Psaltery: A musical instrument, supposed to have been a kind of lyre, or a harp
with twelve strings. The Hebrew word nebhel, so rendered, is
translated "viol" in
(Isaiah 5:12) (R.V., "lute");
(Isaiah 14:11) In
(Daniel 3:5,7,10,15) the word thus rendered is Chaldaic, pesanterin,
which is supposed to be a word of Greek origin denoting an instrument
of the harp kind.
