Psalm 133

A Song of Ascents. Of David.

1 Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!

2 It is like the precious oil upon the head, running down on the beard, the beard of Aaron, running down on the edge of his garments.

3 It is like the dew of Hermon, descending upon the mountains of Zion; for there the LORD commanded the blessing–Life forevermore.


This psalm comes back to one of the ideas in Psalm 122.  As we draw near to God we will also be drawn closer to others who are also drawing near to God.  Friendship with other believers is almost as important as friendship with God.  This is because often God will use a word from a close friend to deliver, or rather to confirm what He is already telling our hearts.  Like David and Jonathan, or Paul and Silas a good friend can be a balm to our spirit when it is needed most.
