BENEDICTION

A prayer for God's blessing or an affirmation that God's blessing is at hand. The most famous is the priestly benediction (or Aaronic blessing) in Numbers 6:24-25. Most New Testament epistles close with benedictions as well (Romans 15:13; Romans 16:25-27; 1 Corinthians 16:23; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Galatians 6:18; Ephesians 3:20-21; Ephesians 6:23-24; Philippians 4:23; 1 Thessalonians 5:28; 2 Thessalonians 3:18; 1 Timothy 4:20; 2 Timothy 4:22; Titus 3:15; Philemon 1:25; Hebrews 13:20-21,Hebrews 13:25; 1 Peter 5:14; 2 Peter 3:18; 3 John 1:15; Jude 1:24-25). See Blessing and Cursing.
