Psalm 83

Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.

For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.

They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.

They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.

For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee:

The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes;

Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre;

Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah.

Do unto them as unto the Midianites; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook of Kison:

10 Which perished at Endor: they became as dung for the earth.

11 Make their nobles like Oreb, and like Zeeb: yea, all their princes as Zebah, and as Zalmunna:

12 Who said, Let us take to ourselves the houses of God in possession.

13 O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind.

14 As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire;

15 So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid with thy storm.

16 Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O Lord.

17 Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish:

18 That men may know that thou, whose name alone is Jehovah, art the most high over all the earth.

  1. Psalm 18 AMP “That they may know that You alone, whose name is the Lord, Are the Most High over all the earth.” Same verse NLT “Then they will learn that you alone are called the Lord, that you alone are the Most High, supreme over all the earth.”

    1 Timothy 6:15 CEV says “The glorious God is the only Ruler, the King of kings and Lord of lords. At the time that God has already decided, he will send Jesus Christ back again.”

  2. 14. As the FIRE burns the woods, And as the flame sets the mountains on FIRE,

    16. Fill their faces with shame, That they may seek Your name, O Lord.

    18. That they may know that You, whose name alone is the Lord, Are the Most High over all the earth. NKJV

    My Dad used to threaten to light a FIRE under me when I wasn’t doing something the way he thought it should be done…
    Over the next 40 days, our Heavenly Father will be using whatever means necessary to light a FIRE under us and those that we are lifting up in prayer to encourage us to seek His Name and know that He is Most High over all the earth!

  3. 18 That men may know that thou, whose name alone is Jehovah, art the most high over all the earth.

    Who is like You, LORD, in all the earth? Matchless love and beauty, endless worth?

  4. 14 As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire;
    15 So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid with thy storm.
    16 Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O Lord.

    Our goal shouldn’t be to pray for God just defeat those that come against us but that they turn from their ways and seek God. There isn’t a person in this world that deserves hell more than we do. They are just merely open to being used of the real enemy. So we pray that God burns that out of them and reaches their heart.

  5. Then they will learn that you alone are called the Lord, that you alone are the most high, supreme over all the earth.

    Psalms 83:4 NLT “Come,” they say, “let us wipe out Israel as a nation. We will destroy the very memory of its existence.”

    For thousands of years, the surrounding pagan nations have threatened to wipe Israel off the map. Just look at verse #4 and compare it to the statement I found on the internet below and you will see the comparison proving that over 3,000 years that the enemy’s goal is still the same…destroy God’s people. This should give us great hope however for the fact Israel is still standing and so are we. “Greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world!”

    TEHRAN — Iran’s conservative president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, said that Israel must be “wiped off the map” and that attacks by Palestinians would destroy it, the ISNA press agency reported.

    Ahmadinejad was speaking to an audience of about 4,000 students at a program called “The World Without Zionism,” in preparation for an annual anti-Israel demonstration on the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan.

    His tone was reminiscent of that of the early days of Iran’s Islamic revolution in 1979. Iran and Israel have been bitter enemies since then, and anti-Israel slogans have been common at rallies.

  7. What this chapter means to me is we need to have peace and let god move upon us and are life’s we must obey the voice of the lord everyday.

    Go in Jesus Name Amen

  8. Don’t let the fire go out

    14 As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire;

    Let the Holy Ghost fire consume anything and everything that is not of God. We need the fire within us. We need the Holy Ghost more now than we have ever needed it. This world is passing away, before our vary eyes. Get ready church. Revival is here. It is our time. This is the time that God had called us to be apart of. The world is in trouble and we have the answer that everyone needs. So now the question is how will you change your world? My suggestion…#GOdosomething

  9. GO IN FIRE

    14 As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire;

    Times of persecution, usually birth the best or worst in man. This same principal applies to FIRE. We will either BURN as a light to the world or burn up in the world. The psalmist here identifies the concept of FIRE. It burns any and all available wood and is no respecter of boundaries.

    From a negative perspective the FIRE will destroy everything in its path, burning all wood, and resources in its path. This is the request of the psalmist to the adversaries. Show them Great GOD how mighty and powerful you are. The FIRE of the LORD can be a consuming FIRE and destroy any and everything.

