- King James Bible "Authorized Version", Cambridge Edition
12:13 The conclusion - The sum of all that hath been said or written by wise men. Fear God - Which is put here, for all the inward worship of God, reverence, and love, and trust, and a devotedness of heart to serve and please him. The whole - It is his whole work and business, his whole perfection and happiness; it is the sum of what he need either know, or do, or enjoy.

Fear (reverence) God and keep His commandments, For this is the whole (completion of ) man.
Keeping God's commandments gives us a relatonship with God, without which we are an incomplete being.

Christians are necessarily obligated to obey God's Law as it is portrayed in the Scripture. Unfortunately, too many professing Christians do not know what the Scripture teaches and do not really care.They want the benefits of Christianity, but they do not want to comply withits laws

Fear God and keep his commandment, that is the only thing man can give in exchange of his life.
