{132:1} A Canticle in steps: of David. Behold, how good and how pleasing it is for brothers to dwell in unity.

{132:2} Sicut unguentum in capite, quod descendit in barbam, barbam Aaron, Quod descendit in oram vestimenti eius:
{132:2} It is like the ointment on the head that descended to the beard, the beard of Aaron, which descended to the hem of his garment.

{132:3} sicut ros Hermon, qui descendit in montem Sion. Quoniam illic mandavit Dominus benedictionem, et vitam usque in sæculum.
{132:3} It is like the dew of Hermon, which descended from mount Zion. For in that place, the Lord has commanded a blessing, and life, even unto eternity.
