Fear in this context being: In awe of awesomeness, great respect, comprehension of God’s sovereign holiness, perfect righteousness and His final ultimate judgement.
This is so critical to a proper understanding of God’s character.
David, Solomon and so many of Scripture’s contributors drive this point home time after time.
Just do a word search on ‘fear’ and you will see what I mean.
So many times, people us this word improperly like its always a bad thing. Just fear is smart and meek. False fear is nieve and week.
