Ps 83:5

83:5 they. The nations involved in the plot against Israel are listed in vv. 6–8. Attempts have been made to identify the historical situation behind the psalm, but no time period is known in which all of these enemies were actively hostile toward Israel at the same time. The closest is Jehoshaphat’s war recorded in 2 Chr. 20, but there is no mention of Assyria there.
