The Aaronic Blessing is the blessing ("Ha Bracha" הברכה) that Aaron and his sons were to speak over the people of Israel, recorded in Numbers 6:23–27: “The Lord said to Moses, ‘Tell Aaron and his sons, “This is how you are to bless the Israelites. Say to them: ‘The Lord bless you and keep you; The Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; The Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.’ So they will put my name on the Israelites, and I will bless them.”

Here are the words of Joshua Aaron's "Ha Bracha" (see the Hebrew, below)

The LORD bless you and keep you Make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you The LORD turn His face toward you and give you peace

May His favor be upon you to a thousand generations Your family and your children Your generations after you May His presence go before you Beside you and behind you All around you and within you He is with you In the morning in the evening In your going and your coming In your weeping and rejoicing He is for you He is for us, He is with us He is for you Peace
