Now the Lord of peace himself give you peace always by all means. The Lord be with you all.– 2 Thessalonians 3:16 (KJV)
The Lord bless thee,
and keep thee:
The Lord make his face
shine upon thee,
and be gracious unto thee:
The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee,
and give thee peace.– Numbers 6:24-26 (KJV)
