The Psalms written by King David

DavidI used to think Psalm is a book in the bible and nothing more. I also thought the entire book of Psalms in the bible was written by King David. That is untrue.

King David wrote 73 of the 150 psalms in the bible. Three other psalms were attributed to him:

  1. Psalm 2, attributed to David by Act 4:24-26
  2. Psalm 10, commonly attributed to him as a continuation of Psalm 9
  3. Psalm 95 attributed to him by Hebrew 4:7
