Dove On Far Off Terebinths

Part of the superscription of Psalm 56:1 (NRSV; compare REB, NIV) probably a reference to the secular tune to which the psalm was to be sung. “Hind of the Dawn” ( Psalm 22:1 REB) and “Lilies” ( Psalm 45:1 NIV) are possibly other hymn tunes. An alternative explanation relates to the association of doves with the ritual of atonement. In this case the title indicates an atonement psalm. See Terebinths. KJV transliterates the Hebrew, Jonath-elem-rechokim.
