Luke 10:5 states, "Whatever house you enter, first say, 'Peace be to this house.'" This blessing can be used for homeowners blessing a new house and also for anyone entering a house in general. Kings 8:13 states, "I have indeed built you an exalted house, a place for you to dwell in forever.” This blessing encourages people to think about appreciating their homes for many years to come.

Samuel 25:6 states, "And thus you shall greet him: ‘Peace be to you, and peace be to your house, and peace be to all that you have.'” Peace and serenity are important characteristics of a comfortable home. Proverbs 24:27 states “Prepare your work outside; get everything ready for yourself in the field, and after that build your house.” Finally, Proverbs 24:3-4 states, "By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches.” This blessing can be interpreted as asking God for material blessings for the home or spiritual blessings.
