1: ψάλλω
(Strong's #5567 — Verb — psallo — psal'-lo )

primarily "to twitch, twang," then, "to play a stringed instrument with the fingers," and hence, in the Sept., "to sing with a harp, sing psalms," denotes, in the NT, "to sing a hymn, sing praise;" in Ephesians 5:19 , "making melody" (for the preceding word ado, see SING). Elsewhere it is rendered "sing," Romans 15:9 ; 1 Corinthians 14:15 ; in James 5:13 , RV, "let him sing praise" (AV, "let him sing psalms"). See SING.
