Mitzvah #9 - Fear the Lord

It's a Mitzvah to fear and be in awe of Hashem.

Fear and awe of Hashem is acquired by studying the awesome ways in which Hashem runs the world.

When one has the chance to do a sin and decides to refrain because Hashem watches everything we do, one has fulfilled the Mitzvah of fearing Hashem.

Applies to everybody all the time, everywhere.

Pasuk: You shall fear Hashem your Gcd (Dvarim 6:13)
