Why turn away from every evil – immediately – setting before your eyes no unclean thing? Why refuse to keep company with those who do not want to learn the Fear of the Lord? Why revere His Holiness and tremble in His presence? Why reject the pursuit of worldly pleasures? (The deceitfulness of riches, the things money can buy, the lusts of the flesh and the pride of life).
Why obey with time decisions - submitting every minute and hour to the obedience of Christ? Why obey quickly and completely – the opposite of perverse thought and speech(the reluctance to obey) that God despises?
Why keep his commands with an undivided heart and store them up within you? Why walk in humility? The opposite of pride and arrogance? Why put your hope in God – in his unfailing love? Why put your trust in him? (your full confidence, delighting yourself in him, being pliable, fully surrendered and submitted to his perfect will and timing in your life). Because this is the Fear of the LORD.
