Psalm 151 is the name given colloquially to a short psalm which is found in most copies of the Septuagint (Greek language translation of the Bible) but not in the Hebrew text.

[1]) indicates that it is supernumerary, and no number is affixed to it. Most Biblical scholars consider it to be an addition by the compilers and translators of the Septuagint.
