Priestly Blessing Silver Tablet

Deep inside a cave in the Hinnom Valley, an extremely rare and exciting find was made. Two extremely small silver tablets, rolled up like tiny scrolls. At its center, a hollow space, most likely used to insert a thread to enable the scroll could be worn as jewelry or an amulet. Engraved on one scroll are the verses from the “Priestly Blessing” from the Book of Numbers.  Dated to the First Temple period, it is the oldest archeological evidence of verses from the Bible.
