Smith's Bible Dictionary

the female of the common stag or Cervus elaphus . It is frequently noticed in the poetical parts of Scripture as emblematic of activity, (Genesis 49:21; Psalms 18:33) gentleness, (Proverbs 5:19) feminine modesty, (Solomon 2:7; 3:5) earnest longing, (Psalms 42:1) and maternal affection. (Jeremiah 14:5) Its shyness and remoteness from the haunts of men are also alluded to, (Job 39:1) and its timidity, causing it to cast its young at the sound of thunder. (Psalms 29:9)

ATS Bible Dictionary

The female of the hart or stag, a species of deer, distinguished for the lightness and elegance of its form. The hind is destitute of horns, like all the females of this class, except the reindeer. In Genesis 49:21, Naphtali is compared to a hind roaming at liberty, or quickly growing up into elegance; while the "goodly words" of Naphtali refer to the future orators, prophets, and poets of the tribe. A faithful and affectionate wife is compared to the hind, Proverbs 5:19, as also are swift and sure-footed heroes, 2 Samuel 22:34 Habakkuk 3:19.

Easton's Bible Dictionary
Hebrews `ayalah (2 Samuel 22:34; Psalm 18:33, etc.) and `ayeleth (Psalm 22, title), the female of the hart or stag. It is referred to as an emblem of activity (Genesis 49:21), gentleness (Proverbs 5:19), feminine modesty (Cant. 2:7; 3:5), earnest longing (Psalm 42:1), timidity (Psalm 29:9). In the title of Psalm 22, the word probably refers to some tune bearing that name.
Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia

The translation of Aijeleth hash-Shahar ('ayyeleth ha-shachar) in the title of Psalm 22, probably the name of some wellknown song to which the psalm was intended to be sung, which possibly had reference to the early habits of the deer tribe in search of water and food, or to the flight of the hind from the hunters in early dawn; or "morning" may symbolize the deliverance from persecution and sorrow.

"The first rays of the morning sun, by which it announces its appearance before being itself visible, are compared to the fork-like antlers of a stag; and this appearance is called, Psalm 22 title. `The hind of the morning,' because those antler rays preceded the red of dawn, which again forms the transition to sunrise" (Delitzsch, Iris. 107).

According to Hengstenberg, the words indicate the subject-matter of the poem, the character, sufferings, and triumph of the person who is set before us. See PSALMS. For an interesting Messianic interpretation see Hood, Christmas Evans, the Preacher of Wild Wales, 92.
