It describes (a) harmonious relationships between men, Matthew 10:34 ; Romans 14:19 ; (b) between nations, Luke 14:32 ; Acts 12:20 ; Revelation 6:4 ; (c) friendliness, Acts 15:33 ; 1 Corinthians 16:11 ; Hebrews 11:31 ; (d) freedom from molestation, Luke 11:21 ; 19:42 ; Acts 9:31 (RV, 'peace,' AV, 'rest'); 16:36; (e) order, in the State, Acts 24:2 (RV, 'peace,' AV, 'quietness'); in the churches, 1 Corinthians 14:33 ; (f) the harmonized relationships between God and man, accomplished through the gospel, Acts 10:36 ; Ephesians 2:17 ; (g) the sense of rest and contentment consequent thereon, Matthew 10:13 ; Mark 5:34 ; Luke 1:79 ; 2:29 ; John 14:27 ; Romans 1:7 ; 3:17 ; 8:6 ; in certain passages this idea is not distinguishable from the last, Romans 5:1 ." * [2]
"The God of peace" is a title used in Romans 15:33 ; 16:20 ; Philippians 4:9 ; 1 Thessalonians 5:23 ; Hebrews 13:20 ; cp. 1 Corinthians 14:33 ; 2 Corinthians 13:11 . The corresponding Heb. word shalom primarily signifies "wholeness:" see its use in Joshua 8:31 , "unhewn;" Ruth 2:12 , "full;" Nehemiah 6:15 , "finished;" Isaiah 42:19 , marg., "made perfect." Hence there is a close connection between the title in 1 Thessalonians 5:23 and the word holokleros, "entire," in that verse. In the Sept. shalom is often rendered by soteria, "salvation, e.g., Genesis 26:31 ; 41:16 ; hence the "peace-offering" is called the "salvation offering." Cp. Luke 7:50 ; 8:48 . In 2 Thessalonians 3:16 , the title "the Lord of peace" is best understood as referring to the Lord Jesus. In Acts 7:26 , "would have set them at one" is, lit., "was reconciling them (conative imperfect tense, expressing an earnest effort) into peace."
B — 1: εἰρηνεύω (Strong's #1514 — Verb — eireneuo — i-rane-yoo'-o ) primarily, "to bring to peace, reconcile," denotes in the NT, "to keep peace or to be at peace:" in Mark 9:50 , RV, the Lord bids the disciples "be at peace" with one another, gently rebuking their ambitious desires; in Romans 12:18 (RV, "be at peace," AV, "live peaceably") the limitation "if it be possible, as much as in you lieth," seems due to the phrase "with all men," but is not intended to excuse any evasion of the obligation imposed by the command; in 2 Corinthians 13:11 it is rendered "live in peace," a general exhortation to believers; in 1 Thessalonians 5:13 , "be at peace (among yourselves)."
B — 2: εἰρηνοποιέω (Strong's #1517 — Verb — eirenopoieo — i-ray-nop-oy-eh'-o ) "to make peace" (eirene, and poieo, "to make"), is used in Colossians 1:20 . In the Sept., Proverbs 10:10 .
C — 1: εἰρηνικός (Strong's #1516 — Adjective — eirenikos — i-ray-nee-kos' ) akin to A, denotes "peaceful." It is used (a) of the fruit of righteousness, Hebrews 12:11 , "peaceable" (or "peaceful") because it is produced in communion with God the Father, through His chastening; (b) of "the wisdom that is from above," James 3:17 .
Note: In 1 Timothy 2:2 , AV, hesuchios, "quiet," is translated "peaceable" (RV, "quiet").
Charles Spurgeon's Illustration Collection - Peace of Pardon: Not a Mere Forgetfulness
I have spilled the ink over a bill and so have blotted it till it can hardly be read, but this is quite another thing from having the debt blotted out, for that cannot be till payment is made. So a man may blot his sins from his memory, and quiet his mind with false hopes, but the peace which this will bring him is widely different from that which arises from God's forgiveness of sin through the satisfaction which Jesus made in his atonement. Our blotting is one thing, God's blotting out is something far higher.
Bridgeway Bible Dictionary - Peace
In the original languages of the Bible, the word ‘peace’ had a meaning far wider and richer than that which people commonly associate with the word today. In the Old Testament, peace (Heb. shalom) included a range of ideas, such as completeness, wholeness and well-being. The New Testament, though using the Greek word for ‘peace’, retained the breadth of ideas found in the Old Testament and so gave the word a richer meaning.
Wide-ranging blessings
According to the Hebrews’ understanding, peace was a state of well-being that included good health, prosperity, contentment, security and harmonious relationships (Psalms 29:11; Psalms 37:37; Psalms 85:8-9; Isaiah 26:1-4; Isaiah 32:17-18; Isaiah 60:17; Lamentations 3:17; Zechariah 6:13; Zechariah 8:12; Luke 11:21; 1 Corinthians 14:33; Ephesians 4:3). A prayer for God’s peace upon a person, nation or church was a prayer for the wide-ranging blessing of God (Numbers 6:26; Psalms 122:6; Luke 2:14; Romans 15:33). The greeting of ‘Peace!’ with which people greeted each other was both an enquiry after and a wish for a person’s well-being (Judges 6:23; Judges 18:6; Judges 19:20; 1 Samuel 25:6; 1 Samuel 25:35; Matthew 10:13; John 20:21; 1 Corinthians 1:3; Ephesians 1:2; Ephesians 6:23; 1 Peter 1:2; 1 Peter 5:14).
Since peace was often linked with the blessing of God, it became linked also with God’s salvation (Isaiah 26:11-13; Luke 1:79; Luke 19:42; Acts 10:36; Romans 5:1; Romans 16:20). When God’s prophets warned the Old Testament Israelites of certain judgment if they continued in their sin, false prophets comforted the rebellious people with false assurances of salvation (Jeremiah 8:10-11; Jeremiah 8:15; Jeremiah 14:19; Ezekiel 13:10). But there could be no salvation, no peace, for the wicked (Isaiah 48:22). After the years of exile in Babylon, however, the good news of peace would prepare a repentant people for salvation from captivity and return to their homeland (Isaiah 52:7-10; cf. Ephesians 6:15).
Peace with God through Jesus Christ
No matter what expressions of salvation people of Old Testament times experienced, the fulness of salvation awaited the coming of Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6; Luke 1:79). The peace he brought is an everlasting peace (Luke 2:14John 14:27 16:33Isaiah 9:7; Isaiah 65:17-25; Revelation 21:1-5; Revelation 21:22-24).
This complete restoration to peace, fulness, wholeness and well-being is possible only because Jesus, by his death, dealt with the cause of the world’s trouble, sin. He bore God’s judgment on sin, so that the divine hostility against sin might be removed and repentant sinners might have peace with God (Isaiah 53:5-6; Romans 5:1-2; Colossians 1:20-22; see PROPITIATION).
When people, through God’s grace, have peace with God, they also have peace with one another. They become members of the kingdom of God, where all disharmony and injustice are removed, whether in matters of race, age, sex or status (Romans 14:17; Romans 14:19; Ephesians 2:14-17; Ephesians 4:3; see RECONCILIATION).
Christians preach this gospel of peace to others (Matthew 10:13; John 20:21; Acts 10:36; Ephesians 6:15), though they realize that at times it may cause division; for while some will gladly accept it, others will violently oppose it (Matthew 10:34-36). In spite of this, Christians must do all they can to help people in general to live together peacefully (Matthew 5:9; Romans 12:18; Hebrews 12:14).
Not only do Christians have peace with God through Christ, they also have the peace of God through Christ. That peace does not mean that they will have a trouble-free life. Rather it means that they now enjoy a state of spiritual wholeness and well-being that gives them strength and calmness even in the midst of suffering and trials (John 14:27; John 16:33; Galatians 5:22; Colossians 3:15; Philippians 4:7).
Charles Spurgeon's Illustration Collection - Death: Peace in
The late Mr. Young of Jedburgh, was once visiting the death-bed of an aged member of his congregation, who was hourly looking for his last change. 'Well, my friend,' said the minister, 'how do you feel yourself to-day?' 'Very weel, sir,' was the calm and solemn answer, 'Very weel, but just a wee confused wi' the flittin'.'–Children's Missionary Record for 1857.
Charles Buck Theological Dictionary - Peace
That state of mind in which persons are exposed to no open violence to interrupt their tranquillity.
1. Social peace is mutual agreement one with another, whereby we forbear injuring one another, Psalms 34:14 . Psalms 132:1-18 :
2. Ecclesiastical peace is freedom from contentions, and rest from persecutions, Isaiah 11:13 . Isaiah 32:17 . Revelation 12:14 .
3. Spiritual peace is deliverance from sin, by which we were at enmity with God, Romans 5:1 ; the result of which is peace, in the conscience, Hebrews 10:1-39 . This peace is the gift of God through Jesus Christ, 2 Thessalonians 3:16 . It is a blessing of great importance, Psalms 119:165 . It is denominated perfect, Isaiah 26:3 . inexpressible, Philippians 4:7 . permanent, Job 34:22 . John 16:22 . eternal, Isaiah 57:2 . Hebrews 4:9 .

The Meaning of Peace . In English, the word "peace" conjures up a passive picture, one showing an absence of civil disturbance or hostilities, or a personality free from internal and external strife. The biblical concept of peace is larger than that and rests heavily on the Hebrew root slm , which means "to be complete" or "to be sound." The verb conveys both a dynamic and a static meaning—"to be complete or whole" or "to live well." The noun had many nuances, but can be grouped into four categories: (1) salom [1] as victory over one's enemies or absence of war. Salom [2] was used in both greetings and farewells. It was meant to act as a blessing on the one to whom it was spoken: "May your life be filled with health, prosperity, and victory." As an adjective, it expressed completeness and safety. In the New Testament, the Greek word eirene [3] is the word most often translated by the word "peace." Although there is some overlap in their meanings, the Hebrew word salom [2] is broader in its usage, and, in fact, has greatly influenced the New Testament's use of eirene [3].
God as the Source of Peace . God alone is the source of peace, for he is "Yahweh Shalom" (see Judges 6:24 ). The Lord came to sinful humankind, historically first to the Jews and then to the Gentiles, desiring to enter into a relationship with them. He established with them a covenant of peace, which was sealed with his presence (see Numbers 6:24-26 ). Participants were given perfect peace (salom salom [ Isaiah 26:3 ; 2 Thessalonians 3:16 ).
The Old Testament anticipated, and the New Testament confirmed, that God's peace would be mediated through a messiah (see Isaiah 9:6-7 ; Micah 5:4-5 ). Peace with God came through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ (Romans 5:1 ; Ephesians 2:14-17 ; Colossians 1:19-20 ; see Hebrews 13:20 ). Peter declared to Cornelius: "You now the message God sent to the people of Israel, telling the good news of peace through Jesus Christ, who is Lord of all" (Acts 10:36 ).
The Relationship of Righteousness to Peace . The Lord established a covenant, which resulted in the participants receiving his salom [ Isaiah 48:18 ). However, peace could be disturbed if one did not live before the Lord and others in righteousness; in fact, peace is one of the fruits of righteousness (Isaiah 32:17-18 ). The psalmist poetically describes the relationship between the two as righteousness and peace kissing each other (Psalm 85:10 ). The God of peace and the peace of God sanctify the child of God (see 1 Thessalonians 5:23 ). On the other hand, Scripture specifically states that there can be no peace for the wicked (Isaiah 11:6-11 ; 57:21 ). Paul described the difference as follows: "There will be trouble and distress for every human being who does evil: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile; but glory, honor and peace for everyone who does good: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile" (Romans 2:9-10 ).
One of the key issues among the prophets was the doctrine of "peace." The false prophets proclaimed "peace, peace" and in that announcement hoped to create peace for their constituency. The true prophets argued that peace could never be achieved apart from righteousness and justice. In this light, one can better understand what Jesus meant when he declared, "Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword" (Matthew 10:34 ). And Paul wrote, "The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet" (Romans 16:20 ). Judgment on sin, historically and eschatologically, must come prior to peace.
Peace in the Age to Come . In the age to come the animal kingdom will be restored to its paradisiacal tranquility. The image in Isaiah 48:22 is among the most picturesque in Scripture. Animals are paired off in a strange and wonderful way: the wolf and the lamb, the leopard with the kid, the calf with the lion, the cow with the bear, the lion with the ox. They shall be led by a little child. The emphasis is on the harmony, the salom [2] between the animals and the animal kingdom with man. Children shall, in that day, be able to play with snakes and they will not be hurt.
In addition, the curse of the ground will be removed and the land will again be characterized by salom [ Amos 9:13-15 ). The desert will become a fertile field (Isaiah 32:15 ), while the cultivated lands will drip with "new wine" and the "ravines of Judah will run with water" (Joel 3:18 ).
The nations of the world will come under the dominion of the "Prince of Peace" and in so doing, "will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks" (Isaiah 2:4 ; Micah 4:3 ). Isaiah poetically characterizes it as a time when "You shall go out with joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands" (Isaiah 55:12 ).
One cannot overlook the fact that this harmony will never happen until man has a right relationship (salom [ Isaiah 9:6 ; see Jeremiah 33:8-9 ).

Charles Spurgeon's Illustration Collection - Peace: of a Believer
The believer's peace is like a river for confirmance. Look at it, rising as a little brook among the mosses of the lone green hill; by-and-by it leaps as a rugged cataract; anon it flows along that fair valley where the red deer wanders, and the child loves to play. With bum of pleasant music the brook turns the village mill. Hearken to its changeful tune as it ripples over its pebbly bed, or leaps adown the wheel, or sports in eddies where the trees bend down their branches to kiss the current. Anon the streamlet has become a river, and bears upon its flood full many a craft. Then its bosom swells, bridges with noble arches span it, and, grown vaster still, it becomes an estuary, broad enough to be an arm of old Father Ocean, pouring its water-floods into the mighty main. The river abides the lapse of ages, it is no evanescent morning cloud, or transient rain-flood, but in all its stages it is permanent.
'Men may come, and men may go, But I flow on for ever.'
Evermore, throughout all generations, the river speedeth to its destined place. Such is the peace of the Christian. He has always reason for comfort. He has not a consolation like a swollen torrent which is dried up under the hot sun of adversity, but peace is his rightful possession at all times. Do you enquire for the Thames? You shall find it flowing in its own bed in the thick black night, as well as in the clear bright day. You shall discover the noble river when it mirrors the stars or sends back the sheen of the moon, as well as when multitudes of eyes gaze upon the pompous pageantry of civic procession at midday. You may see its waves in the hour of tempest by the lightning's flash, as well as in the day of calm when the sun shineth brightly on them. Ever is the river in its plac.. And even thus, come night1, come day, come sickness, come health, come what will, the peace of God which passeth all understanding will keep the Christian's heart and mind, through Jesus Christ.
Nor must we exclude the idea of progress. You can leap the Thames at Cricklade, for the tiny brook is spanned by a narrow plank across which laughing village girls are tripping; but who thinks of laying down a plank at Southend, or at Grays? No, the river has grown: how deep! At the mouth of it, comparable to the sea: how broad! There go the ships, and even leviathan might play therein. Such is the Christian's peace. At the first, little temptations avail to mar it, and the troubles of life threaten to evaporate it. Be not dismayed, but quietly wait. When the Christian is somewhat grown, and has wandered for awhile along the tortuous course of a gracious experience, his peace will gather force like a flowing stream. Wait twenty or thirty years, till he has traversed yonder rich lowlands of fellowship with Christ in his sufferings, and conformity to his death, and you shall mark that the believer's rest will be like a river deep and broad, for he shall know the peace which was our Master's precious legacy; and he will cast all his care upon God, who careth for him. True peace will increase till it melts into the eternal rest of the beatific vision, where
'Not a wave of trouble rolls Across the peaceful breast.'
Charles Spurgeon's Illustration Collection - Peace: False
Your peace, sinner, is that terribly prophetic calm which the traveler occasionally perceives upon the higher Alps. Everything is still. The birds suspend their notes, fly low, and cower down with fear. The hum of bees among the flowers is hushed. A horrible stillness rules the hour, as if death had silenced all things by stretching over them his awful scepter. Perceive ye not what is surely at hand? The tempest is preparing; the lightning will soon cast abroad its flames of fire. Earth will rock with thunder-blasts; granite peaks will be dissolved; all nature will tremble beneath the fury of the storm. Yours is that solemn calm to-day, sinner. Rejoice not in it, for the hurricane of wrath is coming, the whirlwind and the tribulation which shall sweep you away and utterly destroy you.

Morrish Bible Dictionary - Peace
This term is used to express the present attitude and testimony of God toward man consequent on the declaration of God's righteousness in the death of Christ. The state of man which was obnoxious to the holiness of God by reason of sin has been removed in the cross. Hence the believer is justified by faith, and has peace (peace of conscience) with God through the Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 5:1 . Christ made peace through the blood of the cross, Colossians 1:20 and to the Christian God is 'the God of peace,' and the Lord Jesus is 'the Lord of peace.' He also is peace between believers, having on the cross broken down the barrier between Jew and Gentile. Ephesians 2:14,15 .
When the Lord Jesus left the earth He left to the disciples peace, and said, "My peace I give unto you." Peace is also spoken of as the state of heart in which a believer is kept in regard of circumstances. The record in the O.T. is, "Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace (peace, peace, margin ) whose mind is stayed on thee, because he trusteth in thee." Isaiah 26:3 . The Christian makes his requests known unto God, and the peace of God that passeth all understanding keeps his heart and mind through Christ Jesus (peace of heart). Philippians 4:6,7 . Blessed privilege! and what a contrast to "There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked." Isaiah 57:21 The Lord Jesus will, in the future, among His other titles, be hailed as PRINCE OF PEACE. Isaiah 9:6 .
1910 New Catholic Dictionary - Augsburg, Religious Peace of
Compact arrived at in 1555 by the Diet of Augsburg, in a vain effort to secure religious harmony, by recognizing the pretensions of the German princes to dictate a religion to their subjects and by securing to the adherents of the Augsburg Confession all Catholic property which they had held from the beginning of the religious upheaval. By this compact the religious schism in the empire was definitely established, and the Catholic and Protestant estates were made opposing camps.

