Fear Not – #BeNotAfraid #DoNotFear#DoNotBeAfraid

Hello everyone, happy thursday.

Today let’s find out how many times “fear not” actually appeared in the Bible and in what context they’d.

I had to do this because when I learnt that FearNot appeared 365 times in the Bible i was curious to find out if the phrase “FearNot” actually appeared 365 times in it literal context. 

According to http://musingsofaministerswife.com/ there are 365 FearNot in the Bible but the phrase in the intended context is only used 80+ times

The phrase “fear not” is used in other contexts, but you wouldn’t want them to apply to you. 

Other word matching that would be equal to “fear not” (“do not be afraid”, “do not fear”, “be not afraid”) is used 30+ times
