    What does "fear not" mean in the context?

    Please have a look at the sentence below


    "For all those lamenting the ECB's lack of willingness to print, fear not: the almighty Chairsatan has vowed to valiantly take his place when needed."

    What does "fear not" mean in the context? Thanks

    Re: What does "fear not" mean in the context?

    It's a literary way of saying 'don't worry' or 'never mind' (literally 'don't be frightened', but there's nothing to be afraid of in this context).

    Thank you for clearing that, I supposed never mind means I am sorry if anything done mistakenly by me...

    NOT A TEACHER


    (1) I think that "never mind" often has this meaning:

    Mother: Darling, would you help me dry the dishes? I spent all day cooking dinner, and now I am very tired.

    Selfish and thoughtless daughter: Oh, Mom! I'm busy on Facebook. Then I have

    to twitter. And finally I have to go to You-Tube. I am soooooo busy!

    Mother: Never mind! ( = Forget that I asked you. I will dry the dishes myself!)
