two are them hidden ones. they are the living waters they counsel against
it is already beginning even now! look to the oceans very little is left alive today, look to the lakes and rivers they have destroyed most of the earths living waters already!

Psalm 83 is a fulfilment of the current crisis in the middle east. the book of psalms is referring to the current Arabs(enemies of God)making a resolution that the nation of Israel must be destroyed but they are all going to be destroyed