    However from a positive perspective, the FIRE of the LORD is one that could burn in believers to ignite a Global Revival that will carry the Message of JESUS around the world. This is my Prayer for 40 Days of FIRE that JESUS would spark something in us that will birth life changing REVIVAL and HARVEST around the world.

    May GOD help us to all catch the FIRE of the WORD and SPIRIT of GOD in our hearts and lives and we will be the torch of HIS Glory for all the world to witness the Grace and Mercy of GOD through us.

  10. 18 That men may know that thou, whose name alone is Jehovah, art the most high over all the earth.
    There’s no God like Jehovah! NO matter what false God’s and powers there are in this world, we are blessed to know the one, true, living God!

  11. 18 That men may know that thou, whose name alone is Jehovah, art the most high over all the earth.

    Even when the enemy is attacking, God is still with us; He will make Himself known in our situations, He will show Himself mighty if we allow Him to have His way.

  12. 17 Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish:

    18 That men may know that thou, whose name alone is Jehovah, art the most high over all the earth.

  13. 14 As fire consumes the forest
    or a flame sets the mountains ablaze,
    15 so pursue them with your tempest
    and terrify them with your storm.

    A small spark can consume a whole forest just like Jesus!!! A small spark of His HG fire can consume us completely and burn everything inside of us!!! The HG fire is something that we can’t stay still when we have it, its something that keeps me moving, its an energy that just consumes me completely from head to toes. A fire that is contagious, a fire that can’t stay still, a fire that burns all impurity, a fire that moves me, a fire that pushes me….I want more Lord!!!! I never want my fire to burn out Lord!!!

  14. 12 Who said, Let us take to ourselves the houses of God in possession.

    13 O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind

    14 As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire;.

    16 Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O Lord.

    17 Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish:

    18 That men may know that thou, whose name alone is Jehovah, art the most high over all the earth.

    The Psalmist prayed that God would blow these nations away until the recognized that the Lord is above all else. Sometimes we must be humbled by adversary before we will seek the Lord, sometimes we must be defeated before we can have the ultimate victory. Wouldn’t it be better to seek the Lord in prosperity rather than to wait until judgement? Instead of waiting till we have no other option than to seek after Him, why don’t we seek after Him now in the good times and bad! Why don’t we let the fire inside us draw us to the house of God, let the Holy Ghost fan the flames in our soul. Lord we are desperate for you, fill us with a fire than cannot go out and with a desire to seek after you! I was glad when they said unto us let’s GO to the house of the Lord!

  15. Fuel the Fire!!

    14 As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire;

    A fire needs certain elements to burn and sustain itself. First it needs oxygen and second it needs fuel and finally it needs heat. We have the ability to be either and sometimes both of these elements. If we are feeling weak and leaning on the Lord for strength, we are the fuel. God breathes into our lives and speaks blessings or healings and we can then catch on fire. If we are feeling confident and strong, we are the oxygen and we are looking for fuel to combust with. Maybe God will use our oxygen or atmosphere to strengthen a Brother or Sister who can only be fuel at the moment and together we can start a fire that can change their circumstances.

  16. “As a fire burns a forest and as a flame sets mountains ablaze,”
    ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭83:14‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    “chase them with your fierce storm; terrify them with your tempest.”
    ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭83:15‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    “Utterly disgrace them until they submit to your name, O Lord.”
    ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭83:16 NLT

    “Let them be ashamed and terrified forever. Let them die in disgrace.”
    ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭83:17‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    “Then they will learn that you alone are called the Lord, that you alone are the Most High, supreme over all the earth.”
    ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭83:18‬ ‭NLT‬‬

  17. 14 As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire;

    Lord you make my enemies flee with the fire they see. The fire that we have is being fed by your precious word and is burning rapid and fiercely. Start a fire within my soul that I can’t contain and I can’t control. lord I want more of you! These words should represent what we want and desire. Never do I want to stop loving you, for “you saved me!” never will I go back to my old ways that is in the past. Thank You Jesus! Amen

  18. 3 They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.