Vine's Expository Dictionary of OT Words - Peace
A. Nouns.
Shâlôm (שָׁלֹם, Strong's #7965), “peace; completeness; welfare; health.” The root is a common Semitic root with the meaning “peace” in Akkadian, Ugaritic, Phoenician, Aramaic, Syriac, Arabic, and Ethiopic.
Shâlôm is a very important term in the Old Testament and has maintained its place in Mishnaic, rabbinic, and modern Hebrew. In Israel today, people greet the newcomer and each other with the words mah shlomka, (“what is your peace,” “how are you doing,”) and they ask about the “peace” (“well-being”) of one’s family. The use of shâlôm is frequent (237 times) and varied in its semantic range. The first two occurrences in Genesis already indicate the changes in meaning: “And thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace [1]; thou shalt be buried in a good old age” (Gen. 15:15); and “that thou wilt do us no hurt, as we have not touched thee, and as we have done unto thee nothing but good, and have sent thee away in peace [2] …” (Gen. 26:29). Yet, both uses are essentially the same, as they express the root meaning of “to be whole.” The phrase |ish shelomi(“friend of my peace”) in Ps. 41:9, “Yea, mine own familiar friend [3], in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me” (cf. Jer. 20:10), signifies a state in which one can feel at ease, comfortable with someone. The relationship is one of harmony and wholeness, which is the opposite of the state of strife and war: “I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war” (Ps. 120:7). Shâlôm as a harmonious state of the soul and mind encourages the development of the faculties and powers. The state of being at ease is experienced both externally and internally. In Hebrew it finds expression in the phrase beshâlôm (“in peace”): “I will both lay me down in peace [4], and sleep: for thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety” (Ps. 4:8).
Closely associated to the above is the meaning “welfare,” specifically personal “welfare” or “health.” This meaning is found in questions: “And Joab said to Amasa, Art thou in health, my brother? And Joab took Amasa by the beard with the right hand to kiss him” (2 Sam. 20:9), or in the prepositional phrase leshâlôm with the verb “to ask”: “And he asked them of their welfare, and said, Is your father well, the old man of whom ye spake? Is he yet alive?” (Gen. 43:27).
Shâlôm also signifies “peace,” indicative of a prosperous relationship between two or more parties. Shâlôm in this sense finds expression in speech: “Their tongue is as an arrow shot out; it speaketh deceit: one speaketh peaceably [5] to his neighbor with his mouth, but in heart he layeth his wait” (Jer. 9:8); in diplomacy: “Howbeit Sisera fled away on his feet to the tent of Jael the wife of Heber the Kenite: for there was peace between Jabin the king of Hazor and the house of Heber the Kenite” (Judg. 4:17); and in warfare: “… If it make thee answer of peace, and open unto thee, then it shall be, that all the people that is found therein shall be tributaries unto thee, and they shall serve thee” (Deut. 20:11).
Isaiah prophesied concerning the “prince of peace” (Isa. 9:6), whose kingdom was to introduce a government of “peace” (Isa. 9:7). Ezekiel spoke about the new covenant as one of “peace”: “Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore” (Ezek. 37:26). Psalm 122 is one of those great psalms in celebration of and in prayer for the “peace of Jerusalem”: “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee” (Ps. 122:6). In benedictions God’s peace was granted to His people: “… Peace shall be upon Israel” (Ps. 125:5).
The Septuagint gives the following translations: eirene (“peace; welfare; health”); eirenikos (“peaceable; peaceful”); soteria (“deliverance; preservation; salvation”); and hugiainein (“be in good health; sound”).
Another related noun is shelem which occurs 87 times, and means “peace offering”: “And he sent young men of the children of Israel, which offered burnt offerings, and sacrificed peace offerings of oxen unto the Lord” (Exod. 24:5).
B. Verbs.
Shâlam (שָׁלֵם, Strong's #7999), “to be complete, be sound.” This verb occurs 103 times. The word signifies “to be complete” in 1 Kings 9:25: “So he finished the house.” Another verb, shâlam, means “to make peace”: “When a man’s ways please the Lord, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him” (Prov. 16:7).
C. Adjective.
Shâlêm (שָׁלֵם, Strong's #8003), “complete; perfect.” This word is found in Gen. 15:16 with the meaning of not quite “complete”: “But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full.” The word means “perfect” in Deut. 25:15.

Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Peace
PEACE . From Latin pax , through French. 1 . Except in Daniel 8:25 ; Daniel 11:21 ; Daniel 11:24 (where RV [1] corrects to ‘security’), the OT ‘peace’ represents uniformly the Heb. shâlôm (Eastern salaam ), the fundamental sense of which always more or less distinctly implied is welfare (as in Genesis 43:27 , Psalms 73:3 etc.); of well-being, in the old turbulent times, peace was the prime condition. The word has the following specific religious uses: (1) it is the common formula of courteous well-wishing, employed both at meeting and at parting (see Gen 43:23 , 1 Samuel 1:17 , Psalms 122:7 f.; cf. Matthew 10:12 f.); (2) ‘peace’ constituted the most conspicuous blessing of the Messianic Kingdom of God (wh. see; cf. Psalms 72:3 ; 2 Corinthians 5:18-21 , Isaiah 2:4 ; Isaiah 9:5-7 ; Isaiah 11:5-9 , Haggai 2:9 , Zechariah 9:10 ); and (3) it signified a sound and settled understanding between J″ [2] and His people ( Numbers 6:26 , Psalms 72:72 ; Psalms 85:8 ff; Psalms 122:6 , Jeremiah 16:5 etc.) hence J″ [2] ’s ‘covenant of peace ’ is lodged with His priests ( Numbers 25:12 , Malachi 2:4 f.). In this last and richest use the word approximates to its subjective NT signification, implying tranquillity of heart, as in Psalms 4:8 ; Psalms 119:155 , Isaiah 48:18 ; Isaiah 48:22 .
2 . The transition, from OT to NT usage strikingly illustrates the inwardness of Christianity. Out of some 90 NT instances of ‘peace’ there are not more than 8 or 9 which do not refer to heart-peace. The Greek eirçnç in its proper sense signified peace strictly, as the opposite of conflict ; but it took over, first in the LXX [4] and then in the NT, the broader import of shâlôm , which is conspicuous in the (Hebraistic) Benedictions (see Mark 5:34 , Luke 7:30 ; Luke 24:36 , John 14:27 , James 2:16 etc.) and in the epistolary Salutations. In the latter formulæ, ‘peace’ comprehends the sum of blessing experienced, as ‘grace’ the sum of blessing bestowed, from God in Christ. The Messianic peace (1 (2), above) reappears in Luke 1:79 ; Luke 2:14 , Matthew 10:34 ; and the peace of harmony with God (1 (3)) in John 16:33 , Acts 10:36 , Romans 8:6 ; Romans 15:33 , Philippians 4:7 etc. The uses just named are gathered up, with a deepened sense, into the specific NT doctrine of peace, of which Paul is the exponent, and Romans 5:1 the classical text (cf. v. 10, also 1618650208_29 , Ephesians 2:13-18 , Colossians 1:20 ; see article on Justification): ‘peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ’ is the state and the experience of those who have been ‘reconciled’ to the Father through the sacrifice offered by the Son of His love, whose ‘trespasses’ are ‘forgiven’ and in whose heart ‘the spirit of adoption’ dwells. Reconciled to God, men are reconciled to life and the world; by His cross Christ ‘has slain’ at a blow ‘the enmity’ between God and man and between race and race ( Ephesians 2:18 ). ‘Peace on earth’ is to flow from ‘the peace of Christ’ that ‘rules in’ Christian ‘hearts’ ( Colossians 3:15 ).

Holman Bible Dictionary - Peace, Spiritual
Sense of well-being and fulfillment that comes from God and is dependent on His presence.
Old Testament The concept of spiritual peace is most often represented by the Hebrew root slm and its derivatives, the most familiar being by the noun shalom . Its basic meaning is “wholeness” or “well-being.” (See, for example, Genesis 28:20-22 ; Judges 6:23 ; Judges 18:6 ; 1 Kings 2:33 .) The Law, the Prophets, and the Writings of the Old Testament each bear testimony that such peace is the gift of God, for God alone can give peace in all its fullness (Leviticus 26:6 ; 1 Chronicles 12:18 ; 1 Chronicles 22:9 ; 1 Kings 2:33 ; Isaiah 26:12 ; Isaiah 52:7 ; Ezekiel 34:25 ; Ezekiel 37:26 ; Zechariah 6:13 ; Malachi 2:5-6 ; Job 22:21 ; Job 25:2 ; Psalm 4:8 ; Psalm 29:11 ; Psalm 37:37 ; Psalm 85:8 ; Psalm 122:6-8 ; Psalm 147:14 ; Proverbs 3:17 ). Spiritual peace may be equated with salvation (Isaiah 52:7 ; Nahum 1:15 ). Its absence may be equated with judgment (Jeremiah 12:12 ; Jeremiah 14:19 ; Jeremiah 16:5 ; Jeremiah 25:37 ; Lamentations 3:17 ; Ezekiel 7:15 ). It is available to all who trust in God (Isaiah 26:3 ) and love His law (Psalm 119:165 —note that in Psalm 119:166-168 this love is clearly understood to mean obedience!) This peace is clearly identified with a righteous life apart from which no one is able to find true peace ( Isaiah 32:17 ; Isaiah 48:22 ; Isaiah 57:1-2 ). Thus peace and righteousness are often linked in the Old Testament (Psalm 72:7 ; Psalm 85:10 ; Isaiah 9:7 ; Isaiah 32:17 ; Isaiah 48:18 ; Isaiah 60:17 ), as are peace and justice (Isaiah 59:8 ). To be at peace is to be upright (Malachi 2:6 ), to be faithful (2 Samuel 20:19 ), to be an upholder of the truth (Esther 9:30 ; Zechariah 8:19 ), and to practice justice (Isaiah 59:8 ; Zechariah 8:16 ). Throughout the Old Testament spiritual peace is realized in relationship. It is realized when people are rightly related to each other and to God.
New Testament The Greek word eirene corresponds to the Hebrew shalom expressing the idea of peace, well-being, restoration, reconciliation with God, and salvation in the fullest sense. God is “the God of peace” ( Romans 15:33 ; Philippians 4:9 ; 1 Thessalonians 5:23 ; Hebrews 13:20 ). The Gospel is “the good news of peace” (Ephesians 6:15 ; Acts 10:36 ) because it announces the reconciliation of believers to God and to one another (Ephesians 2:12-18 ). God has made this peace a reality in Jesus Christ, who is “our peace.” We are justified through Him (Romans 5:1 ), reconciled through the blood of His cross (Colossians 1:20 ), and made one in Him (Ephesians 2:14 ). In Him we discover that ultimate peace which only God can give (John 14:27 ). This peace is experienced as an inner spiritual peace by the individual believer (Philippians 4:7 ; Colossians 3:15 ; Romans 15:13 ). It is associated with receptiveness to God's salvation (Matthew 10:13 ), freedom from distress and fear (John 14:27 ; John 16:33 ), security (1 Thessalonians 5:9-10 ), mercy (Galatians 6:16 ; 1 Timothy 1:2 ), joy (Romans 14:17 ; Romans 15:13 ), grace (Philippians 1:2 ; Revelation 1:4 ), love (2 Corinthians 13:11 ; Jude 1:2 ), life (Romans 8:6 ), and righteousness (Romans 14:17 ; Hebrews 12:11 ; James 3:18 ). Such peace is a fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22 ) that forms part of the “whole armor of God” (Ephesians 6:11 ,Ephesians 6:11,6:13 ), enabling the Christian to withstand the attacks of the forces of evil. Thus, the New Testament gives more attention to the understanding of spiritual peace as an inner experience of the individual believer than does the Old Testament. In both the Old and the New Testament, spiritual peace is realized in being rightly related—rightly related to God and rightly related to one another.

The Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary - Peace
It would have been perfectly unnecessary to have noticed this word, in order to have explained its general sense and meaning in reference to the use of it among men, had that been all. The peace and war of nations, or among houses or families, or kingdoms, are terms with which every one is familiar. But the Scripture sense of the word peace, and more especially the gospel signification of it, in respect to that peace believers have with God in Christ makes it well worth attention in a work of this kind.
It may not perhaps have struck an ordinary reader, that the word peace carries with it the idea that the breach then said to be made up presupposes that there had been a state of amity existing before the breach came in to interrupt it; and this is indeed the blessedness of the gospel. Hence it is called the "ministry of reconciliation." (2 Corinthians 5:18) So that to reconcile God and man in Christ, which is the grand object of the gospel, is to bring together again those who had before been friends, but were then at enmity; and hence is clearly proved, what the word of God all along is setting forth, that the present state is not the first, neither will it be the final state of man: it is but intermediate and preparatory. There was a period in the annals of eternity when God and man, in the person of the Glory-man, set up before all worlds, were in perfect amity and friendship. And there is another period to come when, from the reconciliation now made between God and man in the blood of the cross, this amity and friendship will continue uninterrupted and unbroken to all eternity. And there is another sweet thought connected with the gospel meaning of the word peace, namely, that all the overturns for a reconciliation began on the part of God, the injured party; and all the peace that follows becomes the sole result of his divine operation. JEHOVAH it is that first publisheth his royal intentions of being reconciled to his offending creature man. It is JEHOVAH that points out and provides the means, and accomplisheth the end, in the attainment of it. Nothing on the part of the sinner could be found even helpful towards it; yea, so totally incapable of putting forth the least aiding hand upon this business is the transgressor, that when proposed to him he must be made willing to accept it; and before proposed to him, he is unconscious of the want of it. Blessedly therefore is it said by the apostle, under the authority of the Holy Ghost, (2 Corinthians 5:19) that "God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself." And blessedly doth he open his commission, when acting as the servant of his royal master, he adds,"Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God."
Such then is the Scripture sense of that peace of God and peace with God, in the blood and righteousness of God's dear Son, "which passeth all understanding, keeping the heart and mind, in Jesus Christ." (Philippians 4:7) And so truly great and glorious was the first promulgation of it, when the news broke out in heaven, that the holy angels delighted to be the first preachers of it upon earth. The multitude of them that came flying, down to the Jewish shepherds at Bethlehem in the morning of Christ's nativity, hailed them with this joyful sound. "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace and good-will toward men." (Luke 2:13-14) And the prophet in ages before, looking into gospel times, was so struck with the contemplation of the work in the exercise of the ministry of reconciliation, that he declared the very feet of them that preached it became beautiful to the view of broken-hearted sinners. "How beautiful (said Isaiah) upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace, that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation, that saith unto Zion. Thy God reigneth!" (Isaiah 52:7)
Hastings' Dictionary of the New Testament - Peace (2)
PEACE.—1. The word frequently occurs in the Gospels in the idiomatic phrase ‘to hold one’s peace,’ i.e. to keep silence, representing (both in Revised Version NT 1881, OT 1885 and Authorized Version ) no fewer than four different verbs in the original—ἡσυχάζω, σιγάω, σιωπάω, and φιμόω. ἡσυχάζω (Luke 14:4) is the most general term (fr. ἥσυχος, ‘at rest’), denoting a state of restfulness in which silence is included (cf. Luke 23:56 τὸ μὲν σάββατον ἡσύχασαν ‘and on the sabbath they rested’). σιγάω (Luke 20:26) has been distinguished from σιωπάω (Matthew 20:31; Matthew 26:63, Mark 3:4; Mark 9:34; Mark 10:48; Mark 14:61, Luke 18:39; Luke 19:40)—the former as referring to a silence induced by mental conditions (fear, grief, awe, etc.), the latter as a more physical term denoting simply an abstinence from vocal utterance (so Schmidt in his Synon. d. gr. Sprache, quoted by Grimm-Thayer, Lex. p. 281). But in classical Gr. such a distinction between σιγάω and σιωπάω can hardly be said to be ordinarily observed (cf. Liddell and Scott, Lex. s.vv.), and in the NT ἡσυχάζω, σιγάω, and σιωπάω, when used in the sense of holding one’s peace, appear to be employed without any real discrimination.
On the other hand, φιμόω is a stronger and rougher word, which properly means ‘to muzzle’ (fr. φιμός, ‘a muzzle’). It is noticeable that our Lord addresses it only to an unclean spirit (Mark 1:25 = Luke 4:35) or to the raging sea (Mark 4:39, where Authorized and Revised Versions gives ‘Be still!’). Once Mt. uses it to describe how Jesus put the Sadducees to silence (Matthew 22:34); and in the parable of the Wedding Garment it is used (Matthew 22:12) to express the speechless condition to which the intruder was reduced when challenged by the king (cf. Twent. Cent. NT1 [1] , ‘the man was dumbfounded’).
2. In the ordinary sense of rest or tranquillity, in antithesis to strife and war, ‘peace’ (εἰρήνη) is found, e.g., in Matthew 10:34 = Luke 12:51 (note the contrast with μάχαιρα), Luke 14:32. Generally, however, εἰρήνη in the NT means more than this, and clearly inherits the larger suggestions of the Heb. שִׁלֹום, which primarily denoted a state of wellbeing, safety, and blessedness, of which, however, peace in the common acceptation of the term would be one of the most important conditions. It is in this way that we are to understand expressions like ‘Now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace’ (Luke 2:29), ‘his goods are in peace’ (Luke 11:21), ‘the things which belong unto thy peace’ (Luke 19:42). This also is the connotation of ‘Peace!’ when used as a form of salutation (Matthew 10:12-13 = Luke 10:5-6; Luke 24:36, John 20:19; John 20:21; John 20:26); though, as employed by our Lord, and by His disciples according to His instructions, the salutation is weighted with the larger Messianic meaning (see below).
3. But in its predominating and characteristic use in the NT, εἰρήνη is distinctively a Christian word, being employed especially to describe the mission, the character, and the gospel of Jesus Christ.
(1) Peace was a distinctive feature of Christ’s mission.—In prophetic anticipation the coming of the Messiah was to inaugurate a reign of peace (Isaiah 9:7, Psalms 72:3; Psalms 72:7), and He Himself was to be ‘the Prince of Peace’ (Isaiah 9:6). In the Gospel story of His birth, the promise of peace heralds His advent (Luke 1:79), and ‘on earth peace’ is sung by the angels on the night in which He is born (Luke 2:14). His earthly ministry was a ministry and message of peace. ‘Have peace one with another’ was one of His injunctions (Mark 9:50), while of those who not merely live in peace, but are peace-makers (εἰρηνοποιοί), He said that they shall be called sons of God (Matthew 5:9). ‘Peace’ was the salutation which both the Twelve and the Seventy were bidden to use when sent forth on their respective missions (Matthew 10:12 f., Luke 10:5 f.); it was the word spoken by Jesus Himself in dismissing those whom He had healed of their physical or moral plagues (Mark 5:34, Luke 7:50; Luke 8:48); and again the greeting with which He met His disciples after He was risen from the dead (Luke 24:36, John 20:19; John 20:21; John 20:26). And in all these cases it seems evident that ‘Peace be unto you!’ and ‘Go in peace!’ are not merely conventional forms of salutation or farewell, but refer to the blessings guaranteed by Jesus as the Christ of God.
And yet there is a sense in which Jesus came ‘not to send peace, but a sword’ (Matthew 10:34, cf. Luke 12:51). For there is a false peace (Jeremiah 6:14; Jeremiah 8:11); and with that He could have nothing to do. Jesus would never compromise, or permit His followers to compromise, with falsehood or error or sin; and so, in a world where these things abound, His coming inevitably meant division and struggle and suffering (cf. Luke 2:34-35). Yet, for all that, peace was the purpose of His mission, even though it had to be attained by sending forth a sword—sharp and twoedged, as the seer saw it (Revelation 1:16)—a sword which will ultimately secure the victory of the good in the conflict with evil, and bring in the peace that rests on righteousness (cf. Psalms 72:7; Psalms 85:10).
(2) Peace was a quality of Christ’s character.—The words ‘Peace I leave with you; my peace I give unto you’ (John 14:27) strike one of the fundamental notes of His personal being as that is revealed to us in the Gospels. Men have been known to make bequests when they had nothing to leave; but peace was a blessing which Jesus had power to bestow, because it was His own peculiar possession. At the very centre of His earthly life, amidst all its vicissitudes, there always lies a profound peace, which is quite different from impassivity, for it is something vital and flowing like a strong calm river (cf. Isaiah 48:18). It was, without doubt, the magnetism of this peace-possessing and peace-diffusing strength of Jesus that drew troubled hearts around Him; and it was the consciousness of having it and being able to bestow it that inspired that most characteristic invitation, ‘Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest’ (Matthew 11:28).
This personal peace of Jesus must be distinguished, of course, from the peace of outward circumstances. When He said, ‘My peace I give unto you,’ He was just about to go forth to Gethsemane and the judgment-hall and the cross. But the peace He was conscious of lay deeper than all trials and sufferings, for it came from the assurance of a perfect union in thought and heart and will with His Father in heaven (John 14:11; John 14:20; Ephesians 2:14-17). Christ’s peace was like that of a white water-lily—tossed to and fro by the surface waves of the lake, but unshaken from its place because its roots are buried deep in the soil beneath (cf. Wordsworth, Excursion, v. 555). All through His earthly life He realized, as no other human being ever could, the full meaning of the prophet’s word, ‘Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on thee’ (Isaiah 26:3).
(3) Peace is a characteristic blessing of the gospel of Christ.—Thus we find it constantly described when we pass from the Gospels to the Apostolic teaching. So characteristic of Christ’s gospel is it that this gospel is itself described by St. Paul as ‘the gospel of peace’ (Ephesians 6:15), and St. Peter in the Acts speaks of those who publish the message of salvation as ‘preaching good tidings of peace by Jesus Christ’ (Acts 10:36). ‘Peace,’ indeed, becomes, like grace, a virtual summary for gospel blessings, and so in the benedictory salutations of nearly every Apostolic writer it is combined with ‘grace’ as the distinctive gift of ‘God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ’ (Romans 1:7, 1 Corinthians 1:3, 2 Corinthians 1:2, Galatians 1:3, Ephesians 1:2, Philippians 1:2, Colossians 1:2, 1 Thessalonians 1:1, 2 Thessalonians 1:2, 1 Timothy 1:2, Titus 1:4, Philemon 1:3, 1 Peter 1:2, 2 Peter 1:2, 2 John 1:3, Judges 1:2).
It is St. Paul, however, who works out most fully the place of peace in the Christian gospel and its immediate relation to Christ Himself. With him ‘peace’ has two distinct meanings, corresponding to two different facts of Christian experience. (a) First, there is an objective peace—the peace of reconciliation with God through our Lord Jesus Christ—which follows as the result of being justified by faith (Romans 5:1 [2], John 14:31; cf. 2 Corinthians 5:18-21). (b) Next, there is a subjective peace—the peace of conscious fellowship with God—which results from a living union with Christ the Saviour. This subjective peace finds its ground in the objective peace of reconciliation, but it is clearly distinguished from it. The other is ‘peace with God’ (Romans 5:1); this is ‘the peace of God which passeth all understanding’ (Philippians 4:7). This inward peace is one of the fruits of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22), it forms part of our joy in believing (Romans 15:13), it is a power that guards our hearts and thoughts in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:7). And it is of this peace, as a glad sense of sonship and trust wrought in the soul by Jesus Christ, that the Apostle is thinking when he writes: ‘The Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times, in all ways’ (2 Thessalonians 3:16).

