The Scriptures Must Be Read in the Fear of God

8. The Sacred Scriptures must be read in the fear of God, so that we may stand securely and turn aside neither to the right nor to the left, whether in faith, in morals, or in any other actions (Joshua 1:7,8; Deuteronomy 5:32). For the fear of God is also the highest wisdom, so that it alone knows the right way and is heard in this, its house, as the one and only head of the household.
