@msh210 It's certainly a hapax, but not neccesarily the case that the ש is a prefix. Consider the root שגג.

It also shows up in Eicha Yonah Ezra and Divrei Hayamim. Probably a later Hebrew thing. Note all the instances in Tehillim are in the last 30 chapters.

comment Method for practicing Torah reading
+1 I find that if I'm not uber-comfortable with the reading on Saturday morning, hearing it at Hashkama Minyan before reading at the main Minyan is helpful.
