In 1979 in Jerusalem, two small silver scrolls were found.The scrolls were unearthed in an ancient 6th century B.C.E. burial site on Katef Hinom, at what is now the Begin Center in Jerusalem, opposite the Old City, by archaeologist Gabi Barkai. They are estimated to be approximately 2600 years old. The scrolls contained two hand-engraved silver plagues inscribed with the full “Priestly” or “Aaronic Blessing” from Numbers 6:24-25:

 

“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 on you and give
you peace.”

 

The oldest known fragment of Biblical text, these inscriptions predate the oldest manuscripts of the Bible–the Qumran scrolls–dated from the 3rd century B.C.E. Since the Hebrew text used in the inscriptions was developed approximately 300 years prior to the discovery of the Qumran scrolls, it is believed that the plaques originated in the 7th century B.C.E.–during the period of the first Temple.

The Aaronic Blessing was first worn around the neck with a leather strap, close to the heart. Given by God to Aaron, the blessing was God’s promise given for all the people.
