Aijeleth Shahar

AIJELETH SHAHAR (ā'jĕ-lĕth shā'har, Heb. ’ayyeleth hash-shahar, the hind of the morning). The term is found in the title to Ps.22.1-Ps.22.31. NIV commits itself to one traditional explanation: “To the tune ‘The Doe of the Morning,’” and this, of course, remains a possible interpretation. It is somewhat more common at present to take ’ayyeleth as related to the word ’ayaluth (v. 19), “strength,” or “help.” If this is correct, the words actually entitle the psalm “Help at Daybreak” suitably, as Ps.22.22-Ps.22.31 show.
