Habakkuk ends with what might be designated as a canonical colophon.

For the Chief Musician, on my stringed instruments.

What's the correct tag for this?

cf. In content at least, it's very similar to the canonical Psalm titles that we use \d for.

Should we have a new tag \de for such a title at the end of a chapter or book?

Two similar locations with the characteristics of a colophon are:

Job 31:40b

The words of Job are ended.

Psalm 72:20

The prayers of David the son of Jesse are ended.

cf. In the 1885 Revised Version,

  • Job31:40b is formatted as a centered paragraph, normal font size.
  • Psalm 72:20 is in smaller font size, just like the canonical Psalm titles.

(as it fills the column exactly, it's impossible to say whether it was centered)

We use \d
Alternately you can use \b \d
