The composer of Psalm 83 was likely a descendant of the Levite Asaph, a contemporary of King David. This psalm was written during a time when enemy nations were a threat to Jehovah’s people.

83:1-5, 16

  • In his prayer, the psalmist focused on Jehovah’s name and sovereignty rather than on his personal safety

  • Today, God’s servants continue to face one attack after another. Our faithful endurance brings honor to Jehovah


  • Jehovah wants us to know his name

  • We must show through our actions that Jehovah is the most important Person in our life
