Attending a brit milah and looking for the perfect gift? Searching for a special and unique present for a baby shower? Look no further than The Verse for a baby gift that is beautiful, appropriate, and timeless. The wall art pieces in our bris gift collection are culled from Bible verses that invoke love, health, and protection for a newborn baby boy.
Modeh Ani is the Jewish morning prayer, thanking God for the very gift of life. “I give thanks to you, loving and eternal king, for you have mercifully restored my soul within me. Your faithfulness is great.” Modeh Ani is such an apt reminder for the gift of a healthy child, one that we can never take for granted.
The Shema prayer is recited several times daily in our prayers, as well as before going to sleep at night. “Hear, O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord is One!” Pair the Shema and Modeh Ani prayers together to express faith from morning to night.
Another beautiful option is the Hamalech Hagoel verse, which continues in the same vein: “Bless the lads. In them, may My name be recalled. May they be teeming multitudes upon the earth.” This is yet another verse that is so appropriate for a newborn baby boy. May he be blessed, connected to his creator, and may he bring forth future generations one day.
The blessing of the children asks God to make the child like our biblical forefathers, and includes the Aaronic blessing for peace, protection, and grace. “May God bless you and protect you. May God make His face shine upon you and treat you with grace. May God lift His face toward you and grant you peace.” The Bible’s timeless messages are what all parents hope for their children.
Jeremiah 1:5 states, “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you. Before you were born, I set you apart.” A baby’s brit milah takes place when he is just 8 days old, but as parents know, it is as though this new being has been part of our lives forever. God Himself knew that this child was destined to be a part of this family.
