All who obey his commandments will grow in wisdom
(Psalm 111:10; NLT).
He shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into ploughshares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more (Isaiah 2:4; KJV).
Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it
(Psalm 34:14; NLT).
When will we grow wise enough
To beat our swords into ploughshares,
And our spears into pruning hooks?
When will we give up
Our guns and bombs,
Our tanks, and fighter jets,
When will we learn
To make peace with one another,
Bringing our futile conflicts
To an end, at last?
