The Aaronic Blessing was given to Moses by Almighty God, who instructed Moses to tell Aaron, the priest, and Aaron’s sons the proper way to bless the Israelites with God’s divine favor.
Bamidbar 6:24-26 OJB is a very poetic Orthodox Jewish Bible version of The Aaronic Blessing.
Regardless of the Bible version, the blessing is in five parts:
- “bless you and keep you” means to give favor and protection
- “make His face shine on you” means pleasing to God
- “be gracious to you” means to be merciful and compassionate
- “turn His face toward you” means God’s approval
- “give peace” is best explained by God’s own Word in Leviticus 26:6-9 NIV
Blessing for God’s spiritual Presence and His Grace:
Now when Jesus saw the crowds, He went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him, and He said:
“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.
Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me.
Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.”
~Matthew 5:1-12 NIV~
