Psalms 133:2

Context

133:2 It is like fine oil poured on the head

which flows down the beard 1 

Aaron’s beard,

and then flows down his garments. 2 

1 tn Heb “[it is] like the good oil on the head, going down on the beard.”

2 tn Heb “which goes down in accordance with his measured things.” The Hebrew phrase מִדּוֹתָיו (middotayv, “his measured things”) refers here to the robes worn by Aaron. HALOT 546 s.v. *מַד derives the form from מַד (midah, “robe”) rather than מִדָּה (middah, “measured thing”). Ugaritic md means “robe” and is pluralized mdt.
