  To which Peter responded:
Again this proves my point: the etymological or "original" meaning is 
not a good guide to current meaning.

 UH:    Not in the MT where you'll find  many examples  of the original meaning of ShLM   "completion"  both in verbs, e.g. 1 Kings 7:51 -- watishlam kol hamelakha , or nouns e.g. "shelamim" a type of sacrifice.