    Let our counsel be found in the Word of God, not from our peers. We can always find someone to agree with us if we search hard enough. Open up the Word, find the answer, take it to the Man of God in your life, and those you are accountable to and get your direction from there.

  19. 15 So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid with thy storm.
    16 Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O Lord.

    It is interesting to note that while David calls on God to destroy his enemies-which are both enemies to David and the Lord, he ask that that the end of it be that they will seek the Lord. Hopefully we don’t see enemies, but rather we see someone who needs the Lord and his goodness and salvation.

  20. 18 That men may know that thou, whose name alone is Jehovah, art the most high over all the earth.
    You GOD of all the Earth my enemies shall know that your GOD and I know you will protect me from the

  21. Psalms 83:18, “That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth.”

  22. Then they will learn that you alone are called the Lord, that you alone are the Most High, supreme over all the earth. (‭Psalms‬ ‭83‬:‭18‬ NLT)

    They can do and say what ever they want, at the end GOD has the last word. His people shall prevail.

    What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us? (‭Romans‬ ‭8‬:‭31‬ NLT)

  23. I Love To Worship The Lord
    Surrounding Nations actively plot the destruction of Israel. The psalmis calls on God to act and deliver His people.

  24. 16 Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O Lord.

    OOO LORD THY TENDER MERCIES FOR ALL THAT HAVE BEEN LED ASTRAY AND FOR THOSE THAT CONTINUE TO FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT ALIKE, FOR WE ARE NO BETTER, IF IT’S NOT FOR YOUR BLOOD THAT WAS SHED FOR MY SINS!!! THANK YOU DADDY!!!

  25. The psalmist’s cry should continue to be heard today: ‘Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.’ The world is never silent regarding what it thinks of God’s precepts and his people… so we can’t afford for God to be silent to us. We can’t afford for his preachers of righteousness to be silent regarding God’s will. We can’t afford to be silent ourselves least we start to listen and even be influenced by the contrary messages around us.

    It’s interesting to see the willingness of the many false idolatries to be bound together in their opposition against God and his people. If they truly and earnestly believe in their gods, why is it necessary to strike out… not only to strike out but to do so in concert with a whole host of others who are also in disagreement with what they believe. If there is not anything different about God’s people, then why would all these others ignore their own differences and contradictions to fight together against them?

    We often see the frustrations of the psalmist when God’s hand hasn’t acted against those who oppose them, and perhaps we sometimes feel that way today. It is God’s will however, for all who are willing to come to him… even those who oppose us, those who may have hurt us, those who may have even attached us: just consider Saul. The early church may have prayed for him to be taken out, but God had a greater purpose for his life… so rather than becoming entangled with all those who oppose what we believe, let my desire and prayer join together with the psalmist: ‘ Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.’ Let God continue to speak to me, let his word continue to be preached to me, let me join my voice together with his people and refuse to be silent!

  26. 16 Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O Lord.
    17 Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish:
    18 That men may know that thou, whose name alone is Jehovah, art the most high over all the earth.

    There comes a time in our lives that others are like enemies unto us for a myriad of reasons. It is easy in our flesh to hold a grudge but even as David spoke in the last verses he wanted them to know God.
    No one person or situation is ever worth losing this precious salvation over and not being with Jesus forever. I pray that at those times in my life I can see these people/situations as an opportunity to show the love of Jesus and bring them to one that can save their soul from the depths of hell.

  27. 5 For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee:

    Many times, things just don’t add up. Remember “I AM VICTORIOUS!”
    Greater is He that is in ME, than he that is in the world…

  28. 13 O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind.

    14 As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire;

    15 So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid with thy storm.

    16 Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O Lord.

    17 Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish:

    18 That men may know that thou, whose name alone is Jehovah, art the most high over all the earth

    God would blow his hot breathe of judgement upon them until they would see that the Lord is supreme over all . We must be defeated and humbled before we can have victory .

  29. KEEP not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God. 18. That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JE- HO’- VAH, art the most high over all the earth. You Jesus are the Great Jehovah !!!!

