- The Book of David
The Book of Psalms which contains Psalm 54 is also referred to
as the Book of David. David reigned over Judah and Israel
was the second king of the united Kingdom of Israel. King
David is credited with the authorship of many of the Psalms
and the collection is therefore often referred to as the
Book of David.
