What Is The Fear Of God?

  1. The Fear Of The Lord
    What Is The Fear Of God?​

    "There is the convergence of awe, reverence, adoration, honor, worship, confidence, thankfulness, love, and, yes, fear." ... Some translations of the Bible sometimes replace the word "fear" with "reverence." It can also mean fear of God's judgment. —Dr. Robert B. Strimple

    Fear (Yir'ah) Hebrew (OT)

    • Fear, terror
    • Awesome or terrifying thing (object causing fear)
    • Fear (of God), respect, reverence, piety
    Fear (Phobos) Greek
    • Fear, dread, terror
    • That which strikes terror
    Fear Of The Lord (Reverence Or Awe)...
    • Which is fine as far as it goes...
    • Does this definition go far enough...
    • Since the terms reverence and awe imply a place for "trembling," do most make the connection?
