Refute Amir Tsarfati's blind ignorance regarding Pslam 83 and Psalm 120:5-7


To display another brilliant examples of Amir Tsarfati's blind ignorance let's take a look at what he says about the Psalm 83 war.  Note he is also ignorant and using the Ezekiel 38, 39 war in his literature and speaking engagements to make merchandise of his sheeple.  

The Ezekiel 38/39 Wars:

I will respond to Amir's statements in red letter:

Tsarfati quote from today on TELEGRAM 386K Followers.

Quote: "There are three primary reasons why it is clear to me that Psalm 83 is not being fulfilled now but was already realized 75 years ago in 1948 when Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt and even Iraq were attacking the new born nation that just restored the name of Israel."

See my commentary below that Psalm 83 could not possibly have been fulfilled in 1948.

This (current Israeli-Palestinian war) isn't it. Today we have peace with Jordan and Egypt. What we are watching now is the reality of Pslam 120:5-7.

Woe is me that I dwell in Meshech, that I dwell among the tents of Kedar! My soul has dwelt too long with one who hates peace. I am for peace. But when I speak, they are for war. "  End Quote.

Shocking that Tsarfati's Post had literally thousands of approvals from his followers. 

Psalm 120

King James Version

5 Woe is me, that I sojourn in Mesech, that I dwell in the tents of Kedar!

6 My soul hath long dwelt with him that hateth peace.

7 I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war.

Dwell and Sojourn in this context are worlds apart. Sojourn means literally to exist as a stranger.  H1481 gur Hebrew A WALKING MAN TRAVELING THROUGH A FOREIGN LAND.   MESECH =   In Mesech - in context enemies.  and IN the tents of Kedar living among enemies. 

Not among,. In the tents is an expression to be cut off from worshipping the true God which as a sojourner David was expressing this living among his own people as his enemies. Read the CONTEXT.  Wake up People.  This is NOT Prophecy related to the Israeli-Palenstian War of today.

Most importantly regarding Psalm 120 which I failed to discuss is although David is talking about himself as a Sojourner amongst his own people, in reality, this along with many of David's writings in Psalm is a PROPHETIC TYPE of Jesus Christ NOT accepted by his own. He came to His own and His own received Him NOT. John 1:11
King James Version
11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.

Study this out for yourself:
Of the Philistines, among whom he sojourned for a time. But he did not seek peace with them, but sought their ruin, as the event showed; nor did they wage war against him, whilst he lived peaceably among them. Or rather,

2. The courtiers and soldiers of Saul, and the generality of the Israelites, who, to curry favour with Saul, sought David’s ruin, and that many times by treachery and pretences of friendship; of which he oft complains in this book; whom as he elsewhere calls heathen, as Psalm 9:5 59:5, it is not strange if he compares them here to the savage Arabians. And amongst such persons David was oft forced to sojourn in Saul’s time, and with them he sought peace by all ways possible; but they hated peace, and the more he pursued peace, the more eagerly did they prosecute the war, as it here follows.

Here is another quote from him posted in his website:

Why I Believe We are Not Watching the Fulfillment of Psalm 83 - Behold Israel

"Many have contacted me recently asking if Israel’s current perilous situation could bring about the fulfillment of Psalm 83. I tell them no. Why? Primarily because Psalm 83 was already fulfilled 75 years ago.

The psalmist Asaph penned a prophetic song about a future time when countries would unite to wipe Israel from the face of the earth. He wrote:

Do not keep silent, O God!
Do not hold Your peace,
And do not be still, O God!
For behold, Your enemies make a tumult;
And those who hate You have lifted up their head.
They have taken crafty counsel against Your people,
And consulted together against Your sheltered ones.
They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation,
That the name of Israel may be remembered no more.” (Psalm 83:1-4)

My commentary:

Firstly:  Amir as do many Messianic Jews, use the interlinear Hebrew Bible translation and other perverted translations. In this particular quote Amir is using the NKJV.  See Brother Jon's extensive study and related links to the perversion of the NKJV.

