TERRIBLE, TERROR [International Standard Bible Encyclopedia]

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 (Deuteronomy 1:19; 26:8; Daniel 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 (Exodus 34:10; Deuteronomy 7:21; Nehemiah 9:32; Job 6:4; 37:22; Psalms 65:5; 88:15 f; Joel 2:11; Zephaniah 2:11; Hebrews 12:21).

The term is also applied to the enemies of God and of His people (Isaiah 13:11; 25:3 ff; Isaiah 49:25; Daniel 7:7; 1 Peter 3:14).

"The terror (the Revised Version (British and American) "fear") of the Lord" (2 Corinthians 5:11) denotes the reverence or fear inspired by the thought that Christ is judge (2 Corinthians 5:10).
