The Language of Peace in The New Testament

Three scriptures exemplify peace in the New Testament;
Matthew 5:9 talks about " Happy are people who make peace, because they will be called God’s children."
John 14:27 explains: " Peace I leave with you. My peace I give you. I give to you not as the world gives. Don’t be troubled or afraid."
2 Thessalonians 3:16 asks for a blessing of peace: " May the Lord of peace himself give you peace always in every way. The Lord be with all of you."
The word peace sounds different in other languages and even means different things to different people and maybe if we understood each other better we will find a path to peace in this world.
Here are these three scriptures in a few other languages.
9 Zalig zijn de vreedzamen; want zij zullen Gods kinderen genaamd worden. 
27 Vrede laat Ik u, Mijn vrede geef Ik u; niet gelijkerwijs de wereld hem geeft, geef Ik hem u. Uw hart worde niet ontroerd en zij niet versaagd. 
16 De Heere nu des vredes Zelf geve u vrede te allen tijd, in allerlei wijze. De Heere zij met u allen.
