    You seem to have a few typos, especially with capitalization and "dear" instead of "fear". – Nathan Tuggy Apr 22 '17 at 0:03

The first sentence is correct because the tense of "were" matches the tense of "said."

By the way:

  • The word "I" is always capitalized. "Fear not for I am with you."
  • Your last sentence isn't correct. Any of these sentences would be correct:
    • I'm not sure if the right word to use is "are" or "were."
    • I'm not sure if "are" or "were" is the right word to use.
    • I'm not sure what the right word to use is.
