Shabbat Shalom - Sabbath Peace
There was a specific blessing used with the breaking of the bread at mealtime in the first century, that will still be said tonight as many gather to begin the Sabbath. It has changed very little from the time of Jesus, and would translate in English to something like this:
"Blessed are you O L-RD our G-D, King of the universe, who brings forth bread from the earth."
Or, if you want to say it in its original Hebrew like Geoff:
"Baruch atah ADONAI Eloheynu, melekh ha-olam, ha-motsi lechem min haaretz. Amen"
"Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins."
"Blessed are you O L-RD our G-D, King of the universe, who created the fruit of the vine."
"Baruch atah ADONAI Eloheynu, melekh ha-olam, borey pri ha-gafin. Amen."
The bread and wine are not what are being blessed. G-D provided them, right? So they are blessed already. He gives His children what is good. We bless G-D for what He has provided. He has also given us a day of rest, the seventh day, Sabbath, or Saturday. Blessings on you as you seek His rest, whether on this day, or another, or in moments through the week. Shabbat Shalom from Jerusalem, to you.
