Psalms 59:1  (King James Version)
Deliver me from mine enemies, O my God: defend me from them that rise up against me.

M. 2942. B.C. 1062. (Title.) {Al-tas-chith.} or,
destroy not
A golden Psalm.
57:1 58:1 *titles

The seven poems of the celebrated Arabian poets who flourished before the time of Mohammed, called {Mollakat,} from being suspended on the walls of the temple of Mecca, were also called {Modhabat,} "golden," because they were written in letters of gold on the papyrus; and probably this is another reason why the six poems of David were called golden.
