What are Psalm 83 Nations?

Psalm 83

Psalm 83:5-8  list 7 nations that will “form an alliance against Israel

Vs 4 says, “Come they say, ‘Let us destroy them as a nation, that the name of Israel be remembered no more

Vs. 5 says “With one mind they plot together; they form an alliance against you

1.) Tents of Edom = Modern Day Southern Jordan
2.) The Ishmaelites = Modern Day Saudi Arabia
        Moab = Modern Day Central Jordan
3.) The Hagrites = Modern Day Egypt
4.) Byblos = Modern Day Northern Lebanon
      Ammon = Modern Day Northern Jordan
   Amalek = Modern Day Sinai Penninsula
5.) Philistia = Modern Day Gaza (Hamas)
People of Tyre = Modern Day Southern Lebanon (Hezbollah)
6 & 7.) Assyria = Modern Day Syria and Iraq

The book of Obadiah gives us some details as to what will happen to these nations…

 15 “The day of the LORD is near for all nations. As you have done, it will be done to you; your deeds will return upon your own head…

17 But on Mount Zion will be deliverance; it will be holy, and the house of Jacob will possess its inheritance.

18 The house of Jacob will be a fire and the house of Joseph a flame; the house of Esau will be stubble, and they will set it on fire and consume it. There will be no survivors from the house of Esau.” The LORD has spoken.

19 People from the Negev will occupy the mountains of Esau, and people from the foothills will possess the land of the Philistines. They will occupy the fields of Ephraim and Samaria, and Benjamin will possess Gilead.


  1. Mt Zion is Jerusalem
  2. The house of Jacob = The Jews
  3. The house of Joseph = The Jews
  4. The house of Esau = The Arabs
  5. There will be no survivors from the house of Esau = Hamas, Hezbollah
  6. People from the Negev = Israel
  7. People from the foothills = Israel
  8. Mountains of Esau = Jordan
  9. The land of the Philistines = Gaza
  10. The fields of Ephraim and Samaria = West Bank
  11. Benjamin = The Jews
  12. Gilead = East bank of Jordan River

 I believe Scripture tells us that the battles of Psalm 83 nations are fought before the battle of Ezekiel 38. These nations fall and Israel expands.

Iran represents the Persian kingdom

Egypt and Saudi Arabia represent the Arab kingdom

Israel represents the Jewish kingdom


What happens to Egypt?  See Isaiah 19

What happens to Ammon? (North Jordan)? See Jeremiah 49:2

What happens to Syria / Damascus? See Isaiah 17

What happens to Iraq? See Isaiah 13:19-20


Isaiah 34:9-10
Edom’s streams will be turned into pitch, her dust into burning sulfur; her land will become blazing pitch! 10 It will not be quenched night and day; its smoke will rise forever. From generation to generation it will lie desolate; no one will ever pass through it again.”

Is Isaiah 34:9-10 a prophecy of Southern Jordan and into Saudi Arabia?

Is the “pitch” the oil of Saudi Arabia? Burning?

 Is Isaiah 17 a prophecy of Assad in Syria taking a (biological or nuclear) shot at Israel (the glory of Jacob) and then Israel returning fire and destroying Damascus?

 “In that day the glory of Jacob will fade; the fat of his body will waste away.”

“Damascus will no longer be a city but will become a heap of ruins.”

Is Zechariah 14:12 a prophecy of nuclear war?

This is the plague with which the LORD will strike all the nations that fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh will rot while they are still standing on their feet, their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongues will rot in their mouths.”
