The Aharonic Benediction

Numbers 6:24-

24 ‘Y’varekh’kha Adonai v’yishmerekha. 25 Ya’er Adonai panav eleikha vichunekka. 26 Yissa Adonai panav eleikha v’yasem l’kha shalom.

“May Adonai bless you and keep you. May Adonai make his face shine on you and show you his favor. May Adonai lift up his face toward you and give you peace.”

The Aharonic benediction is how Adonai commanded Aharon to seal His name on the people of Israel after coming out of Egypt. I can’t explain it well but even when I read it I feel peace, in amongst the storms of daily life there is a refuge in God’s Word. Abba may I always hunger for your Word.
