Aaronic blessing

Numbers 6:24-27

כד יְבָרֶכְךָ יְהוָה, וְיִשְׁמְרֶךָ.  24 The LORD bless thee, and keep thee;

כה יָאֵר יְהוָה פָּנָיו אֵלֶיךָ, וִיחֻנֶּךָּ.  25 The LORD make His face to shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee;

כו יִשָּׂא יְהוָה פָּנָיו אֵלֶיךָ, וְיָשֵׂם לְךָ שָׁלוֹם.  26 The LORD lift up His countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.

כז וְשָׂמוּ אֶת-שְׁמִי, עַל-בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל; וַאֲנִי, אֲבָרְכֵם.  27 So shall they put My name upon the children of Israel, and I will bless them.' 



The Priestly Blessing or priestly benediction, (Hebrew: ברכת כהנים‎; translit. birkat kohanim), also known in rabbinic literature as raising of the hands (Hebrew nesiat kapayim), or Dukhanen (Yiddish from the Hebrew word dukhan – platform – because the blessing is given from a raised rostrum), is a Hebrew prayer recited by Kohanim - the Hebrew Priests.

Incredibly, Nesiat Kapayim, (Blessing of the Raised Hands), is exactly the FINAL WORDS OF Yeshua of Nazereth recorded in…

Luke 24:50-52 (TLV)

50 Then Yeshua led them out as far as Bethany, and He lifted up His hands, and blessed them. 51 And while blessing them, He departed from them and was taken up into heaven. 52 After worshiping Him, they returned to Jerusalem with great joy.
