The Prayer of Blessing – Part 4
The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make His face to shine upon you, and be gracious unto you; the LORD lift His countenance upon you, and give you peace.
“And keep you” – Vey-yeesh-meh-REH-kha
Keep – each Hebrew Letter broken down – it also means – “by (Yahwehs) own Hand He binds and overpowers the destroyer by using His authority in His hand”.
Keep – Shamar –“to hedge about with thorns”
shamar – means so much more than the English word keep. In reality it carries the idea of guarding.
keep you – it is a picture of Him wrapping you in His arms, and It is His arms that are likened to a “thorny hedge” of protection.
