Midrash Tehillim, also referred to as Midrash Shocher Tov, is a midrash on the Book of Psalms. The work consists of two sections that are distinct in their language and style: the first and oldest section contains midrashim on Psalms 1–118. The second section, added at a later point offers midrashim on Psalms 119–150. Both sections encompass a range of styles and interpretation methods. The precise editors, dates, and places of composition are subject to debate.
