They do not know peace (Rom 3:17)

“They have not known

The way of peace.”

καὶ ὁδὸν εἰρήνης οὐκ ἔγνωσαν.

Again, this is a reference to Isaiah, chapter 59:7-8.  Paul said that they have not known (οὐκ ἔγνωσαν) the way of peace (καὶ ὁδὸν εἰρήνης).  These evil ones did not know the way of peace, because there was no justice in their paths.  They had made their roads crooked.  They knew nothing about peace and justice.  They walked on crooked paths where no one else wanted to walk there.  Paul had completed his diatribe against the sinfulness of humans, since no one was righteous.  Do you anyone who is peaceful?
