Respect—found twenty-six times in twenty-six Old Testament verses and twelve times in twelve verses in the New Testament
Variations: respect, respected, respecter, respecteth
Last usage in the Old Testament: Lamentations 4:16 (respected)
First usage in the New Testament: Acts 10:34 (respecter)
Interesting fact: On twelve occasions, the Bible uses the phrase “respect unto.” On every occasion, the phrase is used to depict proper respect given to others, to the Lord, or to His word.
Bible study tip: All scripture that is given comes by inspiration (2 Timothy 3:16). However, far too many well-meaning Christians mistakenly claim that the writers of scripture were somehow themselves inspired. This distinction is not something that the Bible ever infers. In fact, if the writers were inspired, the argument could be made that everything they spoke or wrote would be inspired and should be included in the canon of scripture. Yet, the Bible references several books or epistles written by Bible writers that are not contained within the canon of scripture. For example, Paul referred to an epistle written to the believers at Corinth prior to the epistle known as First Corinthians (1 Corinthians 5:9). When any Bible student approaches such inferences, he must do so in faith believing that no scripture is missing and that those writings left out were deemed unnecessary for a completed canon by God.
