7 says, For God has not given us a spirit of fear
, but of power and of love and of a sound mind (NKJV) Other
versions use the word, timidity which when looking up, I found the following as part of the definition:
2. characterized by or indicating fear: a timid approach to a problem.
1540–50; < L timidus fearful, equiv. to tim(ēre) to fear + -idus -id
ti⋅mid⋅i⋅ty, tim⋅id⋅ness, noun
1. fearful, fainthearted. See cowardly.
