Aijeleth Shahar

Meaning: hind (deer) of the dawn.

This poetic name is found in the title of Ps. 22. It is probably the name of some song or tune to the measure of which the psalm was to be chanted. Some, however, believe the name is of some instrument of music, or an allegorical allusion to the subject of the psalm.
