Psalms 83:12

Psalms 83:12

Who said
Not the kings and princes of Midian just mentioned, but the confederate enemies of Israel, named ( Psalms 83:6-8 ) , to whom the like things are wished as to the Midianites and others, because they said what follows:

let us take to ourselves the houses of God in possession;
not only the temple, which was eminently the house of God, but all the habitations of the Israelites in Jerusalem, and other places, where the Lord vouchsafed to dwell; unless this should be ironically spoken by their enemies calling them so, because they pretended, as they reckoned it, to have and to hold them by the gift of God; whereas, of right, they belonged to them, at least some of them: such a claim was made by the Ammonites in the times of Jephthah, ( Judges 11:13 ) , and to dispossess the Israelites was the intention of the Ammonites and Moabites in the times of Jehoshaphat, ( 2 Chronicles 20:10 2 Chronicles 20:11 ) .
