Recently I just been meditation on what the fear of the lord is. I fear going to hell, but I didn't realize that

New International Version (©1984) Prov 8:13
To fear the LORD is to hate evil; I hate pride and arrogance, evil behavior and perverse speech.
I gotta hate evil more and evil behavior, and perverse speech, all without being arrogant and prideful....that's incredibly difficult cuz i can be very self rightous.

that one ya name, 'work in progress'.

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; wisdom and instruction fools despise.
-- Proverbs 1:7

The path of the wicked enter not, walk not on the way of evil men; Shun it, cross it not, turn aside from it and pass on.
-- Proverbs 4:14-15

There are six things the Lord hates, yes, seven are an abonimation to him; Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood; A heart that plots wicked schemes, feet that run swiftly to evil, The false witness who utters lies, and he who sows discord among brothers.
-- Proverbs 6:16-19
