Expanding on Peace

Books with quick concordances in the back pages are convenient. The other evening, I wanted to look up a few verses in the Bible about the topic, Peace.

Although not a complete concordance, I indeed captured a profound insight to peace when referring to10 different verses and expanding my reading beyond the verse indexed.

Here is a list of three verses that impressed on me the fact that peace is felt when goodwill toward others is felt.

Numbers 6:26   The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace.

dancerNumbers 6:22-26   And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying: Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying, “This is the way you shall bless the children of Israel. Say to them: The LORD bless you and keep you: The LORD make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you: The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace.

Ps. 122:6  For the sake of my brethren and companions, I will now say, “Peace be within you.”

Ps. 122:6-8 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: May they prosper who love you. Peace be within you walls, Prosperity within your palaces.’ For the sake of my brethren and companions, I will now say, Peace be within you.

Luke 2:14 Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!

Luke 2:13-14 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying: Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!

It has required a shift in thought to pro-actively praise God by bestowing goodwill on everyone.
