The phrase does not necessarily imply that there had been variance or strife, and that then God had made peace, but that he preserved or kept them in peace.

Whether all the Angels who are Sent, Assist?
"Wise in heart and mighty in strength, Who has defied Him without harm?
"Even now, behold, my witness is in heaven, And my advocate is on high.
Then Bildad the Shuhite answered,
"And what is the portion of God from above Or the heritage of the Almighty from on high?
"Behold, God is mighty but does not despise any; He is mighty in strength of understanding.
"Behold, God is exalted in His power; Who is a teacher like Him?
"The Almighty-- we cannot find Him; He is exalted in power And He will not do violence to justice and abundant righteousness.
