[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.

Blessed are You — I thank You, O Yahuah, for […], You made mighty without number.
[…] and to praise Your name by doing wonders exceedingly […] without ceasing […]

[*Estimated two verses missing]
[…] by Your will all will occur; And by the design of Your heart all is established.
Without You nothing will be ordained, as nothing can occur to exist except by Your will.
None can comprehend the depths of Your wisdom, and the secret counsel of Your mysteries no one can observe. •
What then is man (Adam) that is but earth, [for] from dust he was formed and to dust he returns;
That You should give him to understand such marvels, and make known to him the counsel of Your truth? •
Dust and ashes that I am, What can I devise unless You desire it? —And what can I consider of myself apart from Your will?
What strength shall I have unless You keep me upright? And how shall I understand unless by the spirit which You have shaped for me?
What can I say unless You open my mouth? And how can I answer unless You enlighten me? •
Behold, You are Prince of gods, and King of the majestic ones: Lord of every spirit, and Ruler of all creatures.
Apart from You nothing is done, nor is there any knowing without Your will.
Beside You, there is nothing, and nothing can compare — nor can anyone approach You in strength.
In the presence of Your glory there is nothing, as to Your might there is no price. •
Who among the great and celebrated creatures of Your wonder can maintain the strength to stand in the presence of Your glory?
—What then is he, who returns to his dust that he could summon up the power?
For Your glory’s sake alone have You done all these things.
