Michtam

golden psalm

Smith's Bible Dictionary
Michtam

(golden psalm). This word occurs in the titles of six psalms (16,56-60), all of which are ascribed to David. The marginal reading of our Authorized Version is "a golden psalm," while in the Geneva version it is described as "a certain tune." From the position which it occupies in the title we may infer that michtam is a term applied to these psalms to denote their musical character, but beyond this everything is obscure.

ATS Bible Dictionary
Michtam

Prefixed to Psalm 16:11, and meaning golden, profound, or as some think, a writing or song, as in Isaiah 38:9.

Easton's Bible Dictionary
Writing; i.e., a poem or song found in the titles of Psalm 16; 56-60. Some translate the word "golden", i.e., precious. It is rendered in the LXX. by a word meaning "tablet inscription" or a "stelograph." The root of the word means to stamp or grave, and hence it is regarded as denoting a composition so precious as to be worthy to be engraven on a durable tablet for preservation; or, as others render, "a psalm precious as stamped gold," from the word kethem, "fine or stamped gold."
