Sheminith

eighth (an eight-stringed instrument)

Smith's Bible Dictionary
Sheminith

(eighth), a musical term found in the title of (Psalms 6:1) A similar direction is found in the title of (Psalms 12:1) Comp. 1Chr 15:21 It seems most probable that Sheminith denotes a certain air known as the eighth, or a certain key in which the psalm was to be sung.

ATS Bible Dictionary
Sheminith

In the titles of Psalm 6:1-10; 12:1-8, and in 1 Chronicles 15:21. It means properly the eighth, and seems to have been not an instrument, but a part in music, perhaps the lowest.

Easton's Bible Dictionary
Eight; octave, a musical term, supposed to denote the lowest note sung by men's voices (1 Chronicles 15:21; Psalm 6; 12, title).