Hastings' Dictionary of the New Testament - Peace
The etymology of the Greek word εἰρήνη is variously given as from εἴρειν (= Lat. serere), ‘to fasten together,’ or from εἴρειν (cf. Lat. sermo), ‘to speak.’ Besides the noun the following forms of the root occur in the writings of the Apostolic Age: εἰρηνεύειν, ‘to keep the peace’ (never transitive, ‘to reconcile’) (Mark 9:50, Zechariah 9:9-1039 2 Corinthians 13:11, 1 Thessalonians 5:13); εἰρηνοποιός, ‘peacemaker’ (Matthew 5:9), on which see below; εἰρηνοποιεῖν, ‘to make peace’ (Colossians 1:20), εἰρηνικός, ‘peaceable’ (James 3:17); for the meaning in Hebrews 12:11 see below.
The noun εἰρήνη occurs in all the NT writings except John, but the preponderant and most characteristic use is in the Pauline Epistles. It derives its peculiar significance from the OT שלום and cognate forms. In extra-biblical Greek εἰρήνη is strictly limited to its ordinary political and military significance, meaning simply the cessation or absence of war. It does not even cover the idea of ‘treaty,’ ‘truce,’ for which σπονδαί is used. The LXX_ puts εἰρήνη for six other words besides שלום (cf. שעס in Isaiah 2:1-4). It is of prime importance to notice that in Hebrew and the cognate languages שלום is not a word formed for or originally associated with the cessation of hostilities. The root שלס covers a wide range of ideas, many of which have nothing to do with war and peace. The use of the word with a political or military reference is a later development. From this it must be explained that ‘peace’ in the OT has frequently a positive content, and that it is applied in many connexions to which it could scarcely have been transferred from its military use. Thus the idea of ‘health’ is not a metaphor transferring the notion of political soundness to the bodily, organism. Nor is the meaning of ‘prosperity’ the product of the experience that political peace is indispensable to economic welfare. The root denotes originally ‘wholeness,’ ‘integrity.’ This is applied to inorganic things, e.g. unhewn stones (Deuteronomy 27:6), also metaphorically to such things as labour (1 Kings 7:51), wages (Ruth 2:12), and spiritually to disposition (Isaiah 38:3) and sin (Genesis 15:18). Further, it is used of artificially produced objects in the sense of being unbroken, uninjured (Deuteronomy 25:15, Proverbs 11:1). In relation to organic processes it stands for health (Genesis 29:6), and this, in part at least, gives rise to the employment of the word in the formula of salutation, although the wider sense of security of one’s actions and interests in general enters likewise into this usage (Genesis 41:16). The Piël species of the verb has two main significations-the religious one of performing a ritual obligation (Deuteronomy 23:22), and the forensic one of recompensing, sensu malo of punishment (Jeremiah 25:14) or of trade-exchange (Psalms 37:21). In both respects the transaction is viewed as an integrating process, the payment rounding off, rendering complete the votive state or the compensatory relationship. In dependence on the ritual usage the name for one class of sacrifice will probably have to be explained, for these offerings were either votive offerings or sacrifices for thanksgiving in general. The Hiphil and Hophal forms of the verb are largely denominatives from the noun in its specialized meaning ‘peace,’ but they, also signify ‘to give execution to a plan or purpose’-again the idea of integration (Deuteronomy 20:12, Job 5:23; Job 23:14, Isaiah 44:26; Isaiah 44:28). The political notion of peace itself goes back to the same idea, inasmuch as two parties become a unit in their relations towards outsiders or in mutual intercourse. Peace is not always the sequel of war; it may be in the form of alliance, the preventative of war (1 Samuel 7:14).
From the foregoing it appears that there was a wide, only partly political or military, basis in the secular usage for the positive religious application of the word. The peace which God gives or maintains for His people is ‘integrity,’ ‘soundness,’ ‘prosperity’ in the widest sense (Isaiah 45:7, Jeremiah 29:7). Even when ‘peace’ occurs in antithesis to war the associations are not purely negative. The positive blessings consequent upon the cessation of war are included (Jeremiah 4:10, Zechariah 8:10 ff.). Peace as a religious bonum applies to the sphere of nature as well as of politics, and the former as well as the latter plays an important part in eschatological prophecy (Hosea 2:20 ff., 1 Chronicles 4:40 161865020811 Isaiah 9:5-6, Micah 5:5; Micah 5:10-15, 1618650208_8). The idea of peace in relation to God Himself, in distinction from peace in other relations, given or guaranteed by God, seems to occur in the OT only in Psalms 85:8 (but cf. Isaiah 48:22; Isaiah 57:21).
In the NT εἰρήνη has a two-fold religious application. On the one hand the military-political usage is transferred to the religious sphere. This is done in two directions: firstly, with reference to God; and secondly, as between believers mutually. Peace is the antithesis to the warfare that exists between God and the sinner. As this warfare (‘enmity’) is an objective state and not a mere figure for hostile disposition towards God on man’s part, so the peace is an objectively established and maintained footing, on which God and the believer associate together. St. Paul has with doctrinal precision correlated the ideas of ‘enmity’ (Romans 5:10; Romans 11:28, Colossians 1:21), ‘reconciliation’ (Romans 5:10-11; Romans 11:15, 2 Corinthians 5:18-20, Colossians 1:21), and ‘peace’ (Romans 5:1; Romans 8:6; Romans 14:17). Although the subjective, emotional experience of an inner state of peace is inseparable from this εἰρήνη πρὸς θεόν, yet the word itself does not in these contexts express it, but stands simply for the state of justification. This remains true, even if the correct reading in Romans 5:1 is the subjunctive εἰρήνην ἔχωμεν, ‘let us have peace,’ for this cannot, any more than the καταλλάγητε τῷ θεῷ of 2 Corinthians 5:19, relate to the cultivation of a peaceful disposition towards God; it must refer in both cases to the subjective appropriation through faith of the objective peace which God establishes in Christ. It is doubtful whether any Pauline passage has εἰρήνη in the purely subjective sense either of disposition or of experience (cf. Romans 15:13 with Romans 14:17). In Philippians 4:7, Colossians 3:15 peace is represented as guarding the hearts and thoughts and ruling in the hearts. This must be understood of objective peace personified, and the result ascribed to this influence exercised by peace covers far more than a feeling of tranquillity. As applied to the fellowship between believers mutually, peace is a social conception, including the elements of harmony and organic co-operation (Romans 14:19, 1 Corinthians 7:15; 1 Corinthians 14:33, Galatians 5:22, Ephesians 4:3 [2], Hebrews 12:14, James 3:18; 1 Peter 3:11, 2 Peter 3:14). In regard to Ephesians 2:14-22 there is a difference of opinion among exegetes as to whether the reference of the peace embodied in Christ is to Jewish and Gentile believers mutually considered, or fundamentally to God, so as to include only as a corollary peace between the two component parts of the body of the Church. E. Haupt (Die Gefangenschaftsbriefe, in Meyer’s Kommentar über das NT, 1897, pp. 78-99) has advocated the former view, but the other interpretation seems more in keeping with the trend of the passage and the expressions used. By being reconciled to God, each for their own part, Gentiles and Jews have now become reconciled together. In Ephesians 2:14-15 peace denotes the fellowship between Jews and Gentiles, but in Ephesians 2:17 (Isaiah 57:19) the peace proclaimed by the gospel is the peace with God, and the same idea is implied in Isaiah 57:16.
The other branch of the NT idea of religious peace ramifies from the main OT stem. It denotes the spiritualized, Christian form of ‘prosperity,’ ‘security,’ ‘soundness,’ ‘salvation,’ associated with the word from its very earliest use. No doubt this was coloured, to the mind of St. Paul at least, by the consciousness of the peace of reconciliation existing with God, but its content is too rich and too positive to be exhausted by it. In this sense we find the word in the salutations at the beginning or close of the Epistles, usually associated with χάρις (Romans 1:7, 1 Corinthians 1:3, 2 Corinthians 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:11, Galatians 1:3; Galatians 6:16, Ephesians 1:2; Ephesians 6:23 [3], Philippians 1:2, Colossians 1:2, 1 Thessalonians 1:1, 2 Thessalonians 1:2; 2 Thessalonians 3:16, 1 Timothy 1:2, 2 Timothy 1:2, Titus 1:4, Philemon 1:3, 1 Peter 1:2; 1 Peter 5:14, 2 Peter 1:2, 2 John 1:3, 3 John 1:14, Revelation 1:4). This goes back in the last analysis to the use of the word in ordinary social salutation, which in the OT already refers not exclusively to friendly intercourse, but also to positive well-being, including health and general security. In a profound spiritualization of this conception the formula had already been addressed by Christ to the disciples after the Resurrection (Luke 24:36, John 20:19; John 20:21; John 20:26; cf. also Matthew 10:13, Luke 2:29; Luke 7:50; Luke 8:48; Luke 10:5-6, Acts 15:33; Acts 16:36, 1 Corinthians 16:11). The rich, positive content becomes apparent in such passages as the following: Luke 1:79 (opposite ‘darkness’ and ‘shadow of death’) Luke 2:14 (= the complete Messianic salvation, because ‘peace on earth’ is parallel to ‘glory in the highest,’ which has Messianic significance, and because the men who receive the peace are characterized as objects of the Divine εὐδοκία; cf. also Luke 19:42), John 14:27; John 16:33, Acts 9:31; Acts 10:36 (= the object of the gospel-proclamation), Romans 2:10 (associated with δόξα and τιμή as the eschatological reward for working good) Romans 14:17, Romans 15:13; Romans 15:33, Romans 16:20 (the result of the conquest of Satan), Galatians 6:16 (‘mercy and peace’), Ephesians 2:17 (content of the gospel-message) Ephesians 6:15 (‘the gospel of peace’), Philippians 4:7, Colossians 3:15, 1 Thessalonians 5:3 (the opposite of eschatological peril = ἀσφαλεία), Hebrews 7:2 (Christ, like Melchizedek, King of Peace) Hebrews 12:11 (the fruit of righteousness consisting in peace; cf. Isaiah 32:17 and James 3:18). The general soteriological reference is also favoured by the fact that God is called ‘the God of peace’ (Romans 15:33; Romans 16:20, 1 Corinthians 14:33, 2 Corinthians 13:11, Philippians 4:9, Hebrews 13:20), as conversely the peace is also called ‘the peace of God’ (Philippians 4:7). In the light of this wider, positive conception it becomes probable that the εἰρηνοποιοί of Matthew 5:9 are not merely promoters of peace in the sense of reconcilers between man and man, but those who actively procure and produce peace (= salvation) for others.
It will be noticed that the prophetic picture of political peace among the nations is not reproduced in the NT. No doubt this is largely due to the elevation of its eschatology to a higher, transcendental plane. Pre-Christian Judaism, while making considerable use of the idea of peace, remains at bottom particularistic, whilst Christianity is thoroughly universalistic, although the programme of political peace is not explicitly enunciated in its writings.
The NT conception of peace offers no real point of contact with the Stoic ἀπάθεια and the Epicurean άταραξἰα (cf. 1 Corinthians 7:15, Philippians 4:7, Colossians 3:1; Colossians 3:15). It is not psychologically conceived as in these systems, but soteriologically. The peace of the NT is not independence of outside conditions in the citadel of man’s subjectivity, but the fruit of an objective real salvation with God.

Peace - The Meaning of Peace . In English, the word "peace" conjures up a passive picture, one showing an absence of civil disturbance or hostilities, or a personality free from internal and external strife. The biblical concept of Peace is larger than that and rests heavily on the Hebrew root slm , which means "to be complete" or "to be sound. " The noun had many nuances, but can be grouped into four categories: (1) salom [1] as victory over one's enemies or absence of war. In the New Testament, the Greek word eirene [3] is the word most often translated by the word "peace. ...

The Old Testament anticipated, and the New Testament confirmed, that God's Peace would be mediated through a messiah (see Isaiah 9:6-7 ; Micah 5:4-5 ). Peace with God came through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ (Romans 5:1 ; Ephesians 2:14-17 ; Colossians 1:19-20 ; see Hebrews 13:20 ). Peter declared to Cornelius: "You now the message God sent to the people of Israel, telling the good news of Peace through Jesus Christ, who is Lord of all" (Acts 10:36 ). ...

However, Peace could be disturbed if one did not live before the Lord and others in righteousness; in fact, Peace is one of the fruits of righteousness (Isaiah 32:17-18 ). The psalmist poetically describes the relationship between the two as righteousness and Peace kissing each other (Psalm 85:10 ). The God of Peace and the Peace of God sanctify the child of God (see 1 Thessalonians 5:23 ). On the other hand, Scripture specifically states that there can be no Peace for the wicked (Isaiah 48:22 ; 57:21 ). Paul described the difference as follows: "There will be trouble and distress for every human being who does evil: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile; but glory, honor and Peace for everyone who does good: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile" (Romans 2:9-10 ). ...
One of the key issues among the prophets was the doctrine of "peace. " The false prophets proclaimed "peace, Peace" and in that announcement hoped to create Peace for their constituency. The true prophets argued that Peace could never be achieved apart from righteousness and justice. In this light, one can better understand what Jesus meant when he declared, "Do not suppose that I have come to bring Peace to the earth. I did not come to bring Peace, but a sword" (Matthew 10:34 ). And Paul wrote, "The God of Peace will soon crush Satan under your feet" (Romans 16:20 ). Judgment on sin, historically and eschatologically, must come prior to Peace. ...

