"Shema" Silver Necklace
The Shema, found in Deuteronomy 6:4-9, is a central biblical prayer and is recited daily by Orthodox Jews and some Christians. In fact, Jesus stated that the Shema was the greatest of all commandments, Mark 12:28-30. If you would like to know more about how the Shema integrates with Christianity, read my blog post, "Hear, O Israel: What does the Shema mean for Christians?"
This necklace is inscribed with the phrase "Shema Israel" in Hebrew which means "Hear O' Israel." The inscription is "שמע ישראל."
This holy prayer in full is as follows:
“Hear, O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord is one! You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand and they shall be as frontals on your forehead. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.” Deuteronomy 6:4-9.
