A song of David for going up to the Temple.

133 Oh, how wonderful, how pleasing it is
    when God’s people all come together as one[a]!
It is like the sweet-smelling oil that is poured over the high priest’s[b] head,
    that runs down his beard flowing over his robes.
It is like a gentle rain[c] from Mount Hermon falling on Mount Zion.
    It is there that the Lord has promised his blessing of eternal life.
