Higgaion

In Psalms 92:3 means the murmuring tone of the harp. In Psalms 9:16 it is a musical sign, denoting probably a pause in the instrumental interlude. In Psalms 19:14 the word is rendered "meditation;" and in Lamentations 3:62, "device" (R.V., "imagination").

Smith's Bible Dictionary
Higgaion

(meditation), a word which occurs three times in the book of Psalms

(Psalms 9:16; 19:14; 92:3) (margin). The word has two meanings, one of a general character, implying thought; reflection , and another, in (Psalms 9:16) and Psalms 92:3 Of a technical nature, the precise meaning of which cannot at this distance of time be determined. (Canon Cook says that it probably means an interlude giving musical expression to the feelings suggested by the preceding words.
