133 1 This Psalm containeth the commendation of brotherly amity among the servants of God.
A song of degrees, or Psalm of David.
1 Behold, how good and how comely a thing it is, brethren to dwell even [a]together.
2 It is like to the precious [b]ointment upon the head, that runneth down upon the beard, even unto Aaron’s beard, which went down on the border of his garments,
3 And as the dew of [c]Hermon which falleth upon the mountains of Zion: for [d]there the Lord appointed the blessing and life forever.
Psalm 133:1Because the greatest part were against David, though some favored him, yet when he was established king at length, they joined all together like brethren: and therefore he showeth by these similitudes the commodity of brotherly love.
Psalm 133:2The ointment was a figure of the graces which come from Christ the head upon his Church.
Psalm 133:3By Hermon and Zion he meaneth the plentiful country about Jerusalem.
