Psalm 133

A song for pilgrims ascending to Jerusalem. A psalm of David.

How wonderful and pleasant it is
    when brothers live together in harmony!
For harmony is as precious as the anointing oil
    that was poured over Aaron’s head,
    that ran down his beard
    and onto the border of his robe.
Harmony is as refreshing as the dew from Mount Hermon
    that falls on the mountains of Zion.
And there the Lord has pronounced his blessing,
    even life everlasting.

Psalm 133 – Psalms for Praying, Nan Merrill

Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers and sisters dwell in unity!

It is like vistas seen from atop a mountain one has climbed…

Or like the stillness of a sunset after a long day’s work.

It is like a shimmering rainbow, a breaking through a summer rain.

When men and women dwell in harmony, the star of Truth appears!

Reflection: As you reflect on Psalm 133 is there a space where you can bring harmony or peace this week? We invite you to pray into that space with God. Give gratitude for the spaces you are invited into.
