133:1(A Song of degrees of David.) Behold, how good and how
pleasant [it is] for brethren to dwell a together in
(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.
133:2 [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.
133:3 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
(d) Where there is such concord.
