There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.
for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.
For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!”
No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us.
that we, being delivered from the hand of our enemies, might serve him without fear, in holiness and righteousness before him all our days.
Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe,
My flesh trembles for fear of you, and I am afraid of your judgments.
How they are destroyed in a moment, swept away utterly by terrors!
Dreadful sounds are in his ears; in prosperity the destroyer will come upon him.
You believe that God is one; you do well. Even the demons believe—and shudder!
Afflicted and close to death from my youth up, I suffer your terrors; I am helpless. Your wrath has swept over me; your dreadful assaults destroy me.
