The abundance of Old Testament doxologies and benedictions is overwhelming, but Stan Evers has selected eighteen, beginning with the first recorded prayer in the Bible (Gen.4:26), Some are familiar, such as Numbers 6:22-27, which is often used at the end of worship, and Job 1: 21, a bereaved father’s praise. Others are not so well-known, such as 1 Chronicles 29:10-11 (which anticipates the Lord’s prayer), the praise and prayer of an old king; and Daniel 2:20-23, a prophet’s benediction. The author desires that reflection on these expressions of praise will lead to a fresh awareness of God’s grace and glory. He is worthy of our praise!
