Who was the human author of your very favorite psalm?

In this poll, you can choose from a number of inspired writers.

It would make for a more edifying poll, however, if you would share what your very favorite psalm is. If you have two or three that are perhaps tied, you are free to share them, too.

My favorite psalm is written by David, Psalm 86, personally.  I read this very often when I visit folks, along with 27 and 63.

I've been preaching through the psalms since the fall of 2015 and just finished Psalm 86 last Sunday. What a powerful prayer for revival! That means I've still got 64 psalms left to study, so my favorite may still change, but I love Psalm 16, especially David's confession that Yahweh is his inheritance. Meditating on this psalm has taught me much about contentment.

Always loved Asaph's literary style. He (and/or his friends), are a lot more verbally expressive than David, which suits my poetic tastes well.

We have (at least for now) the same favorite Psalm.  I read this frequently, and it seems most believers are unfamiliar with it.  The real crescendo, I think, is a simple thought: "You alone are God!"

So comforting and encouraging!

I had a hard time checking the "David" box because the Psalms of the sons of Korah are my favorite group.  But my very favorite few psalms were written by David.   I did a series on the Psalms of the Asaph group and the Psalms of Korah group, and have preached individual Psalms of David; they are all so good, but Korah's is my favorite group.