Peace - ...
Shâlôm (שָׁלֹם, Strong's #7965), “peace; completeness; welfare; health. ” The root is a common Semitic root with the meaning “peace” in Akkadian, Ugaritic, Phoenician, Aramaic, Syriac, Arabic, and Ethiopic. In Israel today, people greet the newcomer and each other with the words mah shlomka, (“what is your Peace,” “how are you doing,”) and they ask about the “peace” (“well-being”) of one’s family. The first two occurrences in Genesis already indicate the changes in meaning: “And thou shalt go to thy fathers in Peace [1]; thou shalt be buried in a good old age” ( Peace [2] …” ( Peace”) in Peace”]'>[3], in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me” (cf. The relationship is one of harmony and wholeness, which is the opposite of the state of strife and war: “I am for Peace: but when I speak, they are for war” ( Peace”): “I will both lay me down in Peace [4], and sleep: for thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety” ( Peaceably [5] to his neighbor with his mouth, but in heart he layeth his wait” ( Peace between Jabin the king of Hazor and the house of Heber the Kenite” ( Peace, and open unto thee, then it shall be, that all the people that is found therein shall be tributaries unto thee, and they shall serve thee” ( Peace” ( Peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore” ( Peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee” ( Peace was granted to His people: “… Peace shall be upon Israel” ( Peaceful”); soteria (“deliverance; preservation; salvation”); and hugiainein (“be in good health; sound”). ...

Peace (2) - PEACE. The word frequently occurs in the Gospels in the idiomatic phrase ‘to hold one’s Peace,’ i. ), and in the NT ἡσυχάζω, σιγάω, and σιωπάω, when used in the sense of holding one’s Peace, appear to be employed without any real discrimination. In the ordinary sense of rest or tranquillity, in antithesis to strife and war, ‘peace’ (εἰρήνη) is found, e. שִׁלֹום, which primarily denoted a state of wellbeing, safety, and blessedness, of which, however, Peace in the common acceptation of the term would be one of the most important conditions. It is in this way that we are to understand expressions like ‘Now lettest thou thy servant depart in Peace’ (Luke 2:29), ‘his goods are in Peace’ (Luke 11:21), ‘the things which belong unto thy Peace’ (Luke 19:42). This also is the connotation of ‘Peace!’ when used as a form of salutation (Matthew 10:12-13 = Luke 10:5-6; Luke 24:36, John 20:19; John 20:21; John 20:26); though, as employed by our Lord, and by His disciples according to His instructions, the salutation is weighted with the larger Messianic meaning (see below). ...
(1) Peace was a distinctive feature of Christ’s mission. —In prophetic anticipation the coming of the Messiah was to inaugurate a reign of Peace (Isaiah 9:7, Psalms 72:3; Psalms 72:7), and He Himself was to be ‘the Prince of Peace’ (Isaiah 9:6). In the Gospel story of His birth, the promise of Peace heralds His advent (Luke 1:79), and ‘on earth Peace’ is sung by the angels on the night in which He is born (Luke 2:14). His earthly ministry was a ministry and message of Peace. ‘Have Peace one with another’ was one of His injunctions (Mark 9:50), while of those who not merely live in Peace, but are Peace-makers (εἰρηνοποιοί), He said that they shall be called sons of God (Luke 2:34-352). ‘Peace’ was the salutation which both the Twelve and the Seventy were bidden to use when sent forth on their respective missions (Matthew 10:12 f. And in all these cases it seems evident that ‘Peace be unto you!’ and ‘Go in Peace!’ are not merely conventional forms of salutation or farewell, but refer to the blessings guaranteed by Jesus as the Christ of God. ...
And yet there is a sense in which Jesus came ‘not to send Peace, but a sword’ (Matthew 10:34, cf. For there is a false Peace (Jeremiah 6:14; Jeremiah 8:11); and with that He could have nothing to do. Yet, for all that, Peace was the purpose of His mission, even though it had to be attained by sending forth a sword—sharp and twoedged, as the seer saw it (Revelation 1:16)—a sword which will ultimately secure the victory of the good in the conflict with evil, and bring in the Peace that rests on righteousness (cf. ...
(2) Peace was a quality of Christ’s character. —The words ‘Peace I leave with you; my Peace I give unto you’ (John 14:27) strike one of the fundamental notes of His personal being as that is revealed to us in the Gospels. Men have been known to make bequests when they had nothing to leave; but Peace was a blessing which Jesus had power to bestow, because it was His own peculiar possession. At the very centre of His earthly life, amidst all its vicissitudes, there always lies a profound Peace, which is quite different from impassivity, for it is something vital and flowing like a strong calm river (cf. It was, without doubt, the magnetism of this Peace-possessing and Peace-diffusing strength of Jesus that drew troubled hearts around Him; and it was the consciousness of having it and being able to bestow it that inspired that most characteristic invitation, ‘Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest’ (1618650208_5). ...
This personal Peace of Jesus must be distinguished, of course, from the Peace of outward circumstances. When He said, ‘My Peace I give unto you,’ He was just about to go forth to Gethsemane and the judgment-hall and the cross. But the Peace He was conscious of lay deeper than all trials and sufferings, for it came from the assurance of a perfect union in thought and heart and will with His Father in heaven (John 14:11; John 14:20; John 14:31). Christ’s Peace was like that of a white water-lily—tossed to and fro by the surface waves of the lake, but unshaken from its place because its roots are buried deep in the soil beneath (cf. All through His earthly life He realized, as no other human being ever could, the full meaning of the prophet’s word, ‘Thou wilt keep him in perfect Peace whose mind is stayed on thee’ (Isaiah 26:3). ...
(3) Peace is a characteristic blessing of the gospel of Christ. Paul as ‘the gospel of Peace’ (Ephesians 6:15), and St. Peter in the Acts speaks of those who publish the message of salvation as ‘preaching good tidings of Peace by Jesus Christ’ (Acts 10:36). ‘Peace,’ indeed, becomes, like grace, a virtual summary for gospel blessings, and so in the benedictory salutations of nearly every Apostolic writer it is combined with ‘grace’ as the distinctive gift of ‘God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ’ (Romans 1:7, 1 Corinthians 1:3, 2 Corinthians 1:2, Galatians 1:3, Ephesians 1:2, Philippians 1:2, Colossians 1:2, 1 Thessalonians 1:1, 2 Thessalonians 1:2, 1 Timothy 1:2, Titus 1:4, Philemon 1:3, 1 Peter 1:2, 2 Peter 1:2, 2 John 1:3, Judges 1:2). Paul, however, who works out most fully the place of Peace in the Christian gospel and its immediate relation to Christ Himself. With him ‘peace’ has two distinct meanings, corresponding to two different facts of Christian experience. (a) First, there is an objective Peace—the Peace of reconciliation with God through our Lord Jesus Christ—which follows as the result of being justified by faith (Romans 5:1 [2], Ephesians 2:14-17; cf. (b) Next, there is a subjective Peace—the Peace of conscious fellowship with God—which results from a living union with Christ the Saviour. This subjective Peace finds its ground in the objective Peace of reconciliation, but it is clearly distinguished from it. The other is ‘peace with God’ (Romans 5:1); this is ‘the Peace of God which passeth all understanding’ (Philippians 4:7). This inward Peace is one of the fruits of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22), it forms part of our joy in believing (Romans 15:13), it is a power that guards our hearts and thoughts in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:7). And it is of this Peace, as a glad sense of sonship and trust wrought in the soul by Jesus Christ, that the Apostle is thinking when he writes: ‘The Lord of Peace himself give you Peace at all times, in all ways’ (2 Thessalonians 3:16). ‘Peace’; Weiss, Bib.

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

Peace - In the original languages of the Bible, the word ‘peace’ had a meaning far wider and richer than that which people commonly associate with the word today. In the Old Testament, Peace (Heb. The New Testament, though using the Greek word for ‘peace’, retained the breadth of ideas found in the Old Testament and so gave the word a richer meaning. ...
Wide-ranging blessings...
According to the Hebrews’ understanding, Peace was a state of well-being that included good health, prosperity, contentment, security and harmonious relationships (Psalms 29:11; Psalms 37:37; Psalms 85:8-9; Isaiah 26:1-4; Isaiah 32:17-18; Isaiah 60:17; Lamentations 3:17; Zechariah 6:13; Zechariah 8:12; Luke 11:21; 1 Corinthians 14:33; Ephesians 4:3). A prayer for God’s Peace upon a person, nation or church was a prayer for the wide-ranging blessing of God (Numbers 6:26; Psalms 122:6; Luke 2:14; Romans 15:33). The greeting of ‘Peace!’ with which people greeted each other was both an enquiry after and a wish for a person’s well-being (Judges 6:23; Judges 18:6; Judges 19:20; 1 Samuel 25:6; 1 Samuel 25:35; Matthew 10:13; John 20:21; 1 Corinthians 1:3; Ephesians 1:2; Ephesians 6:23; 1 Peter 1:2; 1 Peter 5:14). ...
Since Peace was often linked with the blessing of God, it became linked also with God’s salvation (Isaiah 26:11-13; Luke 1:79; Luke 19:42; Acts 10:36; Romans 5:1; Romans 16:20). But there could be no salvation, no Peace, for the wicked (Isaiah 48:22). After the years of exile in Babylon, however, the good news of Peace would prepare a repentant people for salvation from captivity and return to their homeland (Isaiah 52:7-10; cf. ...
Peace with God through Jesus Christ...
No matter what expressions of salvation people of Old Testament times experienced, the fulness of salvation awaited the coming of Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6; Luke 1:79). The Peace he brought is an everlasting Peace (Luke 2:14John 14:27 16:33Isaiah 9:7; Isaiah 65:17-25; Revelation 21:1-5; Revelation 21:22-24). ...
This complete restoration to Peace, fulness, wholeness and well-being is possible only because Jesus, by his death, dealt with the cause of the world’s trouble, sin. He bore God’s judgment on sin, so that the divine hostility against sin might be removed and repentant sinners might have Peace with God (Isaiah 53:5-6; Romans 5:1-2; Colossians 1:20-22; see PROPITIATION). ...
When people, through God’s grace, have Peace with God, they also have Peace with one another. ...
Christians preach this gospel of Peace to others (Matthew 10:13; John 20:21; Acts 10:36; Ephesians 6:15), though they realize that at times it may cause division; for while some will gladly accept it, others will violently oppose it (Matthew 10:34-36). In spite of this, Christians must do all they can to help people in general to live together Peacefully (Matthew 5:9; Romans 12:18; Hebrews 12:14). ...
Not only do Christians have Peace with God through Christ, they also have the Peace of God through Christ. That Peace does not mean that they will have a trouble-free life
Peace, Spiritual - ...
Old Testament The concept of spiritual Peace is most often represented by the Hebrew root slm and its derivatives, the most familiar being by the noun shalom . ) The Law, the Prophets, and the Writings of the Old Testament each bear testimony that such Peace is the gift of God, for God alone can give Peace in all its fullness (Leviticus 26:6 ; 1 Chronicles 12:18 ; 1 Chronicles 22:9 ; Isaiah 57:1-260 ; Isaiah 26:12 ; Isaiah 52:7 ; Ezekiel 34:25 ; Ezekiel 37:26 ; Zechariah 6:13 ; Malachi 2:5-6 ; Job 22:21 ; Job 25:2 ; Psalm 4:8 ; Psalm 29:11 ; Psalm 37:37 ; Psalm 85:8 ; Psalm 122:6-8 ; Psalm 147:14 ; Proverbs 3:17 ). Spiritual Peace may be equated with salvation (Isaiah 52:7 ; Nahum 1:15 ). It is available to all who trust in God (Isaiah 26:3 ) and love His law (Psalm 119:165 —note that in Psalm 119:166-168 this love is clearly understood to mean obedience!) This Peace is clearly identified with a righteous life apart from which no one is able to find true Peace ( Isaiah 32:17 ; Isaiah 48:22 ; 1618650208_5 ). Thus Peace and righteousness are often linked in the Old Testament (Psalm 72:7 ; Psalm 85:10 ; Isaiah 9:7 ; Isaiah 32:17 ; Isaiah 48:18 ; Isaiah 60:17 ), as are Peace and justice (Isaiah 59:8 ). To be at Peace is to be upright (Malachi 2:6 ), to be faithful (2 Samuel 20:19 ), to be an upholder of the truth (Esther 9:30 ; Zechariah 8:19 ), and to practice justice (Isaiah 59:8 ; Zechariah 8:16 ). Throughout the Old Testament spiritual Peace is realized in relationship. ...
New Testament The Greek word eirene corresponds to the Hebrew shalom expressing the idea of Peace, well-being, restoration, reconciliation with God, and salvation in the fullest sense. God is “the God of Peace” ( Romans 15:33 ; Philippians 4:9 ; 1 Thessalonians 5:23 ; Hebrews 13:20 ). The Gospel is “the good news of Peace” (Ephesians 6:15 ; Acts 10:36 ) because it announces the reconciliation of believers to God and to one another (Ephesians 2:12-18 ). God has made this Peace a reality in Jesus Christ, who is “our Peace. In Him we discover that ultimate Peace which only God can give (John 14:27 ). This Peace is experienced as an inner spiritual Peace by the individual believer (Philippians 4:7 ; Colossians 3:15 ; Romans 15:13 ). Such Peace is a fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22 ) that forms part of the “whole armor of God” (Ephesians 6:11 ,Ephesians 6:11,6:13 ), enabling the Christian to withstand the attacks of the forces of evil. Thus, the New Testament gives more attention to the understanding of spiritual Peace as an inner experience of the individual believer than does the Old Testament. In both the Old and the New Testament, spiritual Peace is realized in being rightly related—rightly related to God and rightly related to one another

This Peace is the gift of God through Jesus Christ, 2 Thessalonians 3:16

Thank Offering, - The Peace offerings, unlike other sacrifices, were not ordained to be offered in fixed and regular course. The only constantly-recurring Peace offering appears to have been that of the two firstling lambs at Pentecost. (Leviticus 23:19 ) The general principle of the Peace offering seems to have been that it should be entirely spontaneous, offered as occasion should arise, from the feeling of the sacrificer himself. (Leviticus 19:5 ) On the first institution, (Leviticus 7:11-17 ) Peace offerings are divided into "offerings of thanksgiving" and "vows or freewill offerings;" of which latter class the offering by a Nazarite on the completion of his vow is the most remarkable. (Numbers 6:14 ) We find accordingly Peace offerings offered for the people on a great scale at periods of unusual solemnity or rejoicing. In two cases only -- (Judges 20:26 ; 2 Samuel 24:26 ) --peace offerings are mentioned se offered with burnt offerings at a time of national sorrow and fasting

