83:12 Treat their great men like Oreb and Zeeb
The psalm lists eleven enemies of Israel who, throughout history, have sought to destroy the Nation of Israel. Asaf seeks Hashem’s vengeance, and asks that He come down in a grand display of omnipotence to smite all of Israel’s enemies. He invokes the incidents recorded in Sefer Shoftim, when the Lord helped the judges destroy all the arrogant leaders of their adversaries. Oreb and Zeeb were two princes of Midian who were killed by Gidon during the defeat of the Midianites recorded in Sefer Shoftim (7:25), while Zebah and Zalmunna were two kings of Midian killed during this war as well (8:10-12).