In this small example notice that Mr. Hebrew speaker Amir uses the word SILENT from NKJV - Interlinear Hebrew Strongs H2790  charash.  Amir thinks this really means to be silent. His ignorance is astounding as we see he does NOT understand the context.  If you wonder why the King James Bible uses the  word PEACE and not SILENT.  Look up the Hebrew Lexicon 2211 in the correct context this prophecy is not talking about God being Silent no more than it is talking about engraving in wood.  But rather This is a powerful prophetic plan of God removing PEACE by unleashing his plan to destroy these enemies of Israel. 

This harmonizes with PEACE and Safety. Israel gains victory by the hand of God during the first part of the Tribulation when all hell breaks out in World War 3 - The Red Horse.  The inner loop of enemies are destroyed.  

The AntiChrist will sign a 7 year PEACE AGREEMENT  (most likely a revision of the current Abrahamic Peace Accord).  After Israel will be desperate to find PEACE after the Psalm 83 war.  In fact the entire world will be desperately seeking peace after WW3 .  Imagine each area of the world battling and killing each other numbering in the millions.  Note: Following will be the BLACK horse (starvation), and Gray horse  (pestilance). 

The remaining group led by the Antichrist and ultimately against Jesus Christ are destroyed at Armageddon in the Ezekiel 39 War. Revelation 19.   Followed by Satan being destroyed with the army after the Millennial Kingdom of Ezekiel 38 War.  Revelation 20.  See my studies in links below. 

This translation is not reliable and does not follow with the King James Bible.  Read my extensive studies on the King James Bible as the final authority of God's word. 

Psalm 83 is not saying the opening lines Amir tells you. Read the syntax carefully with the direct Hebrew Interlinear and the King James Bible.  One example:  Your shelter ones is another example.

The rest of the Psalm goes on to mention the parties aligning against Israel and calls on God to supernaturally rescue His people from the coming assault. Many see the fulfillment of this prophecy in Israel’s current dangerous state. They hear voices calling for the destruction of the nation and read the reports of 250,000 missiles aimed across the borders into the country. On the surface, a prophetic fulfillment certainly seems plausible. However, when you closely examine the facts, it becomes evident that this cannot be the Psalm 83 war. There are three primary reasons why it is clear to me that Psalm 83 is not being fulfilled now but was already realized 75 years ago in 1948.

Agree the current events are NOT Psalm 83, but they are a foreshadow of what is to come soon.  See my details below on why Psalm 83 could not have been in 1948:  I will respond to his points in red:

The Name

Psalm 83 is about ensuring that the name “Israel” remains in the dustbin of history. After suppressing the Bar Kokhba revolt in AD 136, the Romans were tired of Jewish uprisings. In an attempt to break down Jewish identity, Jerusalem was renamed Aelia Capitolina and Judea was renamed Syria Palestina. At that moment, the name of Israel disappeared, and it remained gone for over 1800 years. Then, suddenly, the State of Israel was created in a day on May 14, 1948. Immediately, the surrounding nations rose up against them. The name “Israel” had returned, but they were determined that it still “be remembered no more.”

What?  Psalm 83 is NOT about ensuring the name Israel remains in the dustbin of history.  There has always been a pogrom running to wipe out Israel, especially after 1948. 

The Timing

Psalm 83 is about a war, but that war took place 75 years ago. When the State of Israel was born, all the neighboring states armed themselves and attacked. What was their goal? They wanted to kill the baby before it had a chance to take its first breath. They wanted to “cut them off from being a nation.” At first, no one stood with Israel. Not even the American State Department believed that it should be recognized. But President Harry Truman surprised them all by being the first world leader to accept the existence of this newfound nation. I believe that America has received untold blessings from the Father because of this move. Despite the best efforts of Israel’s enemies, they were no match for an all-powerful God who was fulfilling His promises to the tiny nation. As in Psalm 83, the people called out for divine assistance, and it was given.

No doubt we saw the prelude and shadow in 1948. This same pogrom has been playing out against the Hebrews since Abraham entered Canaan. Honestly do your followers not read their bibles?