Peace - ’ Besides the noun the following forms of the root occur in the writings of the Apostolic Age: εἰρηνεύειν, ‘to keep the Peace’ (never transitive, ‘to reconcile’) (Mark 9:50, Romans 12:18, 2 Corinthians 13:11, 1 Thessalonians 5:13); εἰρηνοποιός, ‘peacemaker’ (Matthew 5:9), on which see below; εἰρηνοποιεῖν, ‘to make Peace’ (Colossians 1:20), εἰρηνικός, ‘peaceable’ (James 3:17); for the meaning in Hebrews 12:11 see below. The root שלס covers a wide range of ideas, many of which have nothing to do with war and Peace. From this it must be explained that ‘peace’ in the OT has frequently a positive content, and that it is applied in many connexions to which it could scarcely have been transferred from its military use. Nor is the meaning of ‘prosperity’ the product of the experience that political Peace is indispensable to economic welfare. The Hiphil and Hophal forms of the verb are largely denominatives from the noun in its specialized meaning ‘peace,’ but they, also signify ‘to give execution to a plan or purpose’-again the idea of integration (Deuteronomy 20:12, Job 5:23; Job 23:14, Isaiah 44:26; Isaiah 44:28). The political notion of Peace itself goes back to the same idea, inasmuch as two parties become a unit in their relations towards outsiders or in mutual intercourse. Peace is not always the sequel of war; it may be in the form of alliance, the preventative of war (1 Samuel 7:14). The Peace which God gives or maintains for His people is ‘integrity,’ ‘soundness,’ ‘prosperity’ in the widest sense (Isaiah 45:7, Jeremiah 29:7). Even when ‘peace’ occurs in antithesis to war the associations are not purely negative. Peace as a religious bonum applies to the sphere of nature as well as of politics, and the former as well as the latter plays an important part in eschatological prophecy (Hosea 2:20 ff. The idea of Peace in relation to God Himself, in distinction from Peace in other relations, given or guaranteed by God, seems to occur in the OT only in Psalms 85:8 (but cf. Peace is the antithesis to the warfare that exists between God and the sinner. As this warfare (‘enmity’) is an objective state and not a mere figure for hostile disposition towards God on man’s part, so the Peace is an objectively established and maintained footing, on which God and the believer associate together. Paul has with doctrinal precision correlated the ideas of ‘enmity’ (Romans 5:10; Romans 11:28, Colossians 1:21), ‘reconciliation’ (Romans 5:10-11; Romans 11:15, 2 Corinthians 5:18-20, Colossians 1:21), and ‘peace’ (Romans 5:1; Romans 8:6; Romans 14:17). Although the subjective, emotional experience of an inner state of Peace is inseparable from this εἰρήνη πρὸς θεόν, yet the word itself does not in these contexts express it, but stands simply for the state of justification. This remains true, even if the correct reading in Romans 5:1 is the subjunctive εἰρήνην ἔχωμεν, ‘let us have Peace,’ for this cannot, any more than the καταλλάγητε τῷ θεῷ of 2 Corinthians 5:19, relate to the cultivation of a Peaceful disposition towards God; it must refer in both cases to the subjective appropriation through faith of the objective Peace which God establishes in Christ. In Philippians 4:7, Colossians 3:15 Peace is represented as guarding the hearts and thoughts and ruling in the hearts. This must be understood of objective Peace personified, and the result ascribed to this influence exercised by Peace covers far more than a feeling of tranquillity. As applied to the fellowship between believers mutually, Peace is a social conception, including the elements of harmony and organic co-operation (Romans 14:19, 1 Corinthians 7:15; 1 Corinthians 14:33, Galatians 5:22, Ephesians 4:3 [2], Hebrews 12:14, James 3:18; 1 Peter 3:11, 2 Peter 3:14). In regard to Ephesians 2:14-22 there is a difference of opinion among exegetes as to whether the reference of the Peace embodied in Christ is to Jewish and Gentile believers mutually considered, or fundamentally to God, so as to include only as a corollary Peace between the two component parts of the body of the Church. In Ephesians 2:14-15 Peace denotes the fellowship between Jews and Gentiles, but in Ephesians 2:17 (Isaiah 57:19) the Peace proclaimed by the gospel is the Peace with God, and the same idea is implied in Isaiah 57:16. ...
The other branch of the NT idea of religious Peace ramifies from the main OT stem. Paul at least, by the consciousness of the Peace of reconciliation existing with God, but its content is too rich and too positive to be exhausted by it. In this sense we find the word in the salutations at the beginning or close of the Epistles, usually associated with χάρις (Romans 1:7, 1 Corinthians 1:3, 2 Corinthians 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:11, Galatians 1:3; Galatians 6:16, Ephesians 1:2; Ephesians 6:23 [3], Philippians 1:2, Colossians 1:2, 1 Thessalonians 1:1, 2 Thessalonians 1:2; 2 Thessalonians 3:16, 1 Timothy 1:2, 2 Timothy 1:2, Titus 1:4, Philemon 1:3, 1 Peter 1:2; 1 Peter 5:14, 2 Peter 1:2, 2 John 1:3, 3 John 1:14, Revelation 1:4). The rich, positive content becomes apparent in such passages as the following: Luke 1:79 (opposite ‘darkness’ and ‘shadow of death’) Luke 2:14 (= the complete Messianic salvation, because ‘peace on earth’ is parallel to ‘glory in the highest,’ which has Messianic significance, and because the men who receive the Peace are characterized as objects of the Divine εὐδοκία; cf. also Luke 19:42), John 14:27; John 16:33, Acts 9:31; Acts 10:36 (= the object of the gospel-proclamation), Romans 2:10 (associated with δόξα and τιμή as the eschatological reward for working good) Romans 14:17, Romans 15:13; Romans 15:33, Romans 16:20 (the result of the conquest of Satan), Galatians 6:16 (‘mercy and Peace’), Ephesians 2:17 (content of the gospel-message) Ephesians 6:15 (‘the gospel of Peace’), Philippians 4:7, Colossians 3:15, 1 Thessalonians 5:3 (the opposite of eschatological peril = ἀσφαλεία), Hebrews 7:2 (Christ, like Melchizedek, King of Peace) Hebrews 12:11 (the fruit of righteousness consisting in Peace; cf. The general soteriological reference is also favoured by the fact that God is called ‘the God of Peace’ (Romans 15:33; Romans 16:20, 1 Corinthians 14:33, 2 Corinthians 13:11, Philippians 4:9, Hebrews 13:20), as conversely the Peace is also called ‘the Peace of God’ (Philippians 4:7). In the light of this wider, positive conception it becomes probable that the εἰρηνοποιοί of Matthew 5:9 are not merely promoters of Peace in the sense of reconcilers between man and man, but those who actively procure and produce Peace (= salvation) for others. ...
It will be noticed that the prophetic picture of political Peace among the nations is not reproduced in the NT. Pre-Christian Judaism, while making considerable use of the idea of Peace, remains at bottom particularistic, whilst Christianity is thoroughly universalistic, although the programme of political Peace is not explicitly enunciated in its writings. ...
The NT conception of Peace offers no real point of contact with the Stoic ἀπάθεια and the Epicurean άταραξἰα (cf. The Peace of the NT is not independence of outside conditions in the citadel of man’s subjectivity, but the fruit of an objective real salvation with God. Church, The Message of Peace, 1895, p

Salutation - ...
In the Ancient Near East, a salutation covered a wide range of social practices: exchanging a greeting (“Hail”), asking politely about another's welfare, expressing personal regard, and the speaking of a parting blessing (“Go in Peace”). Instead, Jesus endorsed a salutation when it signified the long-awaited presence of messianic “peace” (Hebrew, shalom ), that is the “peace” of the kingdom of God (Luke 10:5-13 ; Luke 19:42 ; John 14:27 ; John 20:21 ; Mark 15:18 ; compare Luke 2:14 ,Luke 2:14,2:29 ). Paul never opened his letters with this greeting; instead, the apostle fused the Greek word for the typical Hebrew blessing, “Peace” (einrene), with the noun form of the Greek blessing, “Grace” (charis), to yield the distinctly Christian salutation: “Grace and Peace” (charis kai eirene). By such a subtle change in the form of Greek letter writing, Paul was able to invoke the range of apostolic blessings found in Jesus: mercy from God (“grace”) and eternal well-being from God's presence (“peace”)

Peace - The Peace and war of nations, or among houses or families, or kingdoms, are terms with which every one is familiar. But the Scripture sense of the word Peace, and more especially the gospel signification of it, in respect to that Peace believers have with God in Christ makes it well worth attention in a work of this kind. ...
It may not perhaps have struck an ordinary reader, that the word Peace carries with it the idea that the breach then said to be made up presupposes that there had been a state of amity existing before the breach came in to interrupt it; and this is indeed the blessedness of the gospel. And there is another sweet thought connected with the gospel meaning of the word Peace, namely, that all the overturns for a reconciliation began on the part of God, the injured party; and all the Peace that follows becomes the sole result of his divine operation. "...
Such then is the Scripture sense of that Peace of God and Peace with God, in the blood and righteousness of God's dear Son, "which passeth all understanding, keeping the heart and mind, in Jesus Christ. "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth Peace and good-will toward men.

Such is the Christian's Peace. When the Christian is somewhat grown, and has wandered for awhile along the tortuous course of a gracious experience, his Peace will gather force like a flowing stream. Wait twenty or thirty years, till he has traversed yonder rich lowlands of fellowship with Christ in his sufferings, and conformity to his death, and you shall mark that the believer's rest will be like a river deep and broad, for he shall know the Peace which was our Master's precious legacy; and he will cast all his care upon God, who careth for him. True Peace will increase till it melts into the eternal rest of the beatific vision, where ...

And it is very blessed yet farther to trace the propriety of the name in reference to the church's connection and interest with her Lord; for she is a Shulamite indeed in the Peace and perfection of beauty put upon her by the comliness and perfection of Jesus
Salutation - "Peace" (shalom , from whence the oriental salaam ), including health or welfare of body and mind, was the constant salutation of Hebrew; as "joy" (chairein ) is the Greek salutation.

Latterly (1 Samuel 1:17) "go in Peace": no empty form in Christ's mouth (Mark 5:34; Luke 7:50; Luke 10:5; Luke 24:36; Acts 16:36). "Grace and Peace" is Paul's opening salutation in his epistles to churches, but in his three pastoral epistles, Timothy and Titus, "grace, mercy, and Peace"; for ministers of all men most need "mercy" for their ministry (2 Corinthians 4:1; 1 Corinthians 7:25; 1 Timothy 1:16)

"How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth Peace, that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation, that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!" (Isaiah 52:7) And, indeed, the gospel is, without exception, the best news JEHOVAH ever proclaimed to man, or man ever heard. Angels thought so, when at the command of God they posted down from heaven, at the birth of Christ, as if ambitious to be the first preachers of it to a lost world, and in a multitude of the heavenly host met together, to proclaim the blessed tidings to the Jewish shepherds, saying, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth, Peace, good will towards men

Greeting - ...
Among Semitic peoples the usual greeting was and is Peace: “Peace be to you, and Peace be to your house, and Peace be to all that you have” (1 Samuel 25:5-6 NAS; compare Luke 10:5 ). ...
Paul transformed the customary greeting charein into an opportunity for sharing the faith, substituting “grace [1] to you and Peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ” (Romans 1:7 ; 1 Corinthians 1:3 ; 2 Corinthians 1:2 ; Galatians 1:3 ; Ephesians 1:2 ; Ephesians 6:23-24 ; Titus 1:4 ). In Paul's opening greeting these terms always occur in this order, witnessing to the truth that Peace cannot be experienced apart from the prior experience of God's grace.

Offerings And Sacrifices - The Hebrew word normally translated "sacrifice" (zebah ) does not occur in Leviticus 1-3 until 3:1 in the introduction to the "peace offering" section (see also vv.

"...
The first occurrence of the term "peace offering" (seblamim, NIV "fellowship offering") is in Exodus 20:24 , where the Lord refers to it along with "burnt offerings" as part of the altar law: "Make an altar of earth for me and sacrifice on it your burnt offerings and fellowship offerings , your sheep and goats and your cattle. ...
After the tabernacle had been established the nation continued to offer burnt, grain, drink, and Peace offerings on solitary earthen altars as well as on the altar in the tabernacle. , Mount Ebal) and offer burnt and Peace offerings there as part of the initial covenant ceremony in the land (Deuteronomy 27:5-7 ). In some cases such altars and the burnt and/or Peace offerings presented on them were a means of calling on the name of the Lord in specific situations (see, e. From a literary point of view, the rules for burnt, grain, and Peace offerings in Leviticus 1-3 is a unified whole. ola ) and Peace offerings (Heb. The burnt offering was a way of calling on the Lord to pay attention to the needs, requests, and entreaties of his worshipers either independently or in association with the Peace offering. " The grain offering pericope in Leviticus 2 stands between the burnt and Peace offering chapters ( Leviticus 1,3 , respectively). This is as it should be since the grain offering was a regular part of a burnt or Peace offering along with a prescribed libation (Numbers 15:1-15 ). It was specifically legislated that libations along with grain offerings should normally accompany any burnt or Peace offering (Numbers 15:1-5 ). ...

Reconciliation - The expressions "reconciliation" and "making Peace" necessarily suppose a previous state of hostility between God and man, which is reciprocal. It is, indeed, a sad and humbling truth, and one which the Socinians in their discussions on the natural innocence of man are not willing to admit that by the infection of sin "the carnal mind is enmity to God," that human nature is malignantly hostile to God and to the control of his law; but this is far from expressing the whole of that relation of man in which, in Scripture, he is said to be at enmity with God, and so to need a reconciliation, the making of Peace between God and him. It is this judicial variance and opposition between God and man which is referred to in the term reconciliation, and in the phrase "making Peace," in the New Testament; and the hostility is, therefore, in its own nature, mutual. The latter, which belongs only to the converted, consists of the Peace of God, and salvation from wrath, Romans 5:9-10 . " Thus, says the Apostle, "he is our Peace;" but in what manner is the Peace effected? Not, in the first instance, by subduing the enmity of man's heart, but by removing the enmity of "the law. Paul properly treats of the Peace made between Jews and Gentiles; for neither does it follow from this argument, that it was beside his purpose to mention the Peace made for each with God

The typical hero, first righteous and therefore self-governed and blessed with the tranquillizing consciousness of the presence of God, appears to the writer as an anticipation of Him in whom alone righteousness and Peace are completely realized both in His own person and life and in His gifts to men. He argues in favour of an identification of Melchizedek with the Logos, whose priesthood, however, is viewed as a symbol of the action of reason in bringing righteousness and Peace to men (Mangey, i. (a) He was king as well as priest, and as priest-king he possessed the endowments of righteousness and Peace, and was able to impart them with royal bounty

Bruce, who says that some Arabs, to whom he gave the salam, or salutation of Peace, either made no reply, or expressed their astonishment at his impudence in using such freedom. The Jews in the days of our Lord seem to have generally observed the same custom; they would not address the usual compliment of, "Peace be with you," to either Heathens or publicans; the publicans of the Jewish nation would use it to their countrymen who were publicans, but not to Heathens, though the more rigid Jews refused to do it either to publicans or Heathens

Not until toward the close does the bride receive her name Shulamith (Song of Solomon 6:13), "the Peace receiver," and so the "prince's daughter" (Song of Solomon 7:1; compare Matthew 5:9). She explains her name (Song of Solomon 8:10) as expressing "one that found Peace" (Song of Solomon 8:10 margin). Not until her union with Solomon had been effected did she find Peace, and received her name accordingly (Romans 5:1).

Seventy (2) - ]'>[6] (3) In each case the burden of the message was ‘Peace’ and the ‘Kingdom of God. ’ Peace was and still is the favourite Eastern salutation; the Kingdom of God was the Jews’ highest aspiration. Peace would include Peace with God as well as with men, Peace of conscience, the Peace of discipleship to a perfect Master (Matthew 11:28-30): the Kingdom of God would be, not a mere external, but an internal theocracy, the reign of God within as well as over men (Matthew 12:28, Mark 4:26-27); and this Empire of God was Peace

Mediator - , "a go-between" (from mesos, "middle," and eimi, "to go"), is used in two ways in the NT, (a) "one who mediates" between two parties with a view to producing Peace, as in 1 Timothy 2:5 , though more than mere "mediatorship" is in view, for the salvation of men necessitated that the Mediator should Himself posses the nature and attributes of Him towards whom He acts, and should likewise participate in the nature of those for whom He acts (sin apart); only by being possessed both of deity and humanity could He comprehend the claims of the one and the needs of the other; further, the claims and the needs could be met only by One who, Himself being proved sinless, would offer Himself an expiatory sacrifice on behalf of men; (b) "one who acts as a gurantee" so as to secure something which otherwise would not be obtained

His words are stamped as His own by their delicate ease, which implies sensibility to every real aspect of the matter in hand, a sense of mastery and Peace.

Sacrifice - it is clear that the sin offering occupies the most important: place; the burnt offering comes next, and the meat offering or Peace offering last of all. Yet, in actual order of time it has been seen that the patriarchal sacrifices partook much more of the nature of the Peace offering and burnt offering, and that under the raw, by which was "the knowledge of sin," (Romans 3:20 ) the sin offering was for the first time explicitly set forth. The meat offering, the Peace or thank offering, the firstfruits, etc. The characteristic ceremony in the Peace offering was the eating of the flesh by the sacrificer. The typical sense of the meat offering or Peace offering is less connected the sacrifice of Christ himself than with those sacrifices of praise, thanksgiving, charity and devotion which we, as Christians, offer to God, and "with which he is well pleased," (Hebrews 13:15,16 ) as with an odor of sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable to God

So by loving concession shall we find Peace and room at last (Romans 12:18-21; John 14:2; Psalms 31:8; Psalms 118:5)
Salt - ...
So Jesus, cf6 "have salt in yourselves, and have Peace one with another" (Mark 9:50); as no sacrifice to God, and no food to man, is acceptable without salt, so prayers offered without "peace" of heart toward fellow men are savourless; a warning to the disciples who had just been disputing with one another, and judging, fellow men who used Jesus' name though not following the disciples (Mark 9:33-50)
Arbitration - The principle of arbitration is also an illustration of the grace of Peaceableness. ‘Blessed are the Peacemakers’ (Matthew 5:9). This truth finds full expression in the Epistles, where Peace, the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22), and the concomitant of righteousness, is contrasted with the strife and envy of sin, and is noted as a mark of the kingdom of God, who is the God of Peace
Naaman - But, if so, the prophet would hardly have dismissed him with a blessing, saying, "Go in Peace," 2 Kings 5:19 .

Jerusalem - The signification of the name is somewhat uncertain: some give it as 'the foundation of Peace;' others 'the possession of Peace. ' Its history has, alas, been anything but that of Peace; but Haggai 2:9 remains to be fulfilled: "in this place will I give Peace," doubtless referring to the meaning of 'Jerusalem. It is apparently symbolically called SALEM,'peace,' in Psalm 76:2 ;* and ARIEL, 'the lion of God,' in Isaiah 29:1,2,7 ; in Isaiah 52:1 'the holy city,' as it is also in Matthew 4:5 ; Matthew 27:53 . ...
* On the TELLAMARNA TABLETS(see THE TELL AMARNA TABLETS under 'Egypt') Jerusalem occurs several times as u-ru-sa-lim , the probable signification of which is 'city of Peace
Sacrifices - But this matter was made clearer afterwards in the separate appointment of sin-offerings and Peace-offerings in the Mosaic system. The sacrifices then offered are called burnt-offerings and Peace-offerings (Exodus 24:5). These consisted of two great classes, Sin-offerings and Peace-offerings. Peace-offerings, on the other hand, may be taken to include the Passover, and all offerings of first-fruits and tithes and bloodless sacrifices. Thus Christ acknowledged the one class (sin-offering) when He bade the leper ‘offer for thy cleansing what Moses commanded’ (Mark 1:44); and the other class (peace-offering) when He said, ‘Leave there thy gift before the altar’ (Matthew 5:24). As we have seen, the sacrifices offered at the making of the covenant were Peace-offerings. So in Hebrews, from the words ‘Let us come boldly’ (1 John 4:16) to ‘Let us draw near’ (Hebrews 10:22), the whole matter of our salvation is pictured under the form of access into the happy condition of being at Peace with God (cf. They do not rest in the enjoyment of God’s favour in this world, as the Jewish worshippers rejoiced before God and feasted on their Peace-offerings
Assurance - The Scriptural view is, that when sin is forgiven by the mercy of God through Christ, we are, by some means, assured of it, and Peace and satisfaction of mind take the place of anxiety and fear. "Being justified by faith we have Peace with God. ...
An assurance, therefore, that the sins which are felt to "be a burden intolerable" are forgiven, and that the ground of that apprehension of future punishment which causes the penitent to " bewail his manifold sins," is taken away by restoration to the favour of the offended God, must be allowed, or nothing would be more incongruous and impossible than the comfort, the Peace the rejoicing of spirit, which in the Scriptures are attributed to believers

