Commentary for Psalms 133

The excellency of brotherly love.

- We cannot say too much, it were well if enough could be said, to persuade people to live together in peace. It is good for us, for our honour and comfort; and brings constant delight to those who live in unity. The pleasantness of this is likened to the holy anointing oil. This is the fruit of the Spirit, the proof of our union with Christ, and adorns his gospel. It is profitable as well as pleasing; it brings blessings numerous as the drops of dew. It cools the scorching heat of men's passions, as the dews cool the air and refresh the earth. It moistens the heart, and makes it fit to receive the good seed of the word, and to make it fruitful. See the proof of the excellency of brotherly love: where brethren dwell together in unity, the Lord commands the blessing. God commands the blessing; man can but beg a blessing. Believers that live in love and peace, shall have the God of love and peace with them now, and they shall shortly be with him for ever, in the world of endless love and peace. May all who love the Lord forbear and forgive one another, as God, for Christ's sake, hath forgiven them.

Commentary by Matthew Henry, 1710.

    I think it is saying unity is strength and powerful praise is a invitation God will be in the midst
  • Lady Royally on Psalms 133
    My opinion is that with unity comes strength, and when God's people unite in praise giving glory to the all might God, that will be fulfilment, it will be focus, that will be such power from the Blood, from the living Word that the supernatural power that was given to us will be activated, and that will be a true invitation to the Holy spirit. He will show up. I truly believe that.

    Psalm 133, is exactly what the church of Christ Jesus is lacking today..the ministers of God lacks this, the members of church congregation lacks this.God is interested in unity and wants us to be united in love so that his spirit can dwell in the church and in us and families as a place where there is disunity,the spirit of God is was unity that gave birth on penticus day.
