“The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death.”
Proverbs 14:27 KJV
The fear of the LORD prolongeth days: but the years of the wicked shall be shortened. They that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before Him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name. And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.
The preacher sought to find out acceptable words: and that which was written was upright, even words of truth.

O Lord , the hope of Israel, all that forsake thee shall be ashamed, and they that depart from me shall be written in the earth, because they have forsaken the Lord , the fountain of living waters.
Jeremiah 17:13 KJV
(O Lord) Be not a terror unto me: thou art my hope in the day of evil.
Jeremiah 17:17 KJV
What man is he that feareth the Lord ? him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose.

The secret of the Lord is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.

For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.
