Ways to Find Peace, Paix, Vrede, Paz, and Kiyeengi

The New Testament encourages us to live in peace with our neighbors and with everyone. The Bible has been translated into many languages. Here are four verses in a few of the world's 7000 plus languages.

Romans 12:18 (NIV) If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.

Galatians 5:22-23 (NIV) 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 



1 Thessalonians 5:13 (NIV) Hold them in the highest regard in love because of their work. Live in peace with each other.

Jude 1:2 (NIV) Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance.
