What Does the Bible Say About Fearing Man?

Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the LORD is kept safe. (Proverbs 29:25).

When I am afraid, I will trust in you.  In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not be afraid.  What can mortal man do to me? (Psalm 56:3-4).

Hear me, you who know what is right, you people who have my law in your hearts: Do not fear the reproach of men or be terrified by their insults.  For the moth will eat them up like a garment; the worm will devour them like wool…  I, even I, am he who comforts you.  Who are you that you fear mortal men, the sons of men, who are but grass, that you forget the LORD your Maker…, that you live in constant terror every day? (Isaiah 51:7-8, 12-13).

I say to you, My friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do.  But I will warn you whom to fear: fear the One who after He has killed has authority to cast into hell; yes, I tell you, fear Him! (Luke 12:4-5, NASB).
