Fearing Jehovah – Psalm 25:12

“What man is he that feareth the Lord?  him shall He teach in the way that He shall choose.” ~Psalm 25:12

What does it mean to fear the Lord?  I recently heard it explained this way in a sermon:  to fear Jehovah means

  1. To know Him and what He has done.
  2. To love Him for all that He is and all that He has done.
  3. To seek to please Him in everything you do.

What man is he that feareth the Lord, with all his heart, as he ought?

Joshua 1:9

“Have not I commanded thee?  Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed:  for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.” ~Joshua 1:9

Philippians 4:8

“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” ~Philippians 4:8

Psalm 37:5, 31

“Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in Him; and He shall bring it to pass.  The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.”

Psalm 37:5, 31
