From the Old Testament Student Manual:
(14) Neginoth [Psalm 4; 61]. … This name, from the Hebrew word meaning to strike a chord, … clearly denotes that the Psalm was to be sung to the accompaniment of stringed instruments.
Heavenly Father, good morning! Thank you for fresh air, without it life would cease. Thank you for chords played upon stringed instruments and for ears to hear them. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter, Lindsey:
To the chief Musician on Neginoth, A Psalm of David.
Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness: thou hast enlarged me when I was in distress; have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer. (Psalm 4:1)
Lord, I’m here again. I’m here on behalf of Lindsey who is taking time to read your word today and each day this year. I ask that you bring more and more understanding of the words that she reads in your Word. I ask that you let her understand how some of the psalms of David were written to be accompanied by stringed instruments playing chords. And I ask that you give her many opportunities to use her talent and skills to accompany scriptures with her violin. And all the glory is yours Lord. Glory! I pray this all in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen
For the music director, to be accompanied by stringed instruments; a psalm of David.
When I call out, answer me,
O God who vindicates me!
Though I am hemmed in, you will lead me into a wide, open place.
Have mercy on me and respond to my prayer!
For the choir director: A psalm of David, to be accompanied by stringed instruments.
Answer me when I call to you,
O God who declares me innocent.
Free me from my troubles.
Have mercy on me and hear my prayer.
