What does it mean to be afraid of God?

Proverbs 1: 7 says: "The principle of wisdom is the fear of the Lord."

The fear of God is respect for Him, submission to his education and reverential glorification of Him.

To fear God is to honor him.

To Fear God means to Hallow and revere him that you cant think of dong something that will displease him.

I agree. Fear of God is respect for God.

Fear of God is also displayed in ones behaviour. Ie. I fear God and therefore I will follow his commandments. Nor will I engage in sinful behaviour. Because, I am afraid of the consequences. For my community and my soul.
