meditation; consideration

Smith's Bible Dictionary
Higgaion

(meditation), a word which occurs three times in the book of Psalms -- (Psalms 9:16; 19:14; 92:3) (margin). The word has two meanings, one of a general character, implying thought; reflection , and another, in (Psalms 9:16) and Psal 92:3 Of a technical nature, the precise meaning of which cannot at this distance of time be determined. (Canon Cook says that it probably means an interlude giving musical expression to the feelings suggested by the preceding words.--ED.)

ATS Bible Dictionary
Higgaion

In Psalm 9:16, is supposed to indicate a pause in the singing of the Psalm, for meditation, probably with an instrumental interlude.

Easton's Bible Dictionary
In Psalm 92:3 means the murmuring tone of the harp. In Psalm 9:16 it is a musical sign, denoting probably a pause in the instrumental interlude. In Psalm 19:14 the word is rendered "meditation;" and in Lamentations 3:62, "device" (R.V., "imagination").
International Standard Bible Encyclopedia
HIGGAION

hi-ga'yon, hi-gi'-on (higgayon): The meaning of this word is uncertain. Two interpretations are possible; the one based on an allied Arabic root gives "a deep vibrating sound," the other derived from the Greek versions of Psalm 9:16, where we read higgayon Celah, takes it to mean an instrumental interlude.

See PSALMS.
