יָרֵא Strong’s #3372 yarey

And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.

Genesis 3:10


The concrete Hebraic meaning of this verb is “to flow.” It is related to the word yorehh (Strongs #3138) meaning “first rain” and ye’or (Strongs #2975) meaning “stream.” When you are seriously afraid of something, you can feel your insides “flowing.” This is the meaning of this word that is usually translated simply as “fear.”
