133:1 «A Song of degrees of David.» 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.
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 about Jerusalem.
(d) Where there is such concord.
