"Fear" in the Old Testament when referring to God,(EX. Fear the Lord), has to do with "reverence" or "stand in awe of", not "being afraid of".

The Hebrew word transliterated yare’, frequently translated “fear,” also means “religious awe.”

Saints in Psalm 34:9 (Hebrew - "Qadowsh") would be better thought of as "Holy ones" or those He "set apart".

So, Psalm 34:9
"Fear the LORD, you his saints,
for those who fear him lack nothing"

Could also be considered:

Revere the Lord, you his people set apart,
for those who revere him lack nothing
