King David wrote many of the Psalms.  He was born Three thousand fifty-two years ago in ancient Israel. 

In his early life he worked as a shepherd with a special gift of music.  Through his life he experienced all the trials, hardships and joys that each of us experience in our life. 

Each evening he placed a harp above his bed which woke him gently with sounds of music as the wind blew through the strings.  Through inspiration, he wrote the Hebrew words of psalms which have been sung, danced, whispered and declared for thousands of years in all languages - touching the soul in miraculous ways.  

Other sages who contributed to the book of psalms include: Moses (Psalm 90), Asaph, Ethan the Ezrahite, Solomon, Korach, and Adam.
