The Fear of the Lord is what is missing and the presence of God. (Proverbs 9:10) The fear of the LORD [is
] the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy [is
] understanding. (Proverbs 1:7) The fear of the LORD [is
] the beginning of knowledge: [but
] fools despise wisdom and instruction. (Proverbs 15:33) The fear of the LORD [is
] the instruction of wisdom; and before honour [is
] humility. (Proverbs 9:11) For by me thy days shall be multiplied, and the years of thy life shall be increased. Whatever does not have the fear of the Lord in it is unwise and foolish, temporary and vain; it is doomed to fail.
