Neginah, Neginoth

Resource Toolbox
Additional Links
(neh gee' nuh, nehg' ih nahth) Neginoth, the plural form of Neginah, is used as a technical term in the superscriptions of several psalms (Psalm 4:1 , Psalm 6:1 , Psalm 54-55 , Psalm 61:1 , Psalm 67:1 , Psalm 76:1 ) and as the subscription of Habakkuk 3:19 . The term is generally understood to specify the instrumentation needed for performance, “with stringed instruments” (compare Isaiah 38:20 ; Lamentations 5:14 ). Other references suggest that neginah designates a taunt song ( Job 30:9 ; Psalm 69:12 ; Lamentations 3:14 ).
