21. Individual peace
"Therefore, since we are justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ" (Rom 5:1 NRS). This expression also appears in 2 Cor 13:11 and Rom 15:13. The Hebrew Bible already featured the idea that the just "who love your law" live in peace with God. This expression is assumed to describe the modern term "peace of mind": "Great peace have those who love your law; nothing can make them stumble" (Psa 119:165 NRS).
