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.

"Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat and swallow a camel." (Matthew 23:24) I've read many of the posted comments and am just saddened by meaningless debate over the name Jehovah...What about the joy of what David is saying: that God is most high and above all the earth...Instead of petty debate and attempting to prove man's doctrine or justify a certain religious belief, what's most important is glorifying God who is Jehovah, high above the earth, maker and creator of all things, by serving His only begotten Son Jesus Christ, that whosoever belief in Him, should not perish but have everlasting life. God's word is truth. without the Holy Ghost, noone will ever come into the presence of the Most High God
Paul's Psalms Chapter 83 comment on 11/07/2013, 4:53am...
The name Jehovah has been used around the globe for many centuries, it can be found in churches, on coins and on buildings to name but a few.
Some hold Jesus as Almighty God.
Jesus is not Almighty, but mighty god.
His Father alone is Almighty God.
How can we be sure that Jesus is the correct pronunciation, but we all still use it!
JEHOVAH or YAHWEH, you choose!

There are other books in the king James version that mention God's name Jehovah. In the new testament though Jesus taught us to name and call Him FATHER.

If this is the only place in Kings Version than it is sad. To all sincere believers of God and Jesus Christ should wake up and do some real studying because God's name in original scripts is used almost 7,000 times and God requires from us to call upon his name. For example: Isiah 12:2,4,5 Jer. 33:2,3 There are many , many verses that needed to be studied by those who oppose God's name and believe in Trinity. I hope you wake up.
