One of the main ways we can come to know God's revelation is through Sacred Scripture.

Texts such as the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John and the letters of Saint Paul were recognized   
by the early Church as not just being any ordinary texts but writings inspired by God himself.

From his youth Saint Mark the Ascetic's fondest pursuit was the reading of Holy Scripture.

It was the Catholic Church who in the year 397 held the Council of Carthage that determined   
which books were deemed to be true and would make up Sacred Scripture.

'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.
