Dread

DREAD, n. Dred. L., to dread; fearful; to tremble. The primary sense is probably to tremble, or to shrink.

1. Great fear, or apprehension of evil or danger. It expresses more than fear, and less than terror or fright. It is an uneasiness or alarm excited by expected pain, loss or other evil. We speak of the dread of evil; the dread of suffering; the dread of the divine displeasure. It differs from terror also in being less sudden or more continued.
2. Awe; fear united with respect.
3. Terror.

Shall not his dread fall on you. Job 13.

4. The cause of fear; the person or the thing dreaded.

Let him be your dread. Isaiah 8.

DREAD, a.

1. Exciting great fear or apprehension.
2. Terrible; frightful.
3. Awful; venerable in the highest degree; as dread sovereign; dread majesty; dread tribunal.

DREAD, v.t. To fear in a great degree; as, to dread the approach of a storm.

DREAD, v.i. To be in great fear.
