Psalms 133



1The blessedness of unity among brethren.

Verse 1
Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!
&) A Song of degrees. This Psalm was probably composed when David was made king over all Israel.
122:1; 124:1; 131:1; *titles
how good
122:6-8; Genesis 13:8; 45:24; 2 Samuel 2:26,27; Isaiah 11:6,9,13; Jeremiah 32:39; John 13:35; 17:21; 1 Corinthians 1:10; Ephesians 4:3-6; Philippians 2:2-5; Hebrews 13:1; 1 Peter 3:8; 1 John 3:14-19
Heb. even together.

Verse 2
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 garments;
It is like
141:5; Proverbs 27:9; Song of Solomon 1:3; John 12:3
that ran down
Exodus 30:25-30; Leviticus 8:12

Verse 3
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 for evermore.
As the dew of Hermon
Mr. Maundrell says, "We were sufficiently instructed by experience what the holy Psalmist means by 'the dew of Hermon,' our tents being as wet with it as if it had rained all night." Some suppose that Zion here means a part of Mount Hermon (De 4:48); but it is not written Sion here, but Zion, which is at Jerusalem.
Deuteronomy 3:8,9; 4:48; Joshua 13:11
for there the Lord
42:8; Leviticus 25:21; Deuteronomy 28:8
