For God does not (or: did not) give a spirit of cowardice (of timidity), but rather [a spirit] of ability (of power) and of love and of soundness of frame of mind (of wholeness in thinking; of healthiness of attitude; of sanity; of sensibility; of controlled reasonableness; of rational moderation; [lit.: of a saved diaphragm] 2Timothy 1:7 Jonathan Mitchell-New Testament.
The fear of the Lord comes from respect for Spiritual Law(s) and the consequences of breaking them. To me, these verses get at the intent for the “fear of the Lord” Scriptures:
Thine own wickedness shall correct thee, and thy backslidings shall reprove thee: know therefore and see that it is an evil thing and bitter, that thou hast forsaken the LORD thy God, and that my fear is not in thee, saith the Lord GOD of hosts, Jeremiah 2:19 KJV.
And though the Lord give you the bread of adversity, and the water of affliction, yet shall not thy teachers be removed into a corner any more, but thine eyes shall (now) see thy teachers: And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left, Isaiah 30:20-21 KJV. (Our Teachers, in our foolishness, were Adversity and Affliction-mdw)
Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy word, Psalm 119:67 KJV
The first audio on fear is by Brian Sherring maybe in the 1960’s.
The second audio is by Arthur C. Lambourne, not sure of the dates but, the Messages are Timeless.

Knowledge=Strong's #H1847 da'at
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction, Proverbs 1:7 KJV
And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him,…..the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD; Isaiah 11:2(a & d) [refers to Christ].
In the branch of Jewish mysticism known as Kabbalah, Daʻat (“Knowledge”, Hebrew: דעת [ˈdaʕaθ]) is the location (the mystical state) where all ten sefirot in the Tree of Life are united as one. In Daʻat, all sefirot exist in their perfected state of infinite sharing.
The three sefirot of the left column that would receive and conceal the Divine light, instead share and reveal it. Since all sefirot radiate infinitely self-giving Divine Light, it is no longer possible to distinguish one sefira from another; thus they are one.
Daʻat is not always depicted in representations of the sefirot; and could be abstractly considered an “empty slot” into which the germ of any other sefirot can be placed. Properly, the Divine Light is always shining, but not all humans can see it.
The revelation or the concealment of the Divine Light shining through Daʻat does not happen only in Daʻat itself.
It can appear by a human perspective also within the worldly affairs (Malkuth). The perception of the Divine Light shining can clearly occur also in Malkuth, all the times that humans become self-giving (Altruism).
However, humans who remain selfish (Selfishness) cannot see it, and for them its benefits seem “hidden”
