You who fear the Lord, praise Him! …honor Him! Revere Him…! (Psalms, 22:23)

 

For I delight in Your commands because I love them. I lift up my hands to Your commands, which I love, and I meditate on your decrees. (Psalms, 119:47-48)

 

Have awe of the Lord… my son, and do not join with the rebellious. (Proverbs, 24:21)

 

… I know that it will go better with God-fearing men, who are reverent before God. (Ecclesiastes, 8:12)
