Biblical Selections - "PRIESTLY BLESSING" - Numbers 6: 24-26

Priestly Blessing

The priestly blessing, recorded in Numbers 6: 24-26, is a benediction of protection, grace, and peace.

The Lord bless thee, and keep thee; The Lord make
His face to shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee.
The Lord lift up His countenance upon thee,
and give thee peace. Numbers 6: 24-26

Susan hand-lettered these often-recited Bible verses in English and Hebrew in colorful concentric circles that traverse the color wheel. The Hebrew begins at 3 o'clock and reads counter-clockwise; the English verse starts at 9 o'clock and reads clockwise. The verses surround a colorful circle filled with the word peace (shalom) in Hebrew letters.

In 1979 archeologists discovered this oldest known copy of biblical scripture on two small silver scrolls containing a 7th century B.C. version of the priestly blessing in Hebrew.
