The Psalms

Psalm 133

The blessedness of unity among brothers, 1-3.

1 [A Song of Degrees of David.]

Behold, how good and how pleasant it is/
for brothers to dwell together in unity!

It is like the precious ointment upon the head/
that ran down upon the beard,/
even Aaron's beard,/
that went down to the skirts of his garment,

As the dew of Hermon/
and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion,/
for there the LORD commanded the blessing,/
even life forever.
