Fear of the Lord Verses

fear of the lord

The scripture has more than 300 verses on "Fear". The original translation refers to different meanings for the word  "Fear". But the Fear of the Lord refers to Respect and Reverence. Sometimes it is the fear of disobeying him. The Bible tells us that the Fear of the Lord is a good thing and numerous blessings are associated with it. However, for receiving those blessings, first, we should desire to know them.
