The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying, Thus you shall bless the people of Israel: you shall say to them,
The Lord bless you and keep you;
the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you;
the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.
So shall they put my name upon the people of Israel, and I will bless them.” (Numbers 6:22/27)
Peter in his first letters encourages believers to bless one another (1 Peter 3:9 – ‘bless, for to this you were called’. We can all consciously bless one another and ask the Lord to do the same.
The people of Israel in the Old Testament were the Jews, God’s Chosen People. in the New Testament all those who love the Lord Jesus and have called on Him for forgiveness are now the Chosen People of God. So bless one another and receive the Lord’s blessing and live in the joy of that today.
