Note - the ch is pronounced with a guttural sound, like
the ch in the German achtung, or the composer Bach.
May the Lord bless you and keep you.
May the Lord make His face shine upon you
and be gracious unto you.
May the Lord lift up His countenance upon you
and grant you peace.
(Messianic addition) In the Name of Jesus our Messiah.
The Aaronic Blessing, so named because the Lord told Moses in Numbers 6:22/23 to instruct his brother Aaron and his sons to pray it. Aaron was Israel’s first high priest,
thus the prayer is often called the Priestly Blessing.

The popular new worship song “The Blessing,” is based on the Aaronic Blessing. The writers of the song, Cody Carnes, Kari Jobe, Chris Brown and Steven Furtick, emphasize the continuing nature of God’s desire to bless.
Here’s an excellent rendition of the song presented at a recent worship service by our son, Nathan, and his team at Grace Church.
