Birkat Kohanim (Priestly Benediction)

From Wikipedia
The priestly blessing or priestly benediction, (Hebrew: ברכת כהנים‎; translit. birkat kohanim), also known as raising of the hands (Hebrew nesiat kapayim), or Dukhanen (from the Yiddish word dukhan - platform - because the blessing is given from a raised rostrum),[1] is a Jewish prayer recited by Kohanim during certain Jewish services. It is based on a scriptural verse: "They shall place My name upon the children of Israel, and I Myself shall bless them."[2] It consists of the following Biblical verses (Numbers 6:24–26):

May the LORD (YHWH) bless you and guard you -
יְבָרֶכְךָ יהוה, וְיִשְׁמְרֶךָ
("Yebhārēkh-khā Adhōnāy weyishmerēkhā ...)
May the LORD make His face shed light upon you and be gracious unto you -
יָאֵר יהוה פָּנָיו אֵלֶיךָ, וִיחֻנֶּךָּ
("Yāʾēr Adhōnāy pānāw ēlekhā wiḥunnékkā ...)
May the LORD lift up His face unto you and give you peace -
יִשָּׂא יהוה פָּנָיו אֵלֶיךָ, וְיָשֵׂם לְךָ שָׁלוֹם
("Yissā Adhōnāy pānāw ēlekhā wiyāsēm lekhā shālōm.")