" (6) In Romans 14:19 "the things which make for Peace" is, lit. , "the things of Peace
Joannes, Bishop of Antioch - The pertinacity with which Nestorius continued to promulgate the tenets which had proved so ruinous to the Peace of the church irritated John. John summoned Alexander of Hierapolis, Andrew of Samosata, Theodoret, and probably others, to Antioch and held a conference to draw up terms of Peace. Each party was desirous of Peace and disposed to concessions. 433, the act giving Peace to the Christian world was signed and dispatched to Alexandria, where it was announced by Cyril in the cathedral on Apr. John wrote to Theodosius thanking him for the Peace which his efforts had procured, and begged him to render it universal by restoring the deposed bishops. Isidore of Pelusium and other adherents of Cyril expressed a fear that he had made too large concessions; while John had given great offence to many of his warmest supporters, who accused him of truckling to powerful advocates of a hollow Peace to secure his position as bishop. During the next two years John sought to force the bishops of his patriarchate to accept the terms of Peace. The way towards Peace had been smoothed by the death of Nestorius's successor, Maximian, Apr. Proclus's influence was exerted in favour of Peace, and so successfully that all the remonstrant bishops, except Alexander of Hierapolis and five others, ultimately accepted the concordat and retained their sees. 54, 199) Theodosius wrote to the Oriental bishops that the church must not be disturbed by fresh controversy and that no one should presume to decide anything unfavourable to those who had died in the Peace of the church (Baluz
War - The Israelites were not to destroy non-Canaanite cities unless the people refused Israel’s terms of Peace. He preferred to work for Peace (Isaiah 9:6-7; Micah 4:3-4; Zechariah 9:9-10). ...
The Old Testament record...
In the early days of their settlement in Canaan, the Israelites enjoyed a fairly Peaceful existence and saw no need for a regular army. Whatever the circumstances, Christians must, like their God, work to achieve justice and Peace (cf. Isaiah 2:4; Isaiah 9:2-7; Isaiah 11:1-9; Matthew 5:6; Matthew 5:9; see JUSTICE; Peace)

And the fruit of righteousness is sown in Peace of them that make Peace” (James 3:17-18)
Genseric, King of the Vandals - 10, 435, a Peace with Valentinian, undertaking to pay a tribute for the territories he had conquered, and to leave unmolested those still held by Valentinian, sending his son Hunneric as a hostage. Some of the most distinguished clergy and laity of these provinces petitioned the king to be allowed to live in Peace under the Vandals. 441 a new Peace was concluded, by which Valentinian retained the three Mauritanias and part of Numidia, and ceded the remainder of his African dominions to Genseric, who divided the Zeugitane or proconsular province, in which was Carthage, among the Vandals and kept the rest in his own possession. According to Victor's account, Armogast, one of the number, refused, and was tightly bound with cords, but they broke like a spider's web; and when he was hung head downwards by one foot, he seemed to sleep as Peacefully as if in his bed. Genseric, however, in alarm, concluded Peace with Majorian. After this victory Genseric regained Sardinia and Tripoli, where the Roman arms had met with success, and ravaged the Mediterranean coasts more cruelly than before, till a Peace was concluded between him and the emperor Zeno

“Grace be to you, and Peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ” (Ephesians 1:2 ) is in all of Paul's epistles. It is always in that order, grace and Peace. Peace is the condition of the believer's heart after grace has done its work. They are in that order because there can be no Peace in the heart until grace has done its work. In the cross He brought Peace and provided access to God through the one Holy Spirit. As usual, Paul concluded his letter with a benediction, praying for Peace, love, faith, and grace for his beloved readers. Live under God's benediction of Peace, love, faith, and grace (Ephesians 6:23-24 )

Severus, Patriarch of Aquileia - They profess willingness, when Peace is restored, to attend and accept the decisions of a free council at Constantinople, and point out that the clergy and people of the suffragans of Aquileia are so zealous for the Three Chapters that, if the patriarch is compelled to submit by force, when future vacancies occur among his suffragans the new bishops would be compelled to seek consecration from the bishops of Gaul, and the province of Aquileia would thus be broken up (Mansi, x

Since the account includes the role of a speaking serpent in an environment of perfect Peace, beauty, and well-being for Adam and Eve, critical scholars have proposed that the account is a myth. Eve led Adam to join her, acting with hearts deviated from God's stipulated way of life, service, and Peace. They were now no longer at Peace in a wholesome, well-functioning relationship with God, nor with each other, for they were quick to shift blame. They experienced the horrible reality of death, which basically means to have torn apart what belongs together for the exercise and enjoyment of love, Peace, goodness, contentment, and joy

Lukewarmness - To overcome such a state of mind, we should consider how offensive it is to God: how incongruous with the very idea and nature of true religion; how injurious to Peace and felicity of mind; how ungrateful to Jesus Christ, whose whole life was labour for us and our salvation; how grievous to the Holy Spirit; how dreadful an example to those who have no religion; how unlike the saints of old, and even to our enemies in the worst of causes; how dangerous to our immortal souls, since it is indicative of our want of love to God, and exposes us to just condemnation, Amos 6:1

The Hebrew nation owed the long Peace of Solomon the son's reign to the bravery and wisdom of the father
Augustus (2) - ...
As this new era approached, signs were multiplying of a desire for Peace on the part of ruler and ruled, though it is scarcely true that the actual year of the birth at Bethlehem was distinguished by the prevalence of universal Peace. 13–9, belongs the famous ‘Altar of Peace,’ whose actual site has been laid bare within very recent years (1903–1904) under the Via in Lucina, a little way off from the Corso, the old Flaminian Way. The very same year in which Augustus became Pontifex Maximus owing to the death of his former co-triumvir Lepidus, the Senate decreed the erection of an ‘Altar of Peace,’ which at first was to have been set up in the Senate-house, but was afterwards placed on the edge of the Campus Martius. 13), ‘when Peace throughout the whole dominions of the Roman people by land and sea had been obtained by victories,’ and ‘only twice before his birth since the foundation of the city,’ in all five times up to the Christian era. ...
The altar was a splendid tribute to Peace, but it was a Peace after many and bloody victories, reminding us of the saying, ‘where they make a desert they call it Peace’ (Tac. Agricola, 30), and it was also a Peace that was not to last. Yet there the altar stood on the field of Mars, as the reign of the ‘Prince of Peace’ was ushered in, and became for ages thereafter a witness to the Pax Romana of the Augustan age

Think, Devise - The foolish person, when he holds his Peace, is “counted” as wise ( Peace offerings be eaten at all on the third day, it shall not be accepted, neither shall it be imputed unto him that offereth it; it shall be an abomination” ( Entry Into Jerusalem - The washing of the feet, the entry, and the cleansing of the Temple, stand together as dramatic representations of the principles and ideas of the Kingdom of God; of the humility and self-denial required in the life of the Christian; of the mixture of condescension and majesty in the manner of the King’s coming; and of the Peace He gives and of the judgment that follows in His steps. The lament over the city, the retort to the Pharisees’ objection, ‘If these should hold their Peace,’ etc. The song is, ‘Peace in heaven and glory in the highest,’ a seeming adaptation of the ‘Hosanna,’ etc. The harmony between the two offices of the Messiah as king and priest is well described in Zechariah 6:13 ‘and the counsel of Peace shall be between the two’ (so Rosenm.

Religious Experience - Jesus Himself expressly affirms this, and refers to Naaman the Syrian, the widow of Zidon, the Roman centurion, and the Syrophœnician woman as possessing better religious experience than their Jewish neighbours, and definitely announces that ‘many’ shall come from the heathen nations and enter the future Kingdom in Peace (John 5:23-240; John 12:23, Luke 4:25-28, Mark 7:24, Matthew 8:10; Matthew 15:28). They had been ‘prepared for the Lord’ (Mark 1:17), and were ‘prayerful,’ ‘devout,’ and ‘righteous’ people who ‘rejoiced in God,’ being ‘filled with the Holy Ghost,’ and could depart this world ‘in Peace’ (Luke 1:6; Luke 1:47; Luke 1:67; Luke 2:25-29, cf. He showed no hesitancy in calling Himself ‘meek and lowly,’ while in almost the same breath He demanded absolute submission of intellect and will from all who expected to remain His ‘friends,’ or hoped to be at Peace with God hereafter (e. Yet, notwithstanding all this, He is represented in every Gospel as being peculiarly calm, sincere, humble, and self-forgetful, possessing a heart of singular purity, having not the slightest doubt of His own right relationship to God, trusting the inner witness perfectly, and constantly possessing a Peace ‘deep as the unfathomed sea,’ which Peace He believed He could impart to others. ‘Jesus’), though believing that Jesus never claimed to be the Messiah, at the same time acknowledges that ‘his most striking characteristic was his claim that spiritual Peace and salvation were to be found in the mere acceptance of his leadership. it is not even remembered that Jesus ever promised ‘joy,’ or ‘peace,’ or ‘rest. the transforming principle is Jesus, who is ‘the Word’ and ‘the Life,’ and the result is ‘peace’ (John 3:4, John 6:33, John 14:27, John 17:3)

Josiah - His tenderness of heart (conscience) and his humbling himself before God with tears and rent garments brought God's promise through Huldah that he should be "gathered to his grave in Peace," and "should not see the evil God was about to bring on" Jerusalem.

Enthusiasm - On the other hand, if the mind be enlightened, if the will which was perverse be renovated, detached from evil, and inclined to good; if the powers be roused to exertion for the promotion of the divine glory, and the good of men; if the natural corruptions of the heart be suppressed; if Peace and joy arise from a view of the goodness of God, attended with a spiritual frame of mind, a heart devoted to God, and a holy, useful life: however this may be branded with the name of enthusiasm, it certainly is from God, because bare human efforts, unassisted by him, could never produce such effects as these

" That reconciliation is a matter of his "making Peace through his blood, shed on the cross" ( Colossians 1:20 ). This theme is developed in John 11:7 , where it is made plain that Peace with God and Peace with one another through Christ belong together. "He himself is our Peace, " breaking down "the dividing wall of hostility" between Jew and Gentile, "making Peace, " and in one body reconciling both to God by the cross.

In Genesis 1:29 only plants were given as food for people, and the picture of the garden in Genesis 2 is one of Peace between animals and Adam.

Priest (2) - (γ) The meaning of the title ‘king of Salem’ suggests the idea of Peace. The order and connexion of righteousness and Peace are noted in Hebrews. First comes righteousness as the basis of relation to God, and then Peace as the outcome of righteousness. Righteousness without Peace vindicates the Law and punishes sin, Peace without righteousness ignores the Law and condones sin. Righteousness and Peace when combined honour the Law while pardoning sin. Does it not betoken a lack of spiritual perception to demand that Christ should always be doing something? Why may we not be content with the thought that He is there, and that in His presence above is the secret of Peace, the assurance of access, and the guarantee of permanent relation with God? It is just at this point that one essential difference between type and antitype is noticed

Intercession of Christ - Christ appears before God with his own body; but whether he intercedes vocally or not cannot be known: though it is most probable, I think, that he does not: however, it is certain that he does not intercede in like manner as when on earth, with prostration of body, cries and tears, which would be quite inconsistent with his state of exaltation and glory; nor as supplicating an angry judge, for Peace is made by the blood of the cross; nor as litigating a point in a court of judicature; but his intercession is carried on by showing himself as having done, as their surety, all that law and justice could require, by representing his blood and sacrifice as the ground of his people's acceptance with the Father, Revelation 5:6
Infant Communion - and the sacrifices they ate of were chiefly Peace-offerings, which became the common food to all that were clean in the family, and were not looked upon as acts of devotion to such a degree as our eucharist is; though, indeed, they were a token of their acknowledging the divinity of that God to whom they had been offered, 1 Corinthians 10:18

Justice - He seeks to make Peace between them; having beard both sides, he declares who is right and who is wrong, and settles the form of satisfaction which the latter should make; but his judgment has no binding force, no power other than that of moral suasion; influence is brought to bear by the members of the famity of the one declared to be in the wrong, urging him to submit, the earlier régime thus coming into play, in a modified way; but if he is not to be prevailed upon, the issue is decided by the sword. One of the worst results, however, of this was that the motives of administering justice became different; in the old days, when the sheik, or the city elder, was called upon to decide an issue, he did it rather in the capacity of a friend who desired Peace between two other friends than as a strictly legal official; his interest in the disputants, as being both of his own kin, or at all events both members of the same community to which he belonged, impelled him to do his utmost to make Peace. It was otherwise when a stranger had to decide between two men of whom he knew nothing; he had no personal interest in them, nor would it have been his main endeavour to try to secure a lasting Peace between the two, as had been the case in earlier days among the sheiks and city elders; the tie of kinship was absent

Leviticus - Aaron's "holding his Peace" under the stroke is a marvelous exhibition of grace; yet his not eating the sin offering in the holy place shows his keen paternal anguish which excused his violation of the letter of the law in Moses' judgment. Leviticus 1-3, contain the first Decalogue, namely, the burnt offering in three sections, the meat offering in four, and the Peace offering in three
Blessing And Cursing - ...
Words of blessing also are used as a salutation or greeting, with an invocation of blessing as a stronger greeting than “peace” (shalom , Genesis 48:20 ). Aaron's benediction both proclaims and petitions the Lord's blessing: “The Lord bless thee, and keep thee: The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee Peace” (Numbers 6:24-26 )

Fruit of the Spirit - The fruit of the Holy Spirit's work in the life of the individual Christian, which is enumerated in Galatians 5:22-23 , can be described as follows: an active love for God and one's fellowman; a rejoicing in all kinds of circumstances; Peacefulness and serenity of character and Peacemaking among people; patience and longsuffering with persons, some of whom may not be easy to get along with; kindness toward others; goodness that seeks to aid others; faithfulness and dependability in one's relationships with God and other people; gentleness and meekness in accepting God's will and in dealing with others; and the ability to keep oneself in check and under control in all kinds of circumstances. The Christian should use whatever gift or gifts he or she may have been given lovingly, joyfully, Peacefully, patiently, kindly, and in keeping with the other fruit of the Spirit. The Peace of God is something the Christian is expected to enjoy (Philippians 4:7 ). The believer is commanded to continue living at Peace with all people (Romans 12:18 ) and to seek to be reconciled with those who consider themselves enemies (Matthew 5:23-24 )
Refuge - As the man-slayer found in this city of refuge a blessed exchange, and a safe inclosure, both under one, so soul-murderers, when taking shelter in Christ, barter their sins for his righteousness, and find Peace and safety in the blood of his cross. So Ramoth and Golan both read with an eye to Jesus, as they express exaltation and joy, may be supposed to imply the raising up of the depressed spirits of a sinner when fleeing to Christ for refuge, and finding him all he stands in need of, as well as that "joy and Peace in belie ving, when abounding in hope through the power of the Holy Ghost
Water - “Water” of oppression or affliction is so designated because it is drunk in prison: “Put this fellow in the prison, and feed him with bread of affliction and with water of affliction, until I come in Peace” (1 Kings 22:27). ” Rest and Peace are figured by waters of rest, or quiet waters: “… He leadeth me beside the still waters” ( Heaven - Instead of the land of Canaan, we have heaven; for the earthly Jerusalem, we have the heavenly, the city of the living God; in place of the congregation of Israel after the flesh, we have the general assembly and church of the first-born, that is, all true believers "made perfect;" for just men in the imperfect state of the old dispensation, we have just men made perfect in evangelical knowledge and holiness; instead of Moses, the mediator of the old covenant, we have Jesus the Mediator of the new and everlasting covenant; and instead of the blood of slaughtered animals, which was sprinkled upon the Israelites, the tabernacle, and all the vessels of the sanctuary, to make a typical atonement, we have the blood of the Son of God, which was shed for the remission of the sins of the whole world; that blood which doth not, like the blood of Abel, call for vengeance but for mercy, which hath made Peace between heaven and earth, effected the true and complete atonement for sin, and which therefore communicates Peace to the conscience of every sinner that believes the Gospel

Jeremiah - ...

Hero - The messianic expectation included the hope that the Messiah would be “mighty”: “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder; and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace” ( Court - In times of Peace, residents of the city might build homes and workshops for themselves outside the wall and establish a separate quarter

Leontius, Bishop of Antioch - Yet we may charitably think that the gentleness and love of Peace which all attest were not mere hypocrisy, and may impute his toleration of heretics to no worse cause than insufficient appreciation of the serious issues involved

Trust - 2 Corinthians 12:9), and by prayer and supplication finds that God’s Peace, far surpassing all understanding of men, keeps guard over his heart and thoughts in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:6-7). Christian joy and Peace are effects of a power beyond ourselves. The full realization of the meaning of Christ’s promise of Peace is not to be had at once. But if there is established the relation of such confidence in God that all our weaknesses, doubts, fears, and sins drive us to our sure Helper, the goal of perfect Peace will surely be reached at last (cf
the Ten Virgins - The fruit of the Holy Spirit in God and in man, on earth and in heaven, is love, joy, Peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness. Do not put off walking in the light till you feel your heart full of light and love and joy and Peace and all such holy illumination. As soon as you begin to ask for the Spirit of love and joy and Peace to be shed abroad in your heart, begin yourself to shed that Spirit abroad in all your life. Let all your words and deeds, let all your moods of mind, and all your affections of heart, be full of love and joy and Peace, and He will not fail to work in you to will and to do of His good pleasure
Henoticon, the - Zeno readily gave credence to these charges, and when it was further represented that, if he recognized Peter Mongus, the deposed patriarch, Peace would be restored, he wrote to Simplicius, stating his grounds for hesitating to sanction the appointment of John, and urging the restoration of Peter Mongus to put an end to the distractions of the church. The resulting Peace was naturally more apparent than real and satisfied no one. Zeno and Acacius had "made a solitude and called it Peace. This choice was fatal to the restoration of Peace in the East on the terms of the "Henoticon
Leviticus - (3) The Peace, or shared, offering; the sacrifice of part of the animal and a communal meal from the remainder of the meat (Leviticus 3:1-17 ). Offer Peace offerings (Leviticus 3:1-17 ). Give priestly instructions for Peace offerings (Leviticus 7:11-38 )
Feasts - The feast of tabernacles commemorates the establishment of God's people in the land of promise, their pleasant and Peaceful home, after the 40 years of wandering in the wilderness, living in shifting tents. ...
Solomon (appropriately to his name, which means king of Peace) also did so, for his reign was preeminently the period of Peaceful possession when every man dwelt under his own vine and figtree (1 Kings 4:25); immediately after that the last relic of wilderness life was abolished by the ark being taken from under curtains and deposited in the magnificent temple of stone in the seventh month (2 Chronicles 5:3), the feast of tabernacles was celebrated on the 15th day, and on the 23rd Solomon sent the great congregation away glad in heart for the goodness that the Lord had showed unto David, Solomon, and Israel His people. The antitypical feast of tabernacles shall be under the antitypical Joshua, Jesus the Captain of our salvation, the antitypical Solomon, the Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6; Revelation 7:9-17). That feast shall remind Israel of hardships now past, and of salvation and Peace now realized on earth, so that "the voice of rejoicing and salvation shall be in the tabernacles of the righteous" (Psalms 118:15)
Cattle - Cattle played a most important role in Israel's sacrifices: burnt offering (Leviticus 1:3 ), Peace offering (Leviticus 3:1 ), sin offering (Leviticus 4:3 ). The Bible points to the day when the calf and lion can live together in Peace (Isaiah 11:7 )
Care - ...

