Aaronic Priestly Blessing

The Aaronic Priestly Blessing, also known as the Birkat Kohanim, comes from Numbers 6:24-26 (NKJV).

The LORD bless you and keep you;
The LORD make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you;
The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace.

In Hebrew, it is written (and read from right to left) as:

יברכך יהוה וישׁמרך׃
יאר יהוה פניו אליך ויחנך׃
ישׂא יהוה פניו אליך וישׂם לך שׁלום׃


If you would like to listen and learn the Priestly Blessing, the Hebrew transliteration is as follows:

Ye·va·re·khe·kha Adonai ve·yish·me·re·kha.
Ya’er Adonai pa·nav e·ley·kha vi·chun·ne·kha.
Yi·sa Adonai pa·nav e·ley·kha ve·ya·sem le·kha sha·lom.
