Mention of Psalms in Koran

I got the feeling from my reading that the previous prophets were true but that their message was somehow corrupted. There are at least three verses in the Qur’an which mention the Psalms. We know from various ancient fragments that what we possess of the Psalms is very accurate and unchanged from ancient times. And yet not a single Psalm (to my knowledge) is repeated in the Qur’an or used in mosques.

The word(s) “psalm” appears 3 time(s) in 3 verse(s) in Quran in M. Khan translation.

(1) Verily, We have sent the revelation to you (O Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) as We sent the revelation to Nuh (Noah) and the Prophets after him; We (also) sent the revelation to Ibrahim (Abraham), Isma’il (Ishmael), Ishaq (Isaac), Ya’qub (Jacob), and Al-Asbat [the offspring of the twelve sons of Ya’qub (Jacob)], ‘Îsa (Jesus), Ayyub (Job), Yunus (Jonah), Harun (Aaron), and Sulaiman (Solomon); and to Dawud (David) We gave the Zabur (psalms).
( سورة النساء , An-Nisa, Chapter #4, Verse #163)
(Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu, Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Melayu, German, Bosnian, Russian)

(2) And your Lord knows best all who are in the heavens and the earth. And indeed, We have preferred some of the Prophets above others, and to Dawud (David) We gave the Zabur (psalms).
( سورة الإسراء , Al-Isra, Chapter #17, Verse #55)
(Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu, Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Melayu, German, Bosnian, Russian)

(3) And indeed We have written in Az-Zabur [i.e. all the revealed Holy Books – the Taurat (Torah), the Injeel (Gospel), the psalms, the Qur’an,] after (We have already written in) Al-Lauh Al-Mahfuz (the Book that is in the heaven with Allah), that My righteous slaves shall inherit the land (i.e. the land of Paradise).
( سورة الأنبياء , Al-Anbiya, Chapter #21, Verse #105)
(Arabic, Transliteration, Urdu, Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Picthal, Mohsin Khan, French, Spanish, Indonesian, Melayu, German, Bosnian, Russian)

AND HERE IS MENTION OF “PSALM” IN HADITH:

The word “zabur” appear 2 time(s) in 1 hadith(s) in Bukhari translation.
(1) Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, “The reciting of the zabur (i.e. Psalms) was made easy for David. He used to order that his riding animals be saddled, and would finish reciting the zabur before they were saddled. And he would never eat except from the earnings of his manual work.” (Book #55, Hadith #628)
