The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace. Numbers 6:26 NKJV

Numbers 6:26 is part of a blessing called the Priestly Blessing or the Aaronic Blessing, which was given to the Israelites by God through Moses. The full blessing is found in Numbers 6:22-27.

The phrase “The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee” implies God’s favor, grace, and attention being directed towards the individual or the people receiving the blessing. It signifies God’s presence and watchful care over them.

The phrase “and give thee peace” represents a wish for well-being, wholeness, and harmony. Peace, in the biblical context, goes beyond the absence of conflict; it encompasses prosperity, security, and spiritual tranquility.

Overall, Numbers 6:26 is a profound expression of divine favor and the desire for peace and well-being from God. It’s often used as a blessing in religious ceremonies and gatherings, seeking God’s grace and peace to be upon individuals and communities.

May you find God’s favor and peace today.
