Summary: Fear of God or God-consciousness (Taqwa in Arabic) is a virtue that has been equally mentioned in all the scriptures as a key to success in both the worlds.


The Prosperity of Him Who Fears the LORD
1 Praise ye the LORD.
Blessed is the man that feareth the LORD,
that delighteth greatly in his commandments.


2 His seed shall be mighty upon earth:
the generation of the upright shall be blessed.


3 Wealth and riches shall be in his house:
and his righteousness endureth for ever.


4 Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness:
he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.


5 A good man showeth favor, and lendeth:
he will guide his affairs with discretion.


6 Surely he shall not be moved for ever:
the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance.


7 He shall not be afraid of evil tidings:
his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD.


8 His heart is established, he shall not be afraid,
until he see his desire upon his enemies.


9 He hath dispersed,
he hath given to the poor;
his righteousness endureth for ever; 2 Cor. 9.9
his horn shall be exalted with honor.


10 The wicked shall see it, and be grieved;
he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away:
the desire of the wicked shall perish.
