On Peaceableness

   Matthew 5:38-47    "You have heard that it was said, 'An eye 
   for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.' {39} "But I tell you not 
   to resist an evil person. But whoever slaps you on your right 
   cheek, turn the other to him also. {40} "If anyone wants to sue 
   you and take away your tunic, let him have your cloak also. 
   {41} "And whoever compels you to go one mile, go with him two. 
   {42} "Give to him who asks you, and from him who wants to 
   borrow from you do not turn away. {43} "You have heard that it 
   was said, 'You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' 
   {44} "But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who 
   curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those 
   who spitefully use you and persecute you, {45} "that you may be 
   sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the 
   evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the 
   unjust. {46} "For if you love those who love you, what reward 
   have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? {47} "And 
   if you greet your brethren only, what do you do more than 
   others? Do not even the tax collectors do so? 

   Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man 
   shall see the Lord.     Heb. 12:14 

   Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, 
   and things wherewith one may edify another.   Rom. 14:19 

   But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then 
   peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and 
   good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.  The 
   fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make 
   peace.    Jas. 3:17,18                     

   Follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that 
   call on the Lord out of a pure heart.     II Tim. 2:22  

   Be at peace among yourselves.     I Thess. 5:13  

   For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain 
   his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile.  
   Let him eschew evil, and do good.  Let him seek peace, and 
   pursue it.     I Pet. 3:10  

   Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace.   
       II Cor 14:33  

   If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with 
   all men.      Rom. 12:18  

   For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all 
   churches of the saints.      I Cor. 14:33  

   Endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of 
   peace.     Eph. 4:3  

   That we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness 
   and honesty.     I Tim. 2:22  

   Love the truth and peace.     Zech. 8:19

   children of God.     Matt. 5:9

   with travail and vexation of spirit.     Eccl. 4:6

   together in unity!      Psa. 133:1
