The Lord Bless You

February 28th, 2010 · No Comments

Numbers 6:22-27

22 The LORD said to Moses, 23 “Tell Aaron and his sons, ‘This is how you are to bless the Israelites. Say to them:

24 ” ‘ “The LORD bless you
and keep you;

25 the LORD make his face shine upon you
and be gracious to you;

26 the LORD turn his face toward you
and give you peace.” ‘

27 “So they will put my name on the Israelites, and I will bless them.”

I struggle to find anything to comment on these verses. I read the blessings over and over and I find great peace in them. I hear the strains of the hymns from these verses. There are several different versions of these verses put to music. Here is one, and here is another.

This is the kind of reading I like to hear in group worship settings.
