While the Book of T’hilim was composed mainly by King David, the Gemara (Maseches Bava Basra 14b) enumerates ten authors who composed individual psalms other than King David. The Gemara speaks of these men as “Asarah Z’keinim,” ten great scholars endowed with profound wisdom and prophetic insight, which enabled them to compose such sacred texts. Psalm 139 was attributed to Adam HaRishon. Another psalm was composed by King Malki-Tzedek. Psalm 89 is attributed to Avraham Avinu. There are 11 hymns composed by Moshe Rabbeinu. There are several chants composed by the L’vi’im who officiated as singers in the Beis HaMikdash.
