Shalom - God be with you Shalom (שָׁלוֹם) is a Hebrew word meaning "God be with you" and can be used idiomatically to mean both hello and goodbye.

When she touched the hem of Jesus' garment, she was healed. Jesus said, "Who touched Me?" He felt the power go out of Him. The power for what? The power for healing. He felt that power go out. His disciples said, "What do you mean who touched You? We've got thousands of people pressing in on You? They are pressing all around us and You ask, Who touched Me?" But Jesus knew that somebody had touched Him that had faith.

If you need to touch God, you can press in at a church, but you may not be pressing in with faith. There were many people pressing into the presence of Jesus, but only one woman pressed in with faith. Jesus turned and looked at her. She pulled back and Jesus said, "Woman, your faith has made you well." Then He made a statement often overlooked. He said, "Shalom."

Shalom is completeness, wholeness, peace, health, welfare, safety, soundness, tranquility, prosperity, fullness, perfectness, harmony, the absence of agitation and the absence of discord.
