The Fear of the Lord

Would it surprise you to know that we are called to fear the Lord?  This is one of the most persistent themes of the Bible.



"Do not curse the deaf or put a stumbling block in front of the blind, but fear your God.  I am the Lord" (Leviticus 19:14).

"Fear the Lord your God, serve Him only and take your oaths in His name" (Deuteronomy 6:13).

"Now let the fear of the Lord be upon you.  Judge carefully, for with the Lord our God there is no injustice or partiality or bribery" (2 Chronicles 19:7).

"Let all the earth fear the Lord; let all the people of the world revere Him" (Psalm 33:8).

"Blessed are all who fear the Lord, who walk in His ways" (Psalm 128:1)

"The Lord delights in those who fear Him, who put their hope in His unfailing love" (Psalm 147:11).

"The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom" (Proverbs 9:10).

"The Lord Almighty is the one you are to regard as holy, He is the one you are to fear, He is the one you are to dread" (Isaiah 8:13).

"'Should you not fear Me?"' declares the Lord.  "Should you not tremble in My presence?" (Jeremiah 5:22).

"His mercy extends to those who fear Him, from generation to generation" (Luke 1:50).

Jesus said, "I tell you, My friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that can do no more.  But I will show you whom you should fear:  Fear Him who, after the killing of the body, has power to throw you into hell.  Yes, I tell you, fear Him" (Luke 12:4-5).

"Continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act according His good purpose" (Philippians 2:12-13).

I could go on, but you get the picture.

No wonder, then, that Martin Luther explains the First Commandment this way:  "We should fear, love, and trust in God above all things."
