Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: “May they prosper who love you.”  (Psalm 122:6)

The Jewish word for “peace” is shalom, which means welfare, good fortune, peace, and prosperity.
Israelis regularly greet one another with the word shalom—Peace.
Now look carefully at the word Jerusalem
In the days of Melchizedek, this city was called Salem, or Shalom.
It was the City of Peace. Later the prefix Jeru- (probably “foundation of” or “city of”) was added to the name.
As early as Joshua 10:1, we read about the city of Jerusalem---the City of Peace.
Modern research keeps affirming the truths of the Bible.
The Bible advocates a humble heart, saying, “Better to be of a humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud.
The humble in spirit will retain honor”.
(Proverbs 16:19 and 29:23)
The apostle Paul wrote, “Do not set your mind on high things, but associate with the humble”.
(Romans 12:16)
