[It is always the general rule of thumb not to solely take the author’s word throughout these studies, but to pray and seek the face of Yahuah for one’s self, and let the Spirit lead you into all truth (John 16:13-15).]
The numbering of these psalms of course should not be accounted as per se “official”. Following suit with the commonly known apocryphal Psalms 151-160; these psalms also plucked from the Dead Sea Scrolls, have different numbering depending on the original source you refer to (e.g. Psalms 151-155 being canonized in the Syriac, are not necessarily numbered as the same psalms when referring to the commonly accepted collective of Psalms 151-160). For the sake of simple clarity, continuing on in the Psalm 161 chronological general collective seems to be the only obvious step to move forward in, in an all-sincere attempt to rightfully divide, preserve, and freely share what is obviously Yahuah’s Inspired written Word.

Translator’s Note: It can not be fully discerned in all confidence David was indeed the author of this Psalm; yet considering in what little of the text has survived — and its contextual place found within the Thanksgiving Scroll — the general tone of this Psalm, in all honesty, seems to suggest he was. There simply isn’t enough specific content to cross-reference (as we can amazingly do within the Thanksgiving Scroll!) or personally verify.
