Nonviolent Peacemaking in the Old Testament [No. 16]
Posted: February 10, 2015

INTRODUCTION: Today’s emphasis is upon “personal peace,” often in relationships with others.  Such inner, spiritual peace comes from God and is rooted in a relationship with God.  When appropriate, some such passages shared with you before are repeated by Dr. John Yeatts. As you read, ask yourself—- “Am I finding or experiencing this kind of peace within my daily life.  God’s Word states that it is possible, you know!   
    [Scriptures and Commentary from New Living Translation]

A Priestly Blessing – Then the Lord said to Moses, “Tell Aaron and his sons to bless the people of Israel with this special blessing: (Numbers 6:22-26)
                    May the Lord bless you and protect you.
                          May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you.
                            May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace.
Commentary:  This is a prayer on behalf of the people as the priests sought God’s blessings for Israel.  These heartfelt appeals are still good models for prayer and for the blessings that God’s people can seek for all humanity.  Divine peace is not just the absence of conflict or violence; God’s peace brings complete well-being, health, and wholeness.

The Lord rules over the floodwaters.  The Lord reigns as king forever.  The Lord gives his people strength.  The Lord blesses them with peace.  (Psalm 29:10 and 11)
OR The Lord reigns as king over the whole created order; no one contests his kingdom.
          The ruler of nature blesses his people with peace.  (Psalm 29:10 and 11)

May those who rejoice at my troubles be humiliated and disgraced.  May those who triumph over me be covered with shame and dishonor.  But give great joy to those who came to my defense.  Let them continually say, “Great is the Lord, who delights in blessing his servant with peace!”  Then I will proclaim your justice, and I will praise you all day long. (Psalm 35:26-28)
Commentary:  The Psalmist calls on the Lord to judge the wicked and to rescue the Godly and bring them joy.

I listen carefully to what God the Lord is saying, for he speaks peace to his faithful people.  But let them not return to their foolish ways.  Surely his salvation is near to those who fear him, so our land will be filled with his glory.  Unfailing love and truth have met together.  Righteousness and peace have kissed!  Truth springs up from the earth, and righteousness smiles down from heaven. (Psalm 85:8-11)
Commentary:  When God the Lord speaks, his faithful people listen.  He promises them peace, meaning wholeness and well-being.  They fear the Lord and know that he and his salvation are near to them.  In the glorious world of renewal and salvation, all the qualities of God’s care—- love, truth, righteousness, and peace—- come together and transform the created order into something new.

Those who trust in the Lord are as secure as Mount Zion, they will not be defeated but will endure forever.  Just as the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds his people, both now and forever.  The wicked will not rule the land of the Godly, for then the Godly might be tempted to do wrong.  O Lord, do good to those who are good, whose hearts are in tune with you.  But banish those who turn to crooked ways, O Lord.  Take them away with those who do evil.  May Israel have peace.  (Psalm 125:1-5)
Commentary:  The Psalmist expresses the community’s confidence in the Lord’s protection (like mountains surrounding Jerusalem) and prays for peace for those who might be tempted to do wrong.
[These are examples of nonviolent peacemaking activity & emphasis in the O. T.]
