Names of God – YHWH Shalom

MONDAY

THE NAMES OF GOD

Word: YHWH Shalom

Meaning: the LORD is peace. ‘Shalom’ conveys the concept of being tensionless or lacking tension. The word pictures the absence of conflict or strife with God. In its only reference listed below, God confers peace upon Gideon and commands him to rest in the peace that He is giving. It is a picture of the peace given to people who place their confidence in the finished work of Christ on the cross.

NAU Judges 6:23 The LORD said to him, “Peace to you, do not fear; you shall not die.” 24 Then Gideon built an altar there to the LORD and named it The LORD is Peace. To this day it is still in Ophrah of the Abiezrites.

NIV Judges 6:23 But the LORD said to him, “Peace! Do not be afraid. You are not going to die.” 24 So Gideon built an altar to the LORD there and called it The LORD is Peace. To this day it stands in Ophrah of the Abiezrites.

KJV Judges 6:23 And the LORD said unto him, Peace be unto thee; fear not: thou shalt not die. 24 Then Gideon built an altar there unto the LORD, and called it Jehovahshalom: unto this day it is yet in Ophrah of the Abiezrites.
