How very good and pleasant it is

          when kindred live together in unity!

It is like the precious oil on the head,

          running down upon the beard,

     on the beard of Aaron,

          running down over the collar of his robes.

It is like the dew of Hermon,

          which falls on the mountains of Zion.

     For there the LORD ordained his blessing,

life for evermore.

Psalm 133:1-3
