'Novissime autem misit ad eos filium suum, dicens : Verebuntur filium meum.'

- Matthew 21:37, Vulgate

The word 'verebuntur' is the grammaticaly adjusted word for which the root is 'vereor' a word that 'revereor' is derived from. From these two words if we think a moment of what the English words might be that were derived from the Latin, we can think of venerate and revere or reverence. And in fact the Latin is where we get the English from, according to the Latin and English dictionaries I briefly consulted.
