June Theme 2016

June theme: Shalom.

 Strong’s Definitions: שָׁלוֹם shâlôwm, shaw-lome’; or שָׁלֹם shâlôm; from H7999; safe, i.e. (figuratively) well, happy, friendly; also (abstractly) welfare, i.e. health, prosperity, peace:—× do, familiar, × fare, favour, friend, × great, (good) health, (× perfect, such as be at) peace(-able, -ably), prosper(-ity, -ous), rest, safe(-ty), salute, welfare, (× all is, be) well, × wholly.

In Hebrew, the root of the word, depending on the vowels that are used, has several meanings (that are relevant to the general meaning of the word Shalom); as for example: One meaning is “Whole”, another could be the actual verb “Pay” usually in command form. The conjugated verb has other spins that are worth noting, such as: “Hishtalem” meaning “it was worth it” or “Shulam” as “it was paid for” or “Meshulam” as in “paid in advance.”

Hence one can jokingly say that, “when it’s paid-for then there is peace.” Wikipedia

He paid ahead for my peace.
