Golden Psalms

Edward Leigh, A Systeme or Body of Divinity 8.3, p. 840:

The Psalmes of David contain the very spirits, as it were, and are an abstract of all the whole word of God, the choicest works of God, the choicest promises, threats, instructions, comforts. Some[*] have the inscription, and that worthily, of Jewels or golden Psalms, because they comprehend most precious matter.

[* Psalms 16 and 56-60 have the inscription, Michtam, which has been rendered in the margin as "golden psalm" by the King James translators. - RAM]