Abner - Received favorably and feasted by David, after his wife Michal was taken from Phaltiel and restored to him, Abner went forth from Hebron in Peace. But Joab, by a message, brought him back from the well of Sirah, and, taking him aside to speak Peaceably, murdered him, Abishai also being an accomplice, for the blood of Asahel (Numbers 35:19; 2 Samuel 3:30; 2 Samuel 3:39), and on Joab's part also, as appears likely from Amasa's case, from fear of Abner's becoming a rival in the chief command (2 Samuel 20:4-10)
Anglo-Saxon Church - The invaders set up a number of independent kingdoms, often at war with each other; they were evangelized, as the chances of Peace or alliance might offer, in the following order: Kent (See of Canterbury founded 597; Rochester, 604); Essex (London, 604); Northumbria (including the district called Deira; York, 625); East Anglia (Dunwich, 630); Mercia (Lichfield, 656); Wessex (Winchester, 669); Sussex, the neighboring kingdom to Kent, was the last to be converted (Selsey, 708)
Fierceness - It is present in the Nazareth sermon in His OT illustrations of prophets not honoured in their own country (Luke 4); in His declaration of war with evil,—‘I am come to send fire on the earth’ (Luke 12:49), and ‘I came not to send Peace but a sword’ (Matthew 10:34); it even finds expression in the very phrase γεννἠματα ἐχιδνῶν used by the Baptist (Matthew 12:34)
Eating - (Luke 15:2) How blessedly the apostle speaks on the subject: "The kingdom of God is not meat and drink, but righteousness, and Peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost

Roman Empire - Augustus divided the provinces into two classes -- (1) Imperial; (2) Senatorial; retaining in his own hands, for obvious reasons, those provinces where the presence of a large military force was necessary, and committing the Peaceful and unarmed provinces to the senate. " ( Galatians 4:4 ) The general Peace within the limits of the empire the formation of military roads, the suppression of piracy, the march of the legions, the voyages of the corn fleets, the general in crease of traffic, the spread of the Latin language in the West as Greek had already spread in the East, the external unity of the empire, offered facilities hitherto unknown for the spread of a world-wide religion

Zechariah, Book of - With glorious promises for the Peace and prosperity of Jerusalem, with the nations coming to seek Jehovah, the original Book of Zechariah closes. Zechariah loves, rather, to dwell upon Peace and prosperity, upon sin removed, and the Divine spirit inflowing. This is followed by the prediction of the coming king of Peace a beautiful lyric which breaks in sharply upon the context, and is followed by a prediction of successful resistance to the Greeks, and victory given through Jehovah
the Unprofitable Servant - He will not take rest nor Peace of mind short of the most absolute perfection in his services, leaving no room for the rest and the Peace that Christ offers, and Himself is, to all His true-hearted servants. Now what is that but making Christ of none effect as your High Priest? What is that but making Him die, and rise again, and intercede for you, in vain? "I have found," says this eminent theologian and evangelical preacher, "this mode of reasoning successful in enabling the mourner to detect the source of his causeless sorrows, and to recover that Peace of mind which results from a simple and unhesitating reliance upon our great High Priest, for the pardon of all our sins, and for the acceptance of all our services
Sacrifice - The major categories were the burnt offering (Leviticus 1; Leviticus 6:8-13), the cereal (or grain) offering (Leviticus 2; Leviticus 6:14-23), the Peace (or fellowship) offering (Leviticus 3; Leviticus 7:11-38), the sin offering (Leviticus 4:1-5; Leviticus 4:13; Leviticus 6:24-30) and the guilt (or repayment) offering (Leviticus 5:14-19; Leviticus 6:1-7; Job 42:8). Cereal and wine offerings were not offered alone, but always with burnt offerings or Peace offerings. ...
The Peace offering expressed fellowship, a truth demonstrated in the meal that accompanied it
Reconciliation - ‘made Peace’ (Colossians 1:20; cf. ‘preached Peace,’ Acts 10:36, Ephesians 2:17; ‘have Peace,’ Romans 5:1); ‘made nigh’ (Ephesians 2:13); ‘turned unto God’ (1 Thessalonians 1:9-10), etc
Micah, Theology of - In Micah it embraces the remnant's restoration from Babylon (4:9-10), the birth of the Messiah (5:2), and his universal and everlasting Peace (5:5-6). Reflecting upon what he saw and heard he predicts for these people a kingdom of Peace: "they will beat their swords into plowshares" (v. He will be their Peace, protecting them from all their enemies, including Assyria, the very symbol of oppression (vv
King, Kingship - How was Israel to understand the relationship between their obligation to Yahweh, the divine King, on the one hand, and their obligation to the human king on the other? What was the role of the human king in ancient Israel, and to what extent was this role realized? What conditions gave rise to the idea of the coming of a future messianic king who would someday establish Peace and justice in all the earth?...
It is important to understand the way in which the Old Testament presents the relationship between divine and human kingship. ...
This approach, however, does violence to the many positive biblical statements concerning God's design for the institution of kingship in the context of this sovereign plan for the redemption of his people, and ultimately for the uNIVersal triumph of Peace and justice on the earth. During his reign wars will cease and Peace and justice will be established in the earth (Isaiah 2:1-5 ; 11:1-10 ; Amos 9:11-15 )
Marriage - The Peace of human society, in cutting off a principal source of contention, by assigning one or more women to one man, and protecting his exclusive right by sanctions of morality and law. A Christian state recognizes marriage as a branch of public morality, and a source of civil Peace and strength. It is connected with the Peace of society by assigning one woman to one man, and the state protects him, therefore, in her exclusive possession
Reconciliation - ‘made Peace’ (Colossians 1:20; cf. ‘preached Peace,’ Acts 10:36, Ephesians 2:17; ‘have Peace,’ Romans 5:1); ‘made nigh’ (Ephesians 2:13); ‘turned unto God’ (1 Thessalonians 1:9-10), etc
Evangelize, Evangelism - Israel will know Peace, good, and salvation (52:7). ...
The message Jesus proclaims is revelational (Acts 10:36 ) and points to the arrival of endtime salvation in terms of the coming of God's reign or of Peace (Matthew 24:14 ; Mark 1:14-15 ; Luke 8:1 ; Acts 10:36 ; Ephesians 2:17 ; cf. The divine enablement in proclaiming the good news is a grace given; a spiritual gifting from the risen and exalted Lord, so much the work of Christ that Paul can say that the risen One himself comes and preaches Peace to those who are afar off and to those who are near (1Col 15:3-4 ; 3:2,8 ; 4:11 ; 6:19 ). Every member must have feet shod "with the readiness that comes from the gospel of Peace" (Ephesians 6:15 )
Thessalonians, First Epistle to the - Paul’s host, who is bound over to keep the Peace. A general admonition to the church to respect its leaders and to cultivate Peace ( 1 Thessalonians 5:12-13 ) leads out into a beautiful series of short exhortations, like a ‘string of glittering diamonds’ ( 1 Thessalonians 5:14-22 ), prayer and salutation ( 1 Thessalonians 5:23-26 ), an injunction that the letter be read to all the brethren ( 1 Thessalonians 5:27 ), and final benediction ( 1 Thessalonians 5:28 )
Thessalonica - As the Peace of the city had been disturbed, the angry passions of the ‘wild beast’ aroused, and a dangerous state of public feeling created, they felt justified in binding over the Apostle’s friends-Jason and others-to keep the Peace, and in the circumstances this could be done only if those friends advised the man who was the innocent cause of the disturbance to leave the town
Tears - In each of these cases it may be useful to notice that tears were turned into joy; for to the penitent woman Christ said, ‘Go in Peace’; Mary’s grief was changed to adoring rapture when the risen Saviour pronounced her name; and to Peter, by a special revelation of grace, He granted the blessedness of the man whose transgression is forgiven and whose sin is covered. The sorrows which were about to swamp Jerusalem in a flood of woe wrung from His heart the agonizing cry, ‘If thou hadst known in this day, even thou, the things which belong unto Peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes’ (Luke 19:42)
Timothy, the Second Epistle to - Hence, "mercy" is inserted between "grace" and "peace" in the pastoral epistles for the first time; in the former epistles he has" grace and Peace" only
Simeon - Then he took him up in his arms, and blessed God, and said: "Lord, now lettest Thou Thy servant depart in Peace, according to Thy word: for mine eyes have seen Thy salvation. They had no Peace in their hearts, or in their tongues at Him, till they had eaten Him up and annihilated Him
Arians - Constantine attended in person, and strongly recommended Peace and unanimity. Successive emperors took different sides, and thus was the Peace of the church agitated for many years, and practical religion sacrificed alternately to the dogmas or the interests of one party or the other; and each was in turn excommunicated, fined, imprisoned, or banished
Reformation - Soon after the conclusion of the Peace at Nuremburg, died John, elector of Saxony, who was succeeded by his son John Frederic, a prince of invincible fortitude and magnanimity, but whose reign was little better than one continued train of disappointments and calamities. This conference, however, was, for certain reasons, removed to the diet that was to be held at Ratisbon the same year, and in which the principal subject of deliberation was a memorial presented by a person unknown, containing a project of Peace. The elector of Saxony and landgrave of Hesse, who were the chief supporters of the Protestant cause, upon this, took proper measures to prevent their being surprised and overwhelmed by a superior force; but, before the horrors of war commenced, the great reformer Luther died in Peace at Ayselben, the place of his nativity, in 1546. During this interval, therefore, the emperor judged it necessary to fall upon some method of accommodating the religious differences, and maintaining Peace until the council so long expected should be finally obtained. By this sudden and unforeseen accident, Charles was so much dispirited, that he was willing to make Peace almost on any terms. To this Peace Albert, marquis of Brandenburg, refused to subscribe; and continued the war against the Roman Catholics, committed such ravages in the empire, that a confederacy was at last formed against him. After various debates the following acts were passed on the twenty-fifth of September:...
That the Protestants who followed the confession of Augsburg should be for the future considered as entirely free from the jurisdiction of the Roman pontiff and from the authority and superintendence of the bishops; that they were left at perfect liberty to enact laws for themselves relating to their religious sentiments, discipline, and worship; that all the inhabitants of the German empire should be allowed to judge for themselves in religious matters, and to join themselves to that church whose doctrine and worship they thought the most pure and consonant to the spirit of true Christianity; and that all those who should injure or prosecute any person under religious pretences, and on account of their opinions, should be declared and proceeded against as public enemies of the empire, invaders of its liberty, and disturbers of its Peace
Eusebius of Caesarea - For nearly half a century—a longer period than at any other time since its foundation—the church had enjoyed uninterrupted Peace as regards attacks from without. ...
Not long after the restoration of Peace (a. Among the earliest results of the Peace was the erection of a magnificent basilica at Tyre under the direction of his friend Paulinus, the bishop. The explanations were so far satisfactory that for the sake of Peace he subscribed to the creed. The final Peace of the church seemed as far distant as ever. The stress which Eusebius lays on Constantine's desire to secure Peace on this, as on all other occasions, suggests that that was a predominant idea in the writer's own mind, though perhaps not unmixed with other influences. But it would probably comprise any martyrdoms which occurred before the long Peace that preceded the outbreak of the last persecution under Diocletian
Perfection (of Jesus) - And Peace rests upon all He does. The mountain with its Peace and quietness, its hours of prayer and still thought, was His place of transfiguration. But that did not touch the inward joy and Peace of His faith. But Peace, ‘subsisting at the heart of endless agitation,’ was His. Peace breathes through it, Peace ‘whose other names are rapture, power, clear sight, and love. ’ Only twice during that night was this Peace greatly disturbed: in Gethsemane when He prayed, ‘Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me’ ( Priest - In Peace they ministered as judges and expounded the law to the people
Vine, Vineyard - As in the case of the olive, the culture of the vine needs a Peaceful, settled population, as the plants require several years’ care before bearing fruit ( Zephaniah 1:13 ), and constant attention if they are to maintain their excellence; hence to sit under one’s ‘own vine and fig tree’ was a favourite image of Peace ( 1 Kings 4:25 , Micah 4:4 , Zechariah 3:10 )

Ignatius - on his arrival in Troas-Ignatius seems to have given up all anxiety about the Church of Antioch: ‘Seeing that in answer to your prayer and to the tender sympathy which ye have in Christ Jesus, it hath been reported to me that the church which is in Antioch of Syria hath Peace, it is becoming for you as a church of God, to appoint a deacon to go thither as God’s ambassador, that he may congratulate them when they are assembled together, and may glorify the Name’ (Philad. He writes to Polycarp: ‘Seeing that the church which is in Antioch of Syria hath Peace, as it hath been reported to me, through your prayers, I myself also have been the more comforted since God hath banished my care’ (vii. To the Smyrnaeans he is even more explicit: ‘It is meet that your church should appoint, for the honour of God, an ambassador of God that he may go as far as Syria and congratulate them because they are at Peace, and have recovered their proper stature, and their proper bulk hath been restored to them’ (τὸ ἴδιον σωματεῖον; xi. If it were a question of a persecution limited to Antioch, it would not be very clear how Peace could have restored its stature to the Church of Antioch, i. We are, then, led to suppose that it is not Peace after persecution but Peace after discord that is meant
Atonement - Colossians 1:20 ‘having made Peace through the blood of his cross’). Up to the Exodus, we have only the generic type of the burnt-offering; the Exodus itself gave birth to the Passover, in which blood sprinkled gave protection from destruction; at the ratification of the Covenant, Peace-offerings appear with burnt-offerings ( Exodus 20:24 ; Exodus 24:5 ); finally, the Levitical ritual provided a cultus in which the idea of atonement had a leading place. It is to be noted generally that the animal sacrifices were of four kinds the burnt-offering, the sin-offering, the guilt-offering (a species of sin-offering which included a money-compensation to the person injured), the Peace-offering. The burnt-offering was wholly consumed; in the case of the Peace-offering a feast was held with part of the flesh. ...
The design of all these sacrifices (even of the Peace-offering, as features of the ritual show) was ‘to make atonement’ for the sin of the offerer, or of the congregation (Leviticus 1:4 ; Leviticus 4:20 ; Leviticus 4:26 ; Leviticus 4:31 ; Leviticus 5:6 ; Leviticus 17:11 etc
Canaan - Sidon, Area, Arvad, and Zemara or Simra (Genesis 15:19-21) originally were Canaanite; afterward they fell under the Phoenicians, who were immigrants into Syria from the shores of the Persian gulf, Peaceable traffickers, skillful in navigation and the arts, and unwar-like except by sea. ...
With these the Israelites were on friendly terms; but with the Canaanites fierce and war-like, having chariots of iron, Israel was commanded never to be at Peace, but utterly to root them out; not however the Arvadite. sent three letters to the Canaanites, before the Israelites invaded it, proposing three things: Let those who choose to fly, fly; let those who choose Peace, enter into treaty; let those who choose war, take up arms. The Israelites, in approaching the cities of the seven doomed nations, were to offer Peace on condition of their emigrating forever from their own country, or else renouncing idolatry, embracing the Noachian patriarchal religion, resigning their land and nationality, and becoming slaves. But "there was not a city that made Peace with the children of Israel save the Hivites, the inhabitants of Gibeon; all other they took in battle
Blessing (2) - ]'>[10] The characteristic word employed in greeting and farewell is ‘peace’ (Heb. ]'>[11] Thus the regular formula of greeting is ‘Peace be to thee’ (Judges 6:23, Daniel 10:19), and, for farewell, ‘Go in Peace’ (cf. ‘To greet’ is expressed in Hebrew by the phrase ‘to ask of a person concerning Peace (welfare)’ (cf
Rome And the Roman Empire - These were Peaceful provinces requiring no unusual military presence. Many ancient cults were revived, further accentuating the time-honored view that the Peace and prosperity of the republic was dependent upon the proper observance of religious duty. The pax Romana (peace of Rome) which Augustus had inaugurated was preserved, providing easy, safe travel throughout the empire. ...
The success of the Roman Empire depended upon the ability of the legions to keep Peace throughout the world
Priest, Priesthood - The ritual procedure itself involved splashing the blood of the burnt and Peace offerings (v. There is a striking similarity between this ritual in Exodus 24 and the consecration of the Aaronic priests by putting some of the blood of the ordination Peace offering on the right ear, thumb, and big toe of Aaron and his sons, and afterwards splashing some of it around on the altar ( Exodus 29:20 ; Leviticus 8:23-24 ). ...
Finally, the cult granted the entire nation the privilege of eating at the Lord's table on regular occasions in accordance with the Peace offering regulations in Leviticus 3,7:11-34
the Samaritan Who Shewed Mercy - ...
And now, my brethren, is it not a cause of the profoundest praise and thanksgiving to Almighty God that Peace has come, and that there is not a man on the face of the whole earth that we any more wish to see wounded and half-dead? And must it not be a sweet thing to our King to think about on his bed, and to all his Royal House, that he has no enemy now to his throne and sceptre and crown in all the wide world.

Nativity of Christ - Satiated with victory, the first emperors abandoned all thoughts of new conquests; Peace, an unknown blessing, was enjoyed through all that vast empire; or if a slight war was waged on an outlying and barbarous frontier, far from disturbing the tranquillity, it scarcely drew the attention of mankind.

