Psalm 133 & 134

  1. Ps. 133. By what two similes does the psalmist depict the blessings of love and unity? What is the force of these similes? Cf. john 13:34, 35; 1 John 2:7-11.
  2. Ps. 134. Note the ‘two-way traffic’ sustained in the house and from the city of the Lord. Where ought we to go to share I it? Cf. Heb. 10:24, 25; 12:22-24.

Notes

  1. 133:2, 3. These similes both indication copiousness. The oil was poured upon Aaron’s head so plentifully that it reached even the collar of the robe. The dew of Hermon was also noted for its abundance.
  2. Ps. 134 is a temple song, consisting of the call of the call of the worshippers as they left the temple in the evening to priests who were to serve during the night, together with the priestly blessing in response. It forms an appropriate ending to the book of pilgrim songs.
