Honor: character above reproach; living by biblical standards.

1 Samuel 2:30 "Therefore the LORD God of Israel declares, 'I did indeed say that your house and the house of your father should walk before Me forever'; but now the LORD declares, 'Far be it fro Me --for those who honor Me I will honor, and those who despise Me will be lightly esteemed."
