In the fear of the LORD one has strong confidence

The word “fear” makes modern Christians nervous, but the New Testament embraces it: “Honor all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God.” (I Peter 2:17). The LORD’s unshakable love and care for His people means that their fear of Him and Him alone will never disappoint them. “What shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?”

One who is righteous is a guide to his neighbor

God gives us our families, but we choose our friends. Spend time with sneering losers, and you will become one. Associate with the snooty smart set, and you will share their attitude. Put in time with respectful, hard-working types, and their good habits will become yours. So the Book of Proverbs tells the “son” repeatedly, choose friends well.
