The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. –Proverbs 1:7
For they that hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD:
They would none of My counsel: they despised all My reproof.
Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices. –Proverbs 1:29-31
But whoso hearkeneth unto Me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of harm. –Proverbs 1:33
Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. –Hebrews 3:12
For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. –Hebrews 4:12
