Spock Really Did Say "Shalom"

The blessing Nimoy references is Numbers 6:24-26 (often referred to as the Aaronic blessing):

The Lord bless you and keep you,
The Lord make His face to shine upon you
And be gracious to you,
The Lord lift up His countenance on you
And give you peace.

Or, as he summarized it:

Live Long and Prosper.

Shalom!
