(Shalom) is a profoundly religious term,

used to describe material and spiritual well-being, cognate with heal, healthy, hale, whole. Sometimes God is spoken of as Shalom. In both the Old and the New Testament it is sometimes synonymous with “the messianic kingdom of God.” For the ancient prophets the word refers not only to the health or wholeness of the individual but also to the health of the society, to the people as a corporate body under covenant.
