inherit all nations
82:8 inherit all nations. Human judges are fallible and sometimes even corrupt, though they stand in the place of the divine Judge as they in principle represent Him in administering justice. One day, however, He who is to inherit the nations (Psalm 2:8) will come to judge the whole world in perfect justice (John 5:22,30).
Psalm 83 (title) Asaph. See note on Psalm 66 (title). This is the last of the twelve psalms of Asaph.
