Composed for Salomon Sulzer. Several early abschrifts with German text exist, including one with German text by Moses Mendelssohn (1729–1786) (the latter published in 1870 by Gotthard.)

There is an (interesting) article on this psalm ("Schubert and Sulzer revisited: a recapitulation of the events leading to Schubert's setting in Hebrew of Psalm XCII, D 953" (pp.47-60) by Elaine Brody in "Schubert Studies: Problems of Style and Chronology" (CUP Archive, Sep 23, 1982, editors Eva Badura-Skoda, Peter Branscombe).
