The Lord spoke to Moses:
23 “Tell Aaron and his sons how you are to bless the Israelites. Say to them:
24 The Lord bless you and protect you;
25 the Lord make His face shine on you, and be gracious to you;
26 the Lord look with favor on you and give you peace.
27 In this way they will put My name on the Israelites, and I will bless them.”
I sometimes find that reading the Old Testament can be a tough job. Some even ask if the Old Testament is really all that valid anymore in light of what the New Testament offers the believer. But then I run across a beautiful prayer like this and am reminded that from first word to last, my God is in every inspired Word of Scripture.
