Etymology: Old English psealm, later reinforced from Old French psalme (modern psaume), both from Latin psalmus, from Ancient Greek (psalmos) originally "a twitching or twanging with the fingers, mostly of musical strings", from (psallo) "to touch sharply, to pluck, to pull, to twitch", but later in NTest. : "a song sung to the harp, a psalm".
