Selected Quotation:

Fear of God – Noah Webster 1828 Dictionary will help!

Fear:  Noun:  “In Scripture, fear is used to express a filial or a slavish passion.  In good men, the fear of God is a holy awe or reverence of God and his laws, which springs from a just view and real love of the divine character, leading the subjects of it to hate and shun every thing that can offend such a holy being, and inclining them to aim at perfect obedience. This is filial fear.

Slavish fear is the effect or consequence of guilt; it is the painful apprehension of merited punishment.”

Fear: Verb: “1. To feel a painful apprehension of some impending evil; to be afraid of … we have reason to fear the punishment of sin.   2. To reverence; to have an reverential awe, to venerate”
