But I will suggest to you, whom ye should fearFear him who, after killing, hath authority to cast into gehenna,Yea, I say unto youHim, fear ye.
After Yahweh your God, shall ye walk And him, shall ye revere,And his commandments, shall ye observe. And unto his voice, shall ye hearken, And him, shall ye serve And unto him, shall ye cleave.
The reverence of Yahweh, addeth days, but, the years of the lawless, shall be shortened.
11 Come, ye children! hearken unto me, The reverence of Yahweh, will I teach you.
12 Who is the man that desireth life, Loving days, that he may see good?
13 Keep thy tongue from wickedness, And thy lips from speaking deceit:
14 Depart from wickedness and do good, Aim at well-being, and pursue it.

The reverence of Yahweh, is a well-spring of life, that a man may avoid the snares of death.
9 The, reverence of Yahweh, is clean, Enduring evermore,The, decisions of Yahweh, are faithful, They are righteous, altogether:
10 More desirable, than gold, yea than much fine gold, Sweeter, also than honey, or than droppings from the comb.
11 Even thine own servant, taketh warning by them, In the keeping of them, great is the reward.
And said to the son of earth, Lo! the reverence of the Lord, that, is wisdom, and, to avoid evil, is understanding.
How happy the man who is ever circumspect, whereas, he that hardeneth his heart, shall fall into calamity.
The beginning of wisdom, is the reverence of Yahweh, and, the knowledge of the Holy, is understanding;
Now, therefore, let the dread of Yahweh be upon you,observe and do, for there is, with Yahweh our God, neither perversity nor respect of persons nor the taking of bribes.
And, when thy brother waxeth poor, and his hand becometh feeble with thee, then shalt thou strengthen him, as a sojourner and a settler, so shall he live with thee.
Do not accept from him interest or profit, but stand thou in awe of thy God,so shall thy brother live with thee.
Thou shalt therefore keep the commandments of Yahweh thy God,to walk in his ways and to revere him.