  30. Don’t you hear the uproar of your enemies? Don’t you see that your arrogant enemies are rising up?
    Psalms 83:2 NLT

    How many times do we also tell God, don’t you see my situation or can’t you see that I’m in trouble! We forget in our toughest hours that God Knows and sees everything that is going on in our lives. He has everything under control and He has His timing. We just have to trust Him.

  31. 14 As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire;

    Im still a baby in Christ so when i say “ahhh 🙂 i remember this like yesterday” then it probably really was yesterday.
    Anyways, i love how God speaks to us. What he gave the man of God to preach to us just yesterday about the fire and keeping it going. When we get the Holy Ghost we wanna tell everyone and anyone and anything The dogs the cats the mice the spiders even the roaches. We cant express whats going on but man are we hungry for more. So we just Go. Its very important to keep that going. I can remember being told not to go anywhere to keep it up to keep hunting for that word. Everywhere i turn thpugh God is lookong put for me and leading me to people to feed me like the little baby in Christ i am.

    What im getting to is when we have that fire in us and we express the way God is telling us IT WILL SPREAD. Jonathan Corey Lasley was baptised in Jesus Name in the Clinch river in the middle of winter. Being hungry for the Lord is the only way i could explain him deciding that conviction from the testimony God wanted me to share with him. He felt convicted and Pastor said Go, go with the fire and spread it. Show the real meanimg of Christmas.
    God is so good
    God bless you all!

  32. Oh My God!

    13 O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind.

    This seems to have lost its meaning over the years. It was a cry unto God Almighty that he would recognize the cry for help, but today it has become a slack and relaxed statement. Someone messes up your lunch order…. Oh my God, someone is wearing an outfit that you would never wear…. Oh my God.
    This is not a cry for help but a slap in the face of God. I believe we should stop using the Title of the most high like this. We should hold our God holy and righteous. I don’t want to pass this bad habit to my children so I choose to stop this myself. That way when I say Oh my God they recognize I’m crying or to Jesus and not making a rude comment.

  33. Those that go against God will have their reward. No matter who goes against God, they will fall. Choose you this day whom you will serve. Me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

  34. Josiah: 17 Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish:
    18 That men may know that thou, whose name alone is Jehovah, art the most high over all the earth.
    We reap what we sow. That is why God’s people can be glad because we sow into Jesus’ everlasting, eternal, kingdom. Matthew 6:20-21 says “But lay up yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” This is why I can rejoice because I have eternal rewards. THANK YOU JESUS! I EXALT YOUR NAME! Just like God’s people reap what they sow this world reaps their destruction upon themselves. However we can be a city set on a hill. BLESSED BE JESUS’ NAME! HIS GLORIOUS NAME! THE NAME ABOVE ALL NAMES! WE CAN GO OUTREACH AND GO BE THAT LIGHT! People in this world can be saved by me being the vessel God has called me to be! People in this world can be saved by you being the vessel God has called you to be! SO LET US GO IN THE NAME OF JESUS! BLESSED BE HIS GLORIOUS NAME! LET EVERYTHING THAT HATH BREATH PRAISE THE LORD. PRAISE YE THE LORD!

  35. v18 That men may know that thou, who name alone is JEHOVAH, art the Most High over all the earth.

    HE’S JEHOVAH- SAVIOR, THE ANOINTED ONE! The only who lived up to the meaning of HIS NAME.

  36. 18 That men may know that thou, whose name alone is Jehovah, art the most high over all the earth.

    No other name has all power and authority!
    Your name brings peace.

  37. 18 That men may know that thou, whose name alone is Jehovah, art the most high over all the earth.

    MAndark 16:15
    he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

    Outreaching the lost and spreading the Gospel of Jesus, letting the world know that Jesus has so much more to offer. Our God that we serve is alive and able to save.

  38. 18 That men may know that thou, whose name alone is Jehovah, art the most high over all the earth.

    Reading this Psalm and how David is pleading to God to show His power too the wicked so that they turn to Him, I am reminded of the verses:

    “For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.  So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.” – Romans 14:11‭-‬12

     “Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:  That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;  And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” – Philippians 2:9‭-‬11

    Sometimes it can be frustrating to see so many people that do not serve God, and some who don’t even know God exists. Yet I need to remember that His church is here for a reason! We need to be reaching out to those who are caught up in this world, so they can know God before it is too late. Eventually, every one will confess that Jesus is Lord, yet I want to be sure that I have tried my best to bring as many people to Him before that day so they may have eternal life!

