What’s more , {NEQ} God in his goodness has granted safety {RPT} to everyone {NEQ} sailing with you .
Acts.27:29 29φοβούμενοί τε μή που κατὰ τραχεῖς τόπους ἐκπέσωμεν, ἐκ πρύμνης ῥίψαντες ἀγκύρας τέσσαρας ηὔχοντο ἡμέραν γενέσθαι. 29 At this rate they were afraid we would soon be driven against the rocks along the shore , so they threw out four anchors from the back of the ship and prayed for daylight .
Rom.11:20 20καλῶς— τῇ ἀπιστίᾳ ἐξεκλάσθησαν, σὺ δὲ τῇ πίστει ἕστηκας. μὴ ὑψηλὰ φρόνει, ἀλλὰ φοβοῦ. 20 Yes , but remember those branches were broken off because they {RPT} didn’t believe in Christ , and you are there {RPT} because you do believe . So don’t think highly of yourself , but fear what could happen .
Rom.13:3 3οἱ γὰρ ἄρχοντες οὐκ εἰσὶν φόβος τῷ ἀγαθῷ ἔργῳ, ἀλλὰ τῷ κακῷ. θέλεις δὲ μὴ φοβεῖσθαι τὴν ἐξουσίαν; τὸ ἀγαθὸν ποίει καὶ ἕξεις ἔπαινον ἐξ αὐτῆς. 3 For the authorities do not strike fear in people who are doing right , but in those who are doing wrong . {NEQ} Would you like to live without fear of the authorities ? Do what is right , and {RPT} they will honor you .
Rom.13:4 4θεοῦ γὰρ διάκονός ἐστιν, σοὶ εἰς τὸ ἀγαθόν. ἐὰν δὲ τὸ κακὸν ποιῇς, φοβοῦ, οὐ γὰρ εἰκῇ τὴν μάχαιραν φορεῖ. θεοῦ γὰρ διάκονός ἐστιν, ἔκδικος εἰς ὀργὴν τῷ τὸ κακὸν πράσσοντι. 4 {NEQ} The authorities are God’s servants , sent for your {NEQ} good . But if you are doing {NEQ} wrong , of course you should be afraid , for they have the power to punish you . {NEQ} They are God’s servants , sent for the very purpose of punishing those who do what is wrong .
2Cor.11:3 3φοβοῦμαι δὲ μή πως, ὡς ὄφις ἐξηπάτησεν Εὕαν ἐν τῇ πανουργίᾳ αὐτοῦ, φθαρῇ τὰ νοήματα ὑμῶν ἀπὸ τῆς ἁπλότητος καὶ τῆς ἁγνότητος τῆς εἰς τὸν Χριστόν. 3 But I fear that somehow your {RPT} pure {RPT} and {RPT} undivided devotion to {NEQ} Christ will be corrupted , just as Eve was deceived by the cunning ways of the serpent {RPT} .
2Cor.12:20 20φοβοῦμαι γὰρ μή πως ἐλθὼν οὐχ οἵους θέλω εὕρω ὑμᾶς, κἀγὼ εὑρεθῶ ὑμῖν οἷον οὐ θέλετε· μή πως ἔρις, ζῆλος, θυμοί, ἐριθείαι, καταλαλιαί, ψιθυρισμοί, φυσιώσεις, ἀκαταστασίαι· 20 For I am afraid that when I come I won’t like what I find {RPT} , and you won’t like my response {NEQ} . I am afraid that I will find quarreling , jealousy , anger , selfishness , slander , gossip , arrogance , and disorderly behavior .
Gal.2:12 12πρὸ τοῦ γὰρ ἐλθεῖν τινὰς ἀπὸ Ἰακώβου, μετὰ τῶν ἐθνῶν συνήσθιεν· ὅτε δέ, ἦλθον, ὑπέστελλεν καὶ ἀφώριζεν ἑαυτόν· φοβούμενος τοὺς ἐκ περιτομῆς. 12 When he first arrived , {NEQ} he ate with the Gentile Christians , who were not circumcised .

Col.3:22 22οἱ δοῦλοι, ὑπακούετε κατὰ πάντα τοῖς κατὰ σάρκα κυρίοις· μὴ ἐν ὀφθαλμοδουλίᾳ, ὡς ἀνθρωπάρεσκοι· ἀλλ᾽ ἐν ἁπλότητι καρδίας φοβούμενοι τὸν κύριον. 22 {NEQ} Slaves , obey your earthly masters in everything you do . {NEQ} Try to please them all the time , not just when they are watching you . {NEQ} Serve them sincerely because of your reverent fear of the Lord .

1Jn.4:18 18φόβος οὐκ ἔστιν ἐν τῇ ἀγάπῃ, ἀλλ᾽ τελεία ἀγάπη ἔξω βάλλει τὸν φόβον· ὅτι φόβος κόλασιν ἔχει, δὲ φοβούμενος οὐ τετελείωται ἐν τῇ ἀγάπῃ. 18 Such love has no fear , because perfect {NEQ} love expels all {NEQ} fear . If we are {NEQ} afraid , {NEQ} it is for {NEQ} fear of punishment , and this shows that we have not fully experienced his perfect {NEQ} {NEQ} love .
Rev.1:17 17καὶ ὅτε εἶδον αὐτόν, ἔπεσα πρὸς τοὺς πόδας αὐτοῦ ὡς νεκρός. καὶ ἔθηκεν τὴν δεξιὰν αὐτοῦ ἐπ᾽ ἐμὲ λέγων, Μὴ φοβοῦ· ἐγώ εἰμι πρῶτος καὶ ἔσχατος. 17 {NEQ} When I saw him , I fell at his {NEQ} feet as if I were dead .
