The Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary - Jehovah-Shalom
The margin of the Bible renders this title of a covenant God, "The Lord send peace." It was ascribed to the Lord by Gideon, in the prospect of conquering Midian. (Judges 6:24) It proved so then, and it has proved so in numberless instances ever since. But seen with an eye to Christ, it is eminently blessed; here, indeed, JEHOVAH, in the covenant of peace founded in Christ before all worlds, may, and must be called, in the strongest emphasis, JEHOVAH SHALOM.

Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Jehovah Shalom
("Jehovah is peace".) Gideon so-called his altar of thanksgiving (not sacrifice) in Ophrah, to commemorate the angel of Jehovah's salutation, "Peace be unto thee"; where rather judgment for national backslidings was to have been expected, and when he himself had feared death, as having seen the angel of Jehovah. Jehovah's assurance of "peace" confirmed His previous announcement that Gideon would conquer Midian and deliver Israel.
