New International Reader's Version

Psalm 133

Psalm 133

A song for those who go up to Jerusalem to worship the Lord. A psalm of David.

How good and pleasant it is
    when God’s people live together in peace!
It’s like the special olive oil
    that was poured on Aaron’s head.
It ran down on his beard
    and on the collar of his robe.
It’s as if the dew of Mount Hermon
    were falling on Mount Zion.
There the Lord gives his blessing.
    He gives life that never ends.

The Message

Psalm 133

A Pilgrim Song of David

11-3 How wonderful, how beautiful,
    when brothers and sisters get along!
It’s like costly anointing oil
    flowing down head and beard,
Flowing down Aaron’s beard,
    flowing down the collar of his priestly robes.
It’s like the dew on Mount Hermon
    flowing down the slopes of Zion.
Yes, that’s where God commands the blessing,
    ordains eternal life.
