Matthew 5:9 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

The peacemakers (οἱ εἰρηνοποιοί)

Should be held to its literal meaning, peace-makers; not as Wyc., peaceable men. The founders and promoters of peace are meant; who not only keep the peace, but seek to bring men into harmony with each other. Tynd. renders, the maintainers of peace.
