Reference: Aijeleth Shahar


hind of the dawn, a name 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, understand by the name some instrument of music, or an allegorical allusion to the subject of the psalm.


Hebrew ayyeleth hasshachar, "the hind of the morning dawn" (title of Psalm 22). Aben Ezra explains as the name of the melody to which the psalm was to be sung, equivalent to tide rising sun, some well known tune. Rather, allegorical allusion to the subject. The hind symbolizes a lovely and innocent one hounded to death, as the bulls, lions, dogs in the psalm are the persecutors. The unusual Heb., Ps 22:19, ejulathi, "my strength," alludes to aijeleth, "the hind," weak in itself but having Jehovah for its strength. The morning dawn represents joy bursting forth after affliction; Messiah is alluded to, His deep sorrow (Ps 22:1-21) passes to triumphant joy (Ps 22:21-31).

Ai'jeleth Sha'har

This occurs in the title of Ps. 22: and signifies 'the hind of the morning,' margin. May not its reference be to the resurrection of the Lord after the cross? The Targum explains it as signifying 'the morning oblation of the lamb.' If this is correct, the offering of the lamb stands in strong contrast to the 'bulls of Bashan ' roaring like a lion, and 'the dogs' that compassed the patient victim in the Psalm. Modern critics see nothing more in the words than the name of some tune to which the Psalm was set.
