THE FEAR OF GOD# BY CYNTHIA ABEGAIL

THE FEAR OF GOD

The fear of God is glory and pride,
happiness and a crown of joyfulness.
The fear of the Lord gladdens the heart,
giving happiness, joy and long life.
For those who fear the Lord, all will end well:
on their dying day, they will be blessed.
The basis of wisdom is to fear the Lord,
she was created with the faithful in their
mother's womb;
she has made a home in the human race,
an age-old foundation.
The fullness of wisdom is to fear the Lord...
The root of wisdom is to fear the Lord,
and her branches are long life.
Ecclesiasticus 1: 11-25
Jerusalem Bible
*The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. It is not
an ordinary fear but refers to reverence and love for
God. The fear of the Lord is necessary to attain true
wisdom, for without faith it is impossible to please
God! Thus, one does not possess true wisdom.
