Abstract In Psalm cxlv the Taw-verse makes an inclusion with the title. This is the more remarkable since only this psalm has in its title the word tehillā. As “a song of praise of David”, Psalm cxlv recalls the books of Chronicles, especially in showing David's part in the praise of God. The text complies with the cultic situation in David's time as portrayed in Chronicles. So Psalm cxlv appears to be a text written ex persona Davidis. As such, it was meant to be an introduction to Psalms cxlvi-cl.
