The fear of God

   of thee, but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all his ways, 
   and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy 
   heart and with all thy soul, {13} To keep the commandments of 
   the Lord, and his statutes, which I command thee this day for 
   thy good? 

   Deu 10:20   Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God; him shalt thou 
   serve, and to him shalt thou cleave, and swear by his name. 
   {21} He is thy praise, and he is thy God, that hath done for 
   thee these great and terrible things, which thine eyes have 

   Deu 13:4   Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, 
   and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall 
   serve him, and cleave unto him. 

   Deu 8:5-6   Thou shalt also consider in thine heart, that, as a

   God, to walk in his ways, and to fear him.

   them his covenant.

   in his mercy;

   ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the

   plenteous in mercy. {9} He will not always chide: neither will 
   he keep his anger for ever. {10} He hath not dealt with us after 
   our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities. {11} For 
   as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy 
   toward them that fear him. {12} As far as the east is from the 
   west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us. {13} Like 
   as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that 
   fear him. {14} For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we 
   are dust. {15} As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of 
   the field, so he flourisheth. {16} For the wind passeth over it, 
   and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more. 
   {17} But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting 
   upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children’s 
   children; {18} To such as keep his covenant, and to those that 
   remember his commandments to do them.
