Many prayers and songs in the biblical book of Psalms have headings that associate them with David. Their actual authorship is uncertain? Islam?s Koran lists David as a prophet (Sura 6), noting in Sura 38 his repentance for his sin with Bathsheba? Michelangelo?s sculpture of David is considered a classic of Renaissance art? The Star of David, a Jewish symbol in recent centuries, appears on the flag of the modern state of Israel? David has been portrayed many times in the movies, by actors including Gregory Peck (David and Bathsheba, 1951), Richard Gere (King David, 1985) and Max von Sydow (the TV movie Solomon, 2005).
