The Bible says that we should not fear many times without using the words "do not be afraid" or do not fear. This makes the number a lot closer to the 365. Although what the exact number is, I do not know.

Note: counting the number of instances listed above using a text editor, by seeing how many lines there are, and then subtracting the blank or header lines, there are 116.

It is important to keep in mind that some of the references refer to fear as we normally think of fear and some refer to fearing God.

the kjv bible says to feer not 365 times

There are about 103 places in the Bible where the phrase "Fear not" is used. The number of those places changes with different translations.

166. No, seriously. I have this program where it searches the Bible and it can tell you how many times a word appears. lol technology's awesome ain't it

In the King James version, the word yet is used 686 times in 657 verses. I didn't count them, I have a Bible on my computer that, if you do a search for a word, will tell you how many times that word is found in the Bible.

because God is by your side all the time

If I were to tell you If "If" was used many times in the Bible; Think About If If was never even used. What If right? If Ifwas never a word would I be speaking? What If?

78 times in the gospels the words of Jesus "I tell You the Truth" are recorded. I did not count to see how many of these times are retellings by the different authors of the same teaching.

No where in the Bible is this recorded, so people who talk of this, get their authority somewhere other than the Bible

The word "celebrate" appears three times in the KJV bible. (Lev 23:32, Lev 23:41, Isa 38:18)

You can find the answer to that by using a Concordance, whether online or the regular book format. It'll tell you how many times, where and when money was referred to throughout the Bible.

A lot of times. I can not tell you how much exactly but probably more than 100!

In the King James version the word - fear - appears 400 times the word - feared - appears 74 times the word - fearest - appears 3 times the word - feareth - appears 20 times the word - fearful - appears 11 times the word - fearfully - appears once the word - Fearfulness - appears 3 times the word - fearing - appears 8 times the word - fears - appears 4 times These are too many to list here.

Because to LORD said to many, many times in his word, the Bible. If we don't, not only will relationships be lost, but God will judge us.

It is hard to tell because there are so many different translations out there. There are no occurrences of the word "idiot" in the KJV, NKJV, Standard or NIV.

the bible did not tell how many but it is sure they are.

There are no bible references to the saying "Not to worry". There are 212 to the word afraid, 8 to the word perplexed. 246 for the word concerned and other numbers relating to the word worry.

The real question is how many times will you get to tell a woman what to do before she kicks you to the curb.

I do not know who invented this word, but I can tell you that it is not in the KJV Bible. Neither is 'reunite' in the Bible; though the word 'unite' appears six times, and 'union' appears three times.

430 in the New King James, please don't make me tell them all. (I'm being serious about 430.)

The Bible has so many different sections because it is a lot of stories and they all have different meanings and lessons to tell. It is also because all sorts of things happened at different times.

bullies fear when you laugh with them then you tell the teacher

Personally, I tell the truth because you need to have a good memory to be able to remember the different lies told to different other people at different times and my memory isn't 100%. However, that is not what the questioner asked. The reason is usually human nature and/or fear. However, this category ["Bible"] is the wrong category.

can you tell me about recovery from the bible
