Aijeleth shahar

Hebrew ayyeleth hasshachar, "the hind of the morning dawn" (title of Psalm 22). Aben Ezra explains as the name of the melody to which the psalm was to be sung, equivalent to tide rising sun, some well known tune. Rather, allegorical allusion to the subject. The hind symbolizes a lovely and innocent one hounded to death, as the bulls, lions, dogs in the psalm are the persecutors. The unusual Heb., Psalm 22:19, ejulathi, "my strength," alludes to aijeleth, "the hind," weak in itself but having Jehovah for its strength. The morning dawn represents joy bursting forth after affliction; Messiah is alluded to, His deep sorrow (Psalm 22:1-21) passes to triumphant joy (Psalm 22:21-31).
