What is Fear?

Psalm 112:1 is instructive.  One of the things about Hebrew poetry is parallelism.  The poet will say the same thing twice.  In some cases, like this one, the poet will change what he says with both the elements being repeated being essentially equal.
Do you ever wonder what it means to fear God?  Thoughts at DTTB.
The author of Psalm 112 equates through parallelism:
  • Fearing the Lord
  • Delighting in His commandments
Why is this instructive?  I have been in many conversations about what it means to fear the Lord.  Here the psalmist tells us that it is relatively simple.  We need to love, delight, cherish His Word.
