Strong’s #4210


To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. Deliver me, O LORD, from the evil man: preserve me from the violent man.

Psalm 140:1

The verbal root zamar (Strongs #2167) means “to make music by ‘plucking’ a musical instrument.” Music or melody is the Hebrew noun mizmor and is the word for a Psalm, a song accompanied by a stringed musical instrument. The verbal root zamar also means to “pluck” fruit.
