Fear of the Lord – கர்த்தருக்குப் பயப்படும் பயம்

Then you will understand the fear of the Lord, And find the knowledge of God-Proverbs 2:5

அப்பொழுது கர்த்தருக்குப் பயப்படுதல் இன்னதென்று நீ உணர்ந்து, தேவனை அறியும் அறிவைக் கண்டடைவாய்-நீதிமொழிகள் 2:5

యెహోవాయందు భయభక్తులు కలిగియుండుట యెట్టిదో నీవు గ్రహించెదవు దేవునిగూర్చిన విజ్ఞానము నీకు లభించును-సామెతలు 2:5

ನೀನು ಕರ್ತನ ಭಯವನ್ನು ತಿಳಿದುಕೊಳ್ಳುವಿ. ದೇವರ ಜ್ಞಾನವನ್ನು ಕಂಡುಕೊಳ್ಳುವಿ-ಙ್ಞಾನೋಕ್ತಿಗಳು 2:5

നീ യഹോവാഭക്തി ഗ്രഹിക്കയും ദൈവപരിജ്ഞാനം കണ്ടെത്തുകയും ചെയ്യും-സദൃശ്യവാക്യങ്ങൾ 2:5

Prayer – ஜெபம்

Help me Lord Jesus, to understand the fear of the Lord, and to find the knowledge of God. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.

தகப்பனே, உமக்கு பயப்படுதல் இன்னதென்று நான் உணர்ந்து, உம்மை அறியும் அறிவை கண்டடைய எனக்கு உதவி் செய்யும். இயேசுவின் மூலம் ஜெபிக்கிறோம் பிதாவே. ஆமென்.

Proverbs 2:5 – Meaning / Commentary

The key passage of the book of Proverbs is found in chapter 1 verse 7. There, Solomon indicates that true knowledge begins with respect for God, and those who turn from instruction are foolish. The “then” statement found here in verse 5 gives greater depth and meaning to that concept. In the book of Proverbs, understanding is the mastery of a subject. The subject explained in this verse is the fear of the Lord. In Proverbs 1:7, we learned to put God first, to give honor and respect of the Lord priority over merely gaining knowledge for the sake of knowledge.

In ancient philosophy, virtues were a set of fundamental characteristics exhibited by moral men. This passage from Proverbs implies traits such as wisdom, integrity, courage, and justice. Virtue, in the philosophical sense, requires a person to develop all of these various abilities. The “then” statement featured in this verse concludes the prior “if” statements, leading us towards a full-circle understanding of virtuous living.

These steps can be arranged in a logical, natural sequence for personal application. First give priority to the “fear of the Lord,” then acquire knowledge which glorifies God, then learn to live virtuously, and then, finally, you will fully understand what it means to fear (respect, honor) the Lord.
