132 . Precious Ointment
Bible Wisdom: PSALMS of Praise and Power newly translated from the Greek Old Testament
Hear now! What's so good or so pleasant
as that God's people live together as brothers?
It's like precious ointment poured on Aaron's head,
and running down his beard to the fringe of his robes.
It's like the silvery dew on Mount Hermon
that falls on the hills of Zion.
Here is where the Lord God has promised His blessing:
Life that never ends!
Translating from the Hebrew: King James Version: Psalm 133. A Song of Degrees of David
Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! 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; 3 As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zi'-on: for the Lord commanded the blessing, even life evermore.
Translating from the Spanish of the Biblia de Jerusalén: Psalm 133 (132). Brotherly Union
Look how good it is and how pleasurable
for all to live together as brothers!
2 Like fine oil on the head,
that runs down the beard,
that runs down the beard of Aaron
even to the fringe of his robes.
3 Like the dew of Hermon
which falls on the summits of Sion,
where Yahweh dispenses his blessing,