  39. 18 That men may know that thou, whose name alone is Jehovah, art the most high over all the earth.

    Send the Fire

    There is a fire that should be available in every beliver. Yet there is a fire that God sends to preserve His great name! It is a fire that great men and women of the past and present have been able to be apart of because they have aligned themselves and became the agent of the Fire of the Holy Ghost that cause great revival and harvest.

    They put away distractions in an effort to allow God to flow freely through them that His kingdom would and will would be done in this earth. 40 Days of Fire is our opportunity to seek God’s face that His and watch for Him to show himself mighty upon this earth.

  40. 5 For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee:

    The tower of Babel was constructed with the people in unity as one, with one speech. Until God confused the language and scattered the people (Gen 11:9). They were constructing, growing, moving and working for the wrong purpose. They came together under wicked council and stand together. A house divided (Luke 11:17) will fall and one that rises itself against God will fall also. So in order to build and grow the kingdom of God it must be done as one.

  41. 18 That men may know that thou, whose name alone is Jehovah, art the most high over all the earth.

    Praying against the enemy but making sure God gets all the glory. Wr should always remember who is the one that gives us victory.

  42. “For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head. They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.”
    ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭83:2-3‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    Sometimes things go sideways and everyone seems to be against you. Sometimes they truly are against you. Take the counsel of this scripture: TALK TO GOD! The paslmnist did not go around talking and whining. He went straight to God, the source. God is the one who can do something about it. Give it to him.

  43. In this scripture you see the evidence of the very same thing this world has been trying to do even to this day! They’re still trying to eliminate Israel, and they will never be successful in doing this. His word is proven and God will always honor his word and Israel is the apple of his eye. God will not foresaw his people, and Israel will remain…….

    “Stand firm”……..

  44. “Then they will learn that you alone are called the Lord, that you alone are the Most High, supreme over all the earth.”
    ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭83:18‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    Everyone will come to a point in their life to proclaim who the Lord is. We can proclaim is the Alpha Omega, or we can live in a world of deceit.

    Yet all the Earth shall proclaim that He Is GOD.

  45. 2 For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.

    3 They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.

    There are those that love God and sacrifice their lives for Him and there are those who hate His commandments and go fulfill their own will and desires.

  46. O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind.
    Psalms 83:13

    God will not stand for wickedness rising against him or his people. When we call out to him he will be our defender and protector. He will make the enemy like a wheel which is designed to move, and unstable if without brakes. When the winds pick up the wheel will take off. Thank God that he is the anchor of our soul and our root of salvation.

  47. 16 Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O Lord.

    This verse just gave me another prayer for those that come against the church. Fill
    their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O Lord. Because whatever they do, they still need to meet God, and if they can came through to God because of it. God be praised! May the whole world be filled with the Holy Ghost! Even those who at first set themselves against the church like Saul.

  48. 13 Oh my God scatter them like tumbleweed, like chaff before the wind!

    Yes scatter our enemies like tumbleweeds. You see tumbleweeds keep rolling along uncontrollably, they are at the mercy of the wind. They won’t stop until there is no wind or they get embedded against something. Just like sin, it also goes on uncontrollably and are at the mercy of the enemy. It won’t stop until you come to an alter and ask for forgiveness and repent of your sins.

  49. Psalm83:3 ( English Amp) They lay crafty schemes against Your people and consult together against Your hidden and precious ones. Go find your answer in your Bible, Read your word, And than take to Jesus in prayer. Trust and lean on God.

  50. For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head. They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones. They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.
    Psalms 83:2‭-‬4 KJV

    This can be said in today’s age. There are those out there that would see Christians scattered and destroyed. With all the threat of war and bringing down of God’s protected cities: we need to stand together. My prayer is for unification in the church. For all to come in one accord and stand for God and His people. To tear down the strongholds and bring the gospel to the lost. Thank you Jesus.