The Perpetrators

This is where today’s situation strays the farthest from Psalm 83. In the biblical prophecy, we read of nation after nation rising up against Israel. In 1948, Egypt, Transjordan, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, and Yemen all stood against the new state. 

In 1948, Egypt, Transjordan, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, and Yemen all stood against the new state.  No, this is not true. Most of the world stood against establishing (reestablishing) a Jewish nation going back to the 1917 Balfour agreement. 

In today’s scenario, there is only one country coming against Israel – Iran. In Syria, it is not Bashar al-Assad’s government aiming the missiles at Israel. It is the many Iranian proxy militias. Missiles are ready to be fired from Lebanon, but it is not the Lebanese military manning them. It is Hezbollah, a proxy terrorist organization supported by Iran. In Iraq, it is again Iranian proxy terrorist militias targeting their missiles at Israel.

This is absurd. Only one country coming against Israel?  I pray people can see the insanity of Tsarfati's remarks. 

Most of the nations surrounding Israel despise Iran’s militias and the Islamic regime’s interference in their government and society. In fact, the leaders of these nations are speaking out against this potential attack. Lebanon’s Prime Minister Najib Mikati denounced any launch of rockets toward Israel from within his country. The Prime Minister of Iraq, Mohammed Shia’ Al-Sudani, strongly condemned the use of Iraqi territory to launch any regional aggressions at the behest of Iran.

Finally, if we look at a number of the specific nations mentioned, we see they just don’t fit the Psalm 83 scenario. Jordan and Egypt are mentioned in the prophecy using their biblical names. Currently, they both have peace treaties with Israel. Lebanon and Syria are also mentioned, yet today they are so dysfunctional that they are barely existing as sovereign, independent countries. In contrast to the others, Yemen isn’t mentioned at all in the prophecy, yet we still find it as part of the proxies that are threatening Israel. Psalm 83 is the gathering of the nations against Israel. What we see today is just one nation gathering its many militias against the country.

So, what is happening today? If anything, rather than an already fulfilled Psalm 83 being played out, I see a buildup to Ezekiel 38. Alliances are being made and weapons are being distributed in preparation for Russia, Iran, Turkey, and the others to finally trigger their attack. Am I saying this is the Ezekiel 38 war? No. Could it be related to it? I believe it is likely.

End Quote.

I have previously addressed the Psalm 83 war not happening in this era or in the past but rather during the Tribulation before the Ezekiel 38 and 39 Wars.

To show the absurdity

EDOM – Jordan (southern part)
ISHMAELITES – Father of Arabs generally
MOAB – Jordan (central part)
GEBAL – Lebanon
AMMON – Jordan (northern part)
AMALEK – Sinai area (Egypt)
PHILISTIA – Gaza area
TYRE – Lebanon
ASSYRIA – Parts of Syria and Iraq

Just look at these countries mentioned in Psalm 83 and match Amir's comments with these countries and their enmity against Israel.  DOES HE NOT REALIZE GAZA? Syria? Iraq? Iraq wasn't even a major player in 1948. Gaza strip Philistia? HAMAS?   

Here are additional points to address Tsarfati's comments.

Amir knows his followers or the vast majority of them do not actually take time to study these scriptures for themselves.  As all false teachers he spouts off the current flavor of the month of Evangelical circles that uses both perverted bible translations and NON historical facts. 

Psalm 83 will happen in the future sometime soon after the Beginning of the Tribulation.  What we are witnessing now in this current Israeli - Palestinian war is the prelude to this prophetic war.

Before I begin further, just stop for a moment and ask yourself this question.

Are all the countries listed in Psalm 83 - the same countries that Amir says are there?   

The answer is No.  

Read notes that prove the countries were not at all involved in 1948.

Question two:

Was Israel living in Peace after 1948?

No. Israel was NOT even existing as a nation.

See note 2 below on Peace must be established before the Ezekiel 38 and 39 WARS.  Peace is established after Psalm 83.

Question three:  Did God wipe out; i.e., completely annihilate by divine intervention the countries that tried to destroy Israel in 1948?  Let's say Egypt truly is one of the countries. Was Egypt obliterated by FIRE from God?  (Note: If this is exactly how these countries will be destroyed.)