Barrenness - Then did the wife forget her jealousy, and provoke, instead of resenting, the faithlessness of her husband, Numbers 25:1-35 ; Genesis 30:3 ; Genesis 30:9 ; then did the mother forget a parent's part, and teach her own child treachery and deceit, Genesis 25:23 ; Genesis 27:13 ; then did daughters turn the instincts of nature backward, and deliberately work their own and their father's shame, Genesis 19:31 ; then did the daughter-in-law veil her face, and court the incestuous bed, Genesis 38:14 ; and to be childless, was to be a by- word, Genesis 16:5 ; Genesis 30:1 ; and to refuse to raise up seed to a brother, was to be spit upon, Genesis 38:26 ; Deuteronomy 25:9 ; and the prospect of the promise, like the fulfilment of it, did not send Peace into families, but a sword; and three were set against two, and two against three, Genesis 27:41 ; and the elder, who would be promoted unto honour, was set against the younger, whom God would promote, Genesis 4:5 ; Genesis 27:41 ; and national differences were engendered by it, as individuals grew into nations, Genesis 19:37 ; Genesis 26:35 ; and even the foulest of idolatries may be traced, perhaps, to this hallowed source; for the corruption of the best is the worst corruption of all, 1618650209_82
Veil - Pitts informs us that in Barbary the courtezan appears in public without her veil; and, in Proverbs 7:13-14 , the harlot exposes herself in the same indecent manner: "So she caught him, and kissed him, and with an impudent face," a face uncovered and shameless, "said unto him, I have Peace-offerings with me, this day have I paid my vows
War - ...
As the influence of Christianity diffuses itself in the world, war is becoming less excusable and less practicable; and a great advance may be observed from the customs and spirit of ancient barbarism towards the promised universal supremacy of the Prince of Peace, Psalm 46:9 Isaiah 2:4 Micah 4:3

Joshua the Son of Nun - ...
Joshua then attacked to the south, but the people of Gibeon saved themselves by tricking the Israelites into making a Peace treaty with them
Paradox - In the teaching of Jesus we have unworldly simplicity united with worldly shrewdness (Matthew 7:15; Matthew 10:16-17; Matthew 16:6; Matthew 18:2-3, Luke 16:1-12), the universal beneficence and compassion of God bound up with severe and inexorable justice (Matthew 5:45; Matthew 11:20-30; Matthew 18:15-35; Matthew 20:1-16; Matthew 25:14-30); we have the great and deep conceptions of life through death, joy through suffering, love through severance, Peace through conflict, victory through surrender, self-realization through self-renunciation, the conquest of the world through the cross of shame (Luke 14:25-33, John 12:24-26; John 16:20; John 16:33; John 12:32)
Arius, Followers of - Constantius summoned Athanasius to his presence, and after a friendly interview dismissed him, and wrote three letters, one to the bishops and clergy in Egypt, one to the laity, and one to the governors of provinces, explaining that it was his will that Athanasius should be allowed to return in Peace to his flock. ...
Peace was thus restored for the moment, but it endured only so long as Constantius was occupied with foreign war and intestine strife. But permanent Peace was impossible until the questions at issue had been fully threshed out. Before the death of Jovian (364), Acacias of Caesarea, who cannot be acquitted of being an unworthy intriguer or at best a time-server, came forward to make his Peace by accepting the Nicene formula. The cause of genuine, practical Christianity suffered seriously under these divisions, intrigues, and acts of violence, and men of earnest and even indifferent minds were longing for Peace
John, the Gospel by - He left them Peace, and gave them His own Peace. The Lord spoke these things to them that in Him they might have Peace, whereas in the world they should have tribulation.

He then gave them their commission: "As the Father sent me forth, I also send you," again pronouncing Peace
Thessalonians Epistles to the - There they accused him of harbouring men whose presence was a menace to the public Peace, adherents of a rival Emperor, one Jesus. They bound over Jason and ‘the rest’ to keep the Peace of the city and let them go, probably holding them responsible for the continued absence of Paul and Silas from Thessalonica (Ramsay, St. May God’s own Peace rest on them all (2 Thessalonians 3:16). From Him alone come grace and Peace (1 Thessalonians 3:12, 1 Thessalonians 5:23, 2 Thessalonians 2:16; 2 Thessalonians 3:16)
Temple - the head of the Temple police (στρατηγὸς τοῦ ἱεροῦ) and the Sadducees (Acts 4:1); and, if their freedom of speech was somewhat curtailed, this was not because of their attitude to the Temple and its services, which was evidently quite correct, but simply because they were said to be exciting the multitude and disturbing the Peace. Paul as a profaner of the Temple, and the Romans arrested him as a disturber of the Peace
Hospitality - God graciously received the alienated Israelites and met their needs, redeeming them from Egypt and feeding and clothing them in the wilderness (Exodus 16 ; Deuteronomy 8:2-5 ), bringing them as sojourners into God's own land (Leviticus 25:23 ), where God offered them health, long life, Peace, and fertility (Deuteronomy 11 ). In a figurative sense, table fellowship is offered during meals of Peace offerings and religious feasts where part of the sacrifice is offered to God and the rest is eaten by the sacrificer or community (Leviticus 7:11-18 ; 23Psalm 23:5; Proverbs 9:1-6 ; Isaiah 25:6 )
Mediator, Mediation - They also use mediators to argue a case or to negotiate terms of Peace with a hostile party, as Moses did with Pharaoh on behalf of Israel (Exodus 6:28-12:32 ) and Joab did with David on behalf of Absalom (2 Samuel 14:1-24 ). ...
Paul echoes the new covenant language of the Old Testament when he tells us that believers have Peace with God (Romans 5:1 ), have experienced the outpouring of God's love in their hearts through the Holy Spirit (Romans 5:5 ), and have been reconciled to God (Romans 5:10-11 ; cf

Sacrifice - Peace-offerings: these were offered in the fulfillment of vows, to return thanks to God for benefits, (thank-offerings,) or to satisfy private devotion, (freewill-offerings.

Neighbour (2) - It is those whose whole lives make for Peace—the Peace that springs not from indifference but from love—who shall be called the children of God (Matthew 5:9)
Theodoretus, Bishop of Cyrrhus - He was, however, precluded from accepting the terms of Peace which John and others were increasingly inclined to acquiesce in, by the demand that he should anathematize the doctrine of Nestorius and Nestorius himself. ), the Orientals were divided into two great parties: the Peace-seeking majority, with John of Antioch and the venerable Acacius at their head, ready to meet Cyril half-way; the violent party of irreconcilables, with Alexander of Hierapolis as their leader, opposed to all reconciliation as treason to the truth; while a third or middle party was led by Theodoret and Andrew of Samosata, anxious for Peace, but on terms of their own. Though still holding back from reconciliation with Cyril, he was virtually the means of bringing about the long-desired Peace. John, now hopeless of Peace otherwise, applied to the secular power. " These accusations were accepted at court, and Dioscorus obtained an imperial edict (dated by Tillemont Mar 30, 449) that as a disturber of the Peace of the church Theodoret should keep to his own diocese
Enoch - Took William Law to my heart and read in him for the thousandth time his two golden chapters showing, How all orders and all ranks of men and women of all ages are obliged to devote themselves to God; as, also, How great devotion to God fills our lives with the greatest Peace and happiness that can be enjoyed in this world. To hold your Peace when you are reproved is a direct and sure step toward God. And though his family, and his friends, and his enemies did not know so much as the very name of the fruit of the Spirit, they all ate and drank that fruit in Enoch's walk and conversation; for the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, Peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance, and such like
Painting, Religious - The cloister offered an ideal atmosphere of Peace and leisure for fostering artistic talent, and the illumination of Bible or missal led naturally, in the case of the gifted, to the decoration of church or monastery walls
Hittites - Rameses fought a great battle with them there, and afterwards made a treaty of Peace with them (Breasted, op

Heart - when a person is judicially hardened, he makes use of indirect and unwarrantable methods to maintain that false Peace which he thinks himself happy in the enjoyment of; but a believer, when complaining of the hardness of his heart, cannot be satisfied with any thing short of Christ, Psalms 101:2

Gildas, Monk of Bangor - ; a sorrowful spectator of the miseries and almost utter ruin of his countrymen by a people under whose banner they had hoped for Peace
Helladius, Bishop of Tarsus - When the rival leaders sought Peace, Helladius kept aloof, and on the receipt of the six articles drawn up by John at a council at Antioch, which ultimately opened the way for reconcilation, he and Alexander of Hierapolis rejected the terms and all communion with Cyril
Blessedness (2) - The main qualities designated and praised are meekness, purity, tenderness of heart, Peaceableness, faith, patience, contrition, qualities which have no sooner been named than we are reminded of such lists of the fruits of the Spirit as we find in Galatians 5:22-23 or Ephesians 4:30-32. As Titius puts it, ‘Over every saying of Jesus may be written the inscription, “Concerning the kingdom of God” ’ These sayings, then, reveal the nature of the kingdom in its twofold aspect as an inward, spiritual, present reality which exists, progresses, suffers, is in perpetual conflict; and, as a great future fulfilment, when conflict shall turn to Peace, failure to victory, suffering to reward, and the inward desire and the outward attainment be one in the presence of perfected power

Theodotus, Martyr at Ancyra - They speak of the chapel erected to the memory of Theodotus, which could only have been done when Peace was restored to the church
Eschatology - They argue that many prophecies regarding Israel—such as the rebuilding of the Jerusalem Temple, the rule of a Davidic king over a universal, earthly realm of Peace—have not yet been fulfilled. In general sense, amillennialism can refer to everyone who interprets all language about a final, earthly realm of Peace in a spiritual manner. More specifically, they expected God, first, to judge and defeat His enemies; second, to rescue His people and raise the righteous dead; and third, to inaugurate the “new Age” of life and Peace through the Spirit. ...
Third, the early Christian community discovered that the “new Age” of life and Peace had “already” begun among them through the outpouring of God's Spirit
Wisdom of Solomon - ‘Moreover this was not enough for them that they erred in the knowledge of God; but whereas they live in a great war of ignorance, they call such great evils Peace’ (τὰ τοσαῦτα κακὰ εἰρήνην προσαγορεύουσιν). It is certain that the Greek word εἰρήνη is not a name for any idolatrous system; but the Hebrew phrase ‘to call Peace to’ (-, Judges 21:13; cf. Deuteronomy 20:10) means not to designate by the name ‘peace,’ but to invite to Peace, or offer friendship to; and this is what the phrase appears to signify in the passage cited, since the justification of the proposition in what follows is that the idolaters keep on perpetrating various atrocities
Vespasian - As a sign of universal Peace the temple of Janus was closed, and the building of a Temple of Peace begun. In 75 the Temple of Peace, begun in 71, was completed and opened. In the same year Vologaesus adopted a hostile attitude to Rome, but was compelled to ask for Peace
Absolution - ‘Jesus therefore said to them again, Peace be unto you: as the Father hath sent me, even so send I you. ’ It is admitted that ‘perfect sorrow for sin without addition of external rite blots out the stains, and restores the Peace of God in the soul’; yet this perfect sorrow involves in a well-instructed Catholic the intention of confessing and receiving the priest’s absolution when opportunity offers. Protestants truly penitent may indeed receive the Peace of God, because this desire of confession may be regarded as implicit in them. Confession was not made compulsory: it was a free opportunity that might be used in ease of sins about which the penitent could not otherwise attain to Peace

Intercession - ): ‘Grant unto them therefore, O Lord, health, Peace, concord, stability, that they may administer the government which Thou hast given them without failure. … Do Thou, Lord, direct their counsel according to that which is good and well-pleasing in Thy sight, that, administering in Peace and gentleness with godliness the power which Thou hast given them, they may obtain Thy favour

Clovis, King of Salian Franks - Theodoric the Ostrogoth had proposed an alliance of the Arian German kings for the maintenance of Peace; and when the Franks began to pursue their victories in a fresh campaign and laid siege to Arles, Theodoric interfered, sent an army under Ibbas, which defeated the Franks and relieved Arles, and eventually agreed to a Peace, by which Provence was annexed by the Ostrogothic power, Septimania adhered to the Visigothic kingdom of Spain, and Clovis's conquest of Aquitaine was acknowledged (Binding, p
Herod - Herod, by great pecuniary sacrifices, made his Peace with Antony, and returned in high credit. In the war between Antony and Octavius, Herod raised an army for the purpose of joining the former; but he was obliged first to engage Malchus, king of Arabia, whom he defeated and obliged to sue for Peace
Shepherds - The patriarchal shepherds, rich in flocks and herds, in silver and gold, and attended by a numerous train of servants purchased with their money, or hired from the neighbouring towns and villages, acknowledge no civil superior; they held the rank, and exercised the rights, of sovereign princes; they concluded alliances with the kings in whose territories they tended their flocks; they made Peace or war with the surrounding states; and, in fine, they wanted nothing of sovereign authority but the name. The same allusion occurs in these words of Paul: "Now the God of Peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus Christ, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make you perfect in every good work to do his will," Hebrews 13:20
Optatus, Bishop of Milevis - opens with a eulogy of Peace, which he complains that the Donatists set at nought by reviling the Catholics. Constantine took pains to restore Peace and suppress idolatry but another emperor who declared himself an apostate when he restored idolatry allowed the Donatists to return a permission for the acceptance of which they ought to blush
Intercession - ): ‘Grant unto them therefore, O Lord, health, Peace, concord, stability, that they may administer the government which Thou hast given them without failure. … Do Thou, Lord, direct their counsel according to that which is good and well-pleasing in Thy sight, that, administering in Peace and gentleness with godliness the power which Thou hast given them, they may obtain Thy favour
Messiah - ...
Primarily national as these expectations are, the keynote is the deliverance wrought by Jehovah through a particular royal person, in whose days righteousness and Peace are to he supreme in the world because of the Hebrew empire. ...
In this literature, whatever its date may be, there appears also the new note of universal Peace to be wrought by Jehovah. In large measure this Peace was conceived of as due to the completeness of Jehovah’s conquest of the nations in the interests of His people (cf. The Peace then promised was to come from a knowledge of Jehovah as well as from the glories of the Davidic ruler. The righteous are to live 500 years, beget 1000 children, and die in Peace (ch

Thomas - On the next Lord's day, Thomas, laying aside his morbid isolation, attended the weekly assembly of disciples; though the doors were shut Jesus came and stood in the midst with His wonted salutation, cf6 "Peace be unto you"; then saith He to Thomas, with grave yet tender reproof (showing that He knew all that had passed in Thomas's mind and all he had said to his fellow disciples), cf6 "reach here thy finger, and behold My hands, and reach here thy hand, and thrust it into My side; and be ("become", ginou ) not faithless but believing"
Melchizedek - He explains Melchizedek’s name to mean ‘king of righteousness,’ and his title of ‘king of Salem’ to mean ‘king of Peace’; and then, arguing from the silence of the record respecting his parentage, birth, and death, describes him as ‘without father, without mother, without genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but made like unto the Son of God,’ and affirms him to have been greater than Abraham, since he blessed him (‘for without any dispute the less is blessed of the better’) and received from him (and through him from his unborn descendants the Levitical priests) a tithe of his spoils ( Hebrews 7:1-16 )
Egypt - Like the people lost in the wilderness, some of the survivors of the destruction of Judah would rather live in relative Peace in Egypt than be available for God in Palestine. Like Moses, Jesus comes out from Egypt, escaping the temptation of luxury, ease, and a Peaceful life

James, Epistle of - Heavenly wisdom leads to Peace; but it is first pure; that is, God has His place in the soul; then Peaceable, self has no place; while the outcome as regards others is that it is full of mercy and good fruits
Ashtoreth - ...

Under the law, sacrifices of various kinds were appointed for the children of Israel; the paschal lamb, Exodus 12:3 ; the holocaust, or whole burnt- offering, Leviticus 7:8 ; the sin-offering, or sacrifice of expiation, Leviticus 4:3-4 ; and the Peace-offering, or sacrifice of thanksgiving, Leviticus 7:11-12 ; all of which emblematically set forth the sacrifice of Christ, being the instituted types and shadows of it, Hebrews 9:9-15 ; Hebrews 10:1

Rome - Heresies, too, appeared here, even at this early period; Arianism alone, however, disturbed the religious Peace of the era
Isaiah - Sometimes the prophet beholds the Author of this deliverance in his humiliation and sorrows; and again, the remotest ages of the Messiah's kingdom present themselves to his enraptured vision-when man, so long estranged from God, will have again returned to him; when every thing opposed to God shall have been destroyed, and internal and external Peace universally prevail; and when all the evil introduced by sin into the world, will be for ever done away

Pelagius ii., Bishop of Rome - 585) resulted in a treaty of Peace between the Franks and Lombards (Greg
Lot - Had Lot just held on as he began; had he kept close to Abraham, and had he been content to share Abraham's prospects and prosperity and Peace, Lot would have lived a pure and a happy life; he would have escaped many sorrows, and, instead of being scarcely saved; saved indeed, but saved with the fire and brimstone of Sodom and Gomorrah smouldering in his skirts; he would have gone down to a truly patriarchal grave, an elder of a good report and a father of a blameless name. But blessed are the Peacemakers. Hear, then, what the first Peacemaker in the Bible said, and go and say and do likewise, 'And Abraham took Lot and said to him, Let there be no strife, I pray thee, between me and thee, and between my herdmen and thy herdmen; for we be brethren. Abraham chose household Peace; while Lot chose good pasture ground at the cost of disgrace, and shamelessness, and all unhandsomeness and ingratitude, and got Sodom to the boot of the bargain. You put God in your debt as often as you do any handsome and unselfish thing; and, especially, anything in the pure interests of righteousness and Peace

Conscience - Man is a born judge of himself, and the verdict that results from self-examination brings Peace or uneasiness. Converts are haunted by renounced beliefs, and their Peace is disturbed; beside the main current of emotion there is a stream which comes from past associations and habits
Salt - (Matthew 5:13) And elsewhere the Lord said, "have salt in yourselves, and have Peace one with another. Salt is good, but if the salt have lost his saltness," (if Jesus be not the savour of life unto life) "wherewith will ye season it?" (who can then give acceptance to the sinner?) Christ"becomes the savour of death unto death"—graciously therefore he adds, "have salt in yourselves, and have Peace one with another
Benediction - They may be exemplified from the benediction of the Jewish liturgy: ‘The Lord bless thee, and keep thee; the Lord make his face to shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee; the Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee Peace’ (Numbers 6:24-27). The actual words of such a benediction are given in Luke 10:5 ‘May Peace rest on this house’ (cf
