  • Henceforth the Majesty of God revere;
  • Fear him and you have nothing else to fear.
  • Fordyce.

    If we wish ourselves to be high, we should treat that which is over us as high.


    To yield reverence to another, to hold ourselves and our lives at his disposal, is not slavery; often, it is the noblest state in which a man can live in this world.


    What a sweet reverence is that when a young man deems his mistress a little more than mortal and almost chides himself for longing to bring her close to his heart.

    Nath. Hawthorne.

  • When once thy foot enters the church, be bare.
  • God is more there than thou: for thou art there
  • Only by His permission. Then beware,
  • And make thyself all reverence and fear.
  • Herbert.