The answer is No.  

Read notes describing Psalm 83 and God's divine intervention to utterly destroy these nations. 

Does end time prophetic events of the Prophets harmonize with the Psalm 83 war taking place during the Tribulation and NOT in 1948?

Psalm 82:8 Tells us clearly This is God's Judgment; for thou shall inherit all nations:

Psalm 83 King James Bible

Psalms 83:1

“(A Song or Psalm of Asaph.) Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.”

King James Version (KJV)

22 For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.

33 They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.

44 They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.

55 For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee:

66 The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes;

77 Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre;

88 Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah.

99 Do unto them as unto the Midianites; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook of Kison:

1010Which perished at Endor: they became as dung for the earth.

1111 Make their nobles like Oreb, and like Zeeb: yea, all their princes as Zebah, and as Zalmunna:

1212 Who said, Let us take to ourselves the houses of God in possession.

1313 O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind.

1414 As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire;

1515 So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid with thy storm.

1616 Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O LORD.

1717 Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish:

1818 That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth.


However, a scenario for Psalm 83 (referred to in this paper as the Psalm 83 Theory) has been proposed in a number of books and on several websites that essentially goes like this: 1. MISSING NATIONS:  2. MISSING SECURITY: A prerequisite for the Magog Invasion is that Israel must be “living securely”. (Eze. 38:8) Since Israel is not dwelling in security today because of the Psalm 83 enemy nations which surround it, those nations must be removed as a barrier to Israel’s security before Magog can happen. 

Thus, Israel must defeat the Psalm 83 nations before the Magog-Islamic invasion of Israel can occur. 3. TIMING: Therefore, Israel will attack and defeat the Psalm 83 nations—a Pre-Magog event. 4. In the process Israel will capture and establish secure boundaries for themselves over all of the Arab lands promised to Israel by God in Genesis 15:18-21.  5. As a result of this conquest of the entire Middle East, the Israeli Defense Forces become the “exceeding great army” of Ezekiel 37:10. 6. Finally, Israel will become the target of the Magog-Islamic forces, which will covet the vast Arab oil fields Israel acquired as war-spoil from its defeat of the Psalm 83 nations—and only then will the prophecy of Ezekiel 38-39 be fulfilled. Will this Psalm 83 theory fit the scrutiny of Scripture? We will take a Biblical look. 

How Tsarfati most likely copied notes from Bill Salus and or Dr. Ice and the errors he made regarding the countries involved with Psalm 83.

Jordan, Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and the Palestinian peoples, will very soon join forces to attack Israel.

Further, according to Salus, Israel will overcome this attack, ultimately engaging in a conquest of these nations, occupying them and vastly expanding her borders. According to Salus:

“Because of this Israeli conquest over the inner circle of the core surrounding Arab populations of Palestinians, Syrians, Saudi Arabians, Egyptians, Lebanese, and Jordanians, Israel’s borders are enlarged, prosperity increases, and national stature is enhanced.”

Of course, for those familiar with the region, the idea of Israel actually occupying Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Saudi Arabia is quite a wild, if not a completely impossible scenario to imagine. Yet many students of prophecy have fully accepted this story line and are even eagerly anticipating its imminent fulfillment.

While there are many problems with this interpretation, on both a practical as well as an exegetical basis, one of its most glaring problems is that some of the key nations identified by Salus are simply are not supportable by the historical or biblical record.

The first nation not included in the Psalm 83 coalition is Egypt.

The Psalm 83 Event God is implored in this prayerful Psalm to judge certain long standing enemies of Israel in the war-like manner by which He judged other ancient foes. The nations involved, with their modern place-names, are: Edom, Moab, Gebal & Ammon {Jordan}; Ishmaelites &  Hagrites [Saudi Arabia]; Amalek [Egypt]; Philistia [Gaza, Palestine]; Tyre [Lebanon]; Assyria [Syria, Iraq]; Children of Lot [scattered thru Mideast]. The prayer is prophetic because it is embedded in an end-timeframe (many turn to the Lord, v. 16), &  their defeat is “forever” (v. 17), and it is in a day when the Lord’s Name will be recognized by these nations as the Only One (v. 18). The implication is that the prayer will be answered in the future, a prophecy as yet unfulfilled.  

