Psalm 73 (title) Asaph. Psalm 73 is the first of eleven psalms (73–83) written by Asaph, an important musician in the temple during the times of David and Solomon. One other psalm attributed to Asaph is Psalm 50. Asaph was not only one of the chief musicians, but was recognized also as a prophet (II Chronicles 5:12; 29:30), probably because of his twelve inspired psalms.
