One alone is wise and greatly to be feared. Sirach 1:8

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. All wisdom comes from God and endures with him forever. It is the Lord himself who created wisdom before all things. He has put wisdom into the hearts of his faithful ones before their birth.

The fear of the Lord is the crown of wisdom. Where it is, peace and good health flourish; knowledge and prudence will rain down.

The fear of the Lord is the root of wisdom, its branches are a long life. It cannot be hidden by those who possess her.

Desire for wisdom by keeping the commandments and the Lord will give her to you unstintingly; for fear of the Lord is wisdom and learning; what pleases him is faithfulness and gentleness.

Do not put aside fear of the Lord; approach him with a sincere heart. Hold fast to the Lord, do not separate yourself from him so that you may be successful to the end of your days.

You who fear the Lord, wait for his mercy and do not turn away. Trust him and you will not lose your reward. For the Lord is compassion and loving kindness and saves in time of distress. Be wise to fear the Lord for he knows all things, call upon him, he knows you and would hear you! He is the almighty who knows the grains of sand, the drops of rain and the days of eternity.

Fear God, and your enemies will fear you.
