Doug O'Donnell defines the fear of the Lord in his new book, "The Beginning and End of Wisdom."

"According to the book of Proverbs, 'the fear of the Lord' is a continual (23:17), humble, and faithful submission to Yahweh, which compels one to hate evil (8:13) and turn away from it (16:6) and brings with it rewards better than all earthly treasures (15:16)--the rewards of a love for and a knowledge of God (1:29; 2:5; 9:10; 15:33), and long life (10:27; 14:27a; 19:23a) confidence (14:26), satisfaction, and protection (19:23)."  

--Doug O'Donnell, The Beginning and End of Wisdom, p.37
