So there has been much discussion of this word fear offline. Look for more postings on this very soon from the Greek perspective. My friend Huw of at the Sarx Blog has a wonderful post on the topic from the Hebrew perspective.

I looked in my Romanian Liturgy book for that phrase and the word is frica. So I had to get out my Romanian English dictionary to seek out the meaning of that word. Frica = Fear, Fright, Panic. So we see the same theme. So I am guessing that the original meaning is fear as in be afraid.

Like I said this is a stream of consciousness type of post so hang in there with me.
