(4) Timbrel and dance.--See Psalm 149:3.

Stringed instruments.--Minnim. Literally, parts, so threads, so here, as in LXX. and Vulg., "with" or "on strings." (See Note, Psalm 45:9.)

Organs.--Heb., 'ugab, which has been variously identified with the syrinx, or Pan's pipes, of the Greeks, with the "bagpipe," and even with a rude instrument embodying the principle of the modern organ. (See Bible Educator, 2:70, 183, 229.)

Verse 4. - Praise him with the timbrel and dance (comp. Psalm 149:3). Praise him with stringed instruments and organs; literally, with strings and pipe. "Organs" are, of course, out of the question. The "pipe" intended is probably the double pipe so often represented on the monuments of Egypt, Assyria, and Phoenicia.
