Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

אַיֶּלֶת f. i.q. אַיָּלָה (to which it is as a const.) hind, a loving address of a woman, Proverbs 5:19. It is hard to be explained what it means in the title of Psa 22:1-31, עַל־אַיֶּלֶת הַשַּׁחַר “on the hind of the dawn.” These words appear to me to be the name of some poem, to the tune of which the psalm was to be sung. Comp. קֶשֶׁת 2Sa 1:1-27. “Hind of the dawn,” prob. was the morning sun itself shedding its first beams, which the Arabians call gazelle; comparing, according to the use of the language, the rays to horns (see קֶרֶן ). See Schultens on Job, p. 1193; on Har. Cons. v. p. 163.
