Commentary: Asaph is the author of all three of today’s psalms. Psalm 81 celebrates the Lord, possible describing a celebration during the Feast of Tabernacles (a/k/a the Feast of Trumpets). It is a reminder of the saving grace of the Lord and a warning to those who turn from Him. Psalm 82 address judges and how they should view the law. Psalm 83 is a bit of a mystery, as the names mentioned have been lost to history. The psalm is a cry for judgement on those who stand against God.
