Easton's Bible Dictionary

Shiggaion:

from the verb shagah, "to reel about through drink," occurs in the title of Ps. 7. The plural form, shigionoth, is found in Hab 3:1. The word denotes a lyrical poem composed under strong mental emotion; a song of impassioned imagination accompanied with suitable music; a dithyrambic ode.

Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary

Shiggaion:

a song of trouble or comfort

International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia

Shiggaion:

shi-ga'-yon, shi-gi'-on (shiggayon): Occurs in the title of Ps 7, and, in the plural, in the verse introducing Habakkuk's prayer (Hab 3:1). Derived from a verb meaning "to wander," it is generally taken to mean a dithyramb, or rhapsody. This is not supported by the Greek VSS, but they are evidently quite at a loss.

See PSALMS, BOOK OF

Smith's Bible Dictionary

Shiggaion:

(Psalm 7:1) a particular kind of psalm, the specific character of which is now not known perhaps a "wild, mournful ode."
