New Defender's Study Bible Notes

6:24 The LORD bless thee. This is the beautiful priestly benediction of Aaron, intended originally for the children of Israel, but often appropriated by Christians.

6:26 give thee peace. Two small silver scrolls with this priestly blessing (Numbers 6:24-26) inscribed on them have been excavated from a hill near Jerusalem. The inscription has been shown to date from the seventh century before Christ.