Psalm 83 is a Holy Spirit-inspired prayer. As such, it is a prayer that will be answered as requested. The certainty of the answer to this prayer makes the future answer a prophecy.

Note 2:

A prerequisite for the Magog Invasion is that Israel must be “living securely” (Ez 38:8). When they say Peace and Safety. 1 Thessalonians 5:2 KJB.  As my studies show, the Ezekiel 38 and 39 wars will happen at the end of the Tribulation. 

Immediately after the Tribulation begins, the Antichrist will come on the scene. There will be a series of SEAL judgments that happen in succession. This second SEAL the RED HORSE will be global war.  As part of this. The immediate neighbors around Israel will immediately pounce on her.  While all of this happening there will be global war taking place WW3. God will intervene and Israel's immediate neighbors who are trying to destroy Israel will be divinely wiped out Psalm 83: verse:

 Which will happen after the end of the Tribulation after the PEACE COVENANT with Death has been violated by the AC) the end of the Since Israel is not dwelling in security today because of the Psalm 83 enemy nations which surround it, those nations must be removed as a barrier to Israel’s security before Magog can happen. 


  1. Most importantly regarding Psalm 120 which I failed to discuss is although David is talking about himself as a Sojourner amongst his own people, in reality, this along with many of David's writings in Psalm is a PROPHETIC TYPE of Jesus Christ NOT accepted by his own. He came to His own and His own received Him NOT. John 1:11
    King James Version
    11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.

  2. Amir Tsarfati left me with the undeniable perception that he is AGAINST the King James Bible once in an interview on Youtube. It was a livestream and questions were coming through the comments live. He picked one out which condemned the new versions when he suddenly got ANGRY at the commenter. His demeanor changed completely then and there. It was creepy. I was prepared for him to begin uttering profanity he was so angry. I thought to myself, what in the world is he getting so angry about? That God preserved His ONLY written word for the English speaking people of the last days of the age of Grace and He preserved only ONE written word? Or that he was guilty of defending it?
    That has stuck with me since first hearing it. Also, as I learn and grow in God’s Grace and Knowledge, I keep finding MORE and CRITICAL changes that the new versions all stick to and which change the meaning of the text substantially. For example, in Revelation 1:6 KJV, "And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father..." God AND HIS FATHER. Or, Jesus Christ (God) and His Father, correct?
    Look at the NIV: "unto His God and Father". All of the new versions do this except the Berean (as far as I could see). There are thousands more like this in the counterfeits. This is just another stamp of GUILT that the so-called "modern" versions COUNTERFEIT God's written word! Why are so many people who Name the Name which is above every name and claim to be lovers of TRUTH, not only overlook the controversies of the new versions (which I'm certain they know about) but CONDEMN those who point them out???
    Many high profile Christian speakers in this age neglect that God's ONLY written word, which He has preserved by His Own HAND has been counterfeited so very many times and moreover USED as doctrine, dogmatically defending them against the only REAL written word. Every year, more counterfeits are published by wicked publishing companies like Zondervan, owned by HarperCollins which is owned by the evil media mogul Rupert Murdoch.
    They are traded in the world market for filthy lucre; entire empires built with the proceeds. God's written word, the KJV Bible is FREE for the masses and was never intended to draw a profit, only souls. HarperCollins is the publishing company which prints THE SATANIC RITUALS which roll off the presses to the wicked. How can God's written word exist side by side in such wickedness? Answer: It can't. This is a continuous dilemma for me when hearing good teachers use corrupt versions and it compels me to ask the question, why?

    1. Thank you for your comment. Yes, you wouldn't believe how many lost children defend and attack me for calling out Amir whose name in Arabic means PRINCE or RULER. The fake Jew of the synagogue of Satan. He and his kind are lost blind guides of the Laodicean Church leading the blind into a pit.
