What is it? The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. Proverbs 1:7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding. Proverbs 9:10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments : his praise endureth for ever. Psalm 111:10 The fear of the Lord is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate. Proverbs 8:13 The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death. Proverbs 14:27 The fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom; and before honour is humility. Proverbs 15:33 How to find it: My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee; [2] So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding; [3] Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding; [4] If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures; [5] Then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord , and find the knowledge of God. Proverbs 2:1-5 Why is it important? It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. Hebrews 10:31 With that said we must rejoice with trembling and serve Him. We will worship and praise Him in fear. Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Psalm 2:11 But as for me, I will come into thy house in the multitude of thy mercy: and in thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple.

Psalm 22:23 O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness: fear before him, all the earth. Psalm 96:9 God honours those who fear Him.

What man is he that feareth the Lord ? him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose. [13] His soul shall dwell at ease; and his seed shall inherit the earth. [14] The secret of the Lord is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant. Psalm 25:12-14 The Lord's goodness is only for those that fear Him. Oh how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee; which thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee before the sons of men! Psalm 31:19 The Lord watches over, protects and provides for those that fear Him. Behold, the eye of the Lord is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy; [19] To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine. Psalm 33:18-19 The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them. Psalm 34:7 He hath given meat unto them that fear him: he will ever be mindful of his covenant. Psalm 111:5 The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the Lord shall be safe. Proverbs 29:25 Those that fear the Lord have everything they need. O fear the Lord , ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him. Psalm 34:9 It should be easy to identify those that truly fear the Lord. Thou hast given a banner to them that fear thee, that it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah. Psalm 60:4 Only those that fear the Lord have salvation. Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him; that glory may dwell in our land. Psalm 85:9 The Lord's mercy is only available to His obedient children, those who truly fear Him. For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him. [12] As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us. [13] Like as a father pitieth his children, so the Lord pitieth them that fear him. [14] For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust. [15] As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth. [16] For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more. [17] But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children's children; [18] To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them. Psalm 103:11-18 The only true remedy for good health is a genuine fear of the Lord. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord , and depart from evil. [8] It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones. Proverbs 3:7-8 The fear of the Lord prolongeth days: but the years of the wicked shall be shortened. Proverbs 10:27 He that walketh in his uprightness feareth the Lord : but he that is perverse in his ways despiseth him.

Philippians 2:12 This was mentioned earlier on and it bears repeating here. We should never forget that...It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. Hebrews 10:31
