    Clarke's Commentary on Psalms 80:6

    Thou makest us a strife - The neighboring districts have a controversy about us; we are a subject of contention to them. A people so wonderfully preserved, and so wonderfully punished, is a mystery to them. They see in us both the goodness and severity of God. Or, all the neighboring nations join together to malign and execrate us. We are hated by all; derided and cursed by all.

    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 80:6

    Thou makest us a strife - An occasion of strife or wrangling; that is, of strife among themselves, to see who will get the most of our spoils; or of contention, to see which could do most to aggravate their sufferings, and to bring disgrace and contempt upon them. They were emulous with each other in the work of desolation and ruin.

    Unto our neighbors - The surrounding nations. See Psalm 79:4.

    And our enemies laugh among themselves - Over our calamities. They exult; they glory; they triumph in our ruin.
