Psalm 133: Precious Oil on the Head

Psalm 133: 1-3

1 How very good and pleasant it is when kindred live together in unity! 

2 It is like the precious oil on the head, running down upon the beard, on the beard of Aaron, running down over the collar of his robes. 

3 It is like the dew of Hermon, which falls on the mountains of Zion. For there the Lord ordained his blessing, life forevermore.
