Michtam

Additional Links

This word occurs in the headings of Psalm 16; 56 - 60. Its meaning is uncertain. The margin of the A.V. reads 'a golden psalm.' Gesenius and others suppose the word michtam to be equivalent to miktab, which in Isaiah 38:9 is translated 'writing,' hence a 'poem, psalm, song.' The LXX translates it 'a writing of David.'
