Psalms 133

Behold, how good and how pleasant [it is] for brethren to dwell {a} together in unity!

(a) Because the greatest part was against David, though some favoured him, yet when he was established king at length, they joined all together like brothers: and therefore he shows by these similarities the convenience of brotherly love.
[It is] like the precious {b} ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, [even] Aaron's beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments;

(b) The ointment was a figure of the graces which come from Christ the head of his Church.
As the dew of {c} Hermon, [and as the dew] that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for {d} there the LORD commanded the blessing, [even] life for evermore.

(c) By Hermon and Zion he means the plentiful country about Jerusalem. (d) Where there is such concord.
