120 My flesh trembles for fear and awe of you; and I am afraid of your judgments.
2 For all these things my hand has made, and so they have come into being," says the LORD. "But this is the man I will look on [favorably]: he who is of a humble and contrite spirit, and trembles at my word.
12 Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence, continue to work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.1 [From the Word of the Lord within: "Salvation is to be delivered from sin. Salvation is being freed from even the desire of your sins." In His messages to the seven churches, Jesus mentions to every church, (all seven), how their works are key. Jesus said, I have not found your works perfect before God. Rev 3:2-3. Jesus wants perfect works.]
21 And the sight was so terrible that Moses said, "I exceedingly fear and quake.") [The early Quakers were nicknamed "Quakers" because they trembled in the fear of the Lord.]
16 When I heard, my belly trembled; my lips quivered at the sound. Rottenness entered into my bones; I trembled in myself. I will wait quietly for the day of trouble when one comes up against the people who will invade them with his troops.
18 Now when all the people saw the thunderings and the lightnings and heard the sound of the trumpet and saw the mountain smoking, they moved and stood at a distance and trembled with fear.
9 O worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness. Tremble before him, all the earth.
22 Do you not fear me?" says the Lord. "Will you not tremble at my presence,3 who has placed the sand as the boundary of the sea by a perpetual decree, so that it cannot pass it? And though its waves toss themselves, yet can they not prevail; though they roar, yet can they not pass over it.
|James 2:19 |
19 You say you believe that God is one; you do well. Even the demons believe that and tremble.4 [realize, James was writing to Jewish believers of the Father, the Word (Jesus), and the Holy Spirit being one spirit, and without conflict to — Hear, O Israel: the Lord our God, the Lord is one! Deu 6:4. So James is in effect saying, "you say you believe in Jesus, you do well, the demons do too, but they tremble at his name in fear — do you?" And the demons do believe, fear, tremble, and beg "the Son of the Most High God," as recorded in the Bible.]
