“Ketef Hinnom” is the name given to a hill top SE of the old city of Jerusalem. In the 1970’s Dr. Gaby Barkai uncovered at the site a set a burial caves from the 6th century BCE, including a silver plaque inscribed with the “priestly blessing” (Numbers 6:24-26).

This is considered to be the oldest copy of Biblical text ever found.
