Terrible, Terror


TERRIBLE, TERROR - ter'-i-b'l, ter'-er (yare', "to be feared," "reverenced," arits, "powerful," "tyrannical," 'ayom, "aweinspiring," chittith "terror," ballahah, "a worn-out or wasted thing," 'emah, "fright"; phoberos, "dreadful," phobos, "fear"): The above terms, and many others which employed, denote whatever, by horrible aspect, or by greatness, power, or cruelty, affrights men (Dt 1:19; 26:8; Dan 2:31). God is terrible by reason of His awful greatness, His infinite power, His inscrutable dealings, His perfect holiness, His covenant faithfulness, His strict justice and fearful judgments (Ex 34:10; Dt 7:21; Neh 9:32; Job 6:4; 37:22; Ps 65:5; 88:15 f; Joel 2:11; Zeph 2:11; Heb 12:21). The term is also applied to the enemies of God and of His people (Isa 13:11; 25:3 ff; 49:25; Dan 7:7; 1 Pet 3:14). "The terror (the Revised Version (British and American) "fear") of the Lord" (2 Cor 5:11) denotes the reverence or fear inspired by the thought that Christ is judge (2 Cor 5:10).
