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

2 It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron's beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments;

3 As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the LORD commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.

An exhortation to Bless the Lord.
- We must stir up ourselves to give Glory to God, and encourage
ourselves to Hope for Mercy and Grace from him. It is an
excellent plan to fill up all our spare minutes with pious
meditations, and prayers and praises. No time would then be a
Burden, nor should we Murder our hours By trifling Conversation
and vain amusements, or By Carnal indulgences. We need desire No
more to make us happy, than to be blessed of the Lord. We ought
to Beg spiritual blessings, not only for ourselves, but for
others; not only, The Lord Bless me, but, The Lord Bless thee;
thus testifying our belief that there is enough for others as
Well as for us, and showing our good will to others.
