    The phrase "fear of the Lord" appears 30 times in the KJB, according to BibleGateway.com. Two of my favorite are

    2 Chronicles 19.7:
    Wherefore now let the fear of the Lord be upon you; take heed and do it: for there is no iniquity with the Lord our God, nor respect of persons, nor taking of gifts.

    Acts of the Apostles 9.31:
    Then had the churches rest throughout all Judaea and Galilee and Samaria, and were edified; and walking in the fear of the Lord, and in the comfort of the Holy Ghost, were multiplied.​
