    Hebrew word meaning;

    A deep and constant tranquility and stability which can only come from God. In its broadest sense Shalom means completeness, well-being, health, and salvation (Perfect Peace).

    Scripture reference;(King James Version) Isaiah; 12:;17-18 'And the work of righteousness shall be peace: and the effect of righteousness, quietness and assurance forever. 'And my people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting places'.

    Isaiah; 26; 2,12 'Thou will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Thee: because he trusted in Thee.
    Lord, thou wilt ordain peace for us; for Thou also hast wrought all our works in us'.

    If we have someone who is Jewish here, they will be able to elaborate on my humble definiation of this wonderful Hebrew word that has so much meaning.

    Shalom, Shirl
