Psalm 133

Language: Hebrew (עברית)

א   [שִׁיר הַמַּעֲלוֹת, לְדָוִד:]1
  הִנֵּה מַה-טּוֹב, וּמַה-נָּעִים-- שֶׁבֶת אַחִים גַּם-יָחַד.
ב   כַּשֶּׁמֶן הַטּוֹב, עַל-הָרֹאשׁ--
  יֹרֵד, עַל-הַזָּקָן זְקַן-אַהֲרֹן:
  שֶׁיֹּרֵד, עַל-פִּי מִדּוֹתָיו.
ג   כְּטַל-חֶרְמוֹן-- שֶׁיֹּרֵד, עַל-הַרְרֵי צִיּוֹן:
  כִּי שָׁם צִוָּה יְהוָה, אֶת-הַבְּרָכָה--
  חַיִּים, עַד-הָעוֹלָם.

Behold, how good and joyful a thing it...

Language: English after the Hebrew (עברית)

1 Behold, how good and joyful a thing it is: brethren, 
  to dwell together in unity!
2 It is like the precious ointment upon the head, 
  that ran down unto the beard: even unto Aaron's beard, 
  and went down to the skirts of his clothing.
3 Like as the dew of Hermon: which fell upon the hill of Sion.
  For there the Lord promised his blessing: 
  and life for evermore.


S. Wesley sets line 1
