pēs´māk - ẽr : Occurs only in the plural ( Matthew 5:9 , "Blessed are the peacemakers (eirēnopoioı́ ): for they shall be called sons of God" (who is "the God of peace")). We have also what seems to be a reflection of this saying in James 3:18 , "The fruit of righteousness is sown in peace for (the Revised Version margin "by") them that make peace" (toı́s poioúsin eirḗnēn ). In classical Greek a "peacemaker" was an ambassador sent to treat of peace. The word in Matthew 5:9 would, perhaps, be better rendered "peace-workers," implying not merely making peace between those who are at variance, but working peace as that which is the will of the God of peace for men.
