Book 54 : 1 TIMOTHY - Chapter 005


The elder women as mothers; the younger as sisters, with all purity


Honour widows that are widows indeed


But if any widow have children or nephews, let them learn first to shew piety at home, and to requite their parents: for that is good and acceptable before God


Now she that is a widow indeed, and desolate, trusteth in God, and continueth in supplications and prayers night and day


But she that liveth in pleasure is dead while she liveth


And these things give in charge, that they may be blameless


But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel


Let not a widow be taken into the number under threescore years old, having been the wife of one man


Well reported of for good works; if she have brought up children, if she have lodged strangers, if she have washed the saints' feet, if she have relieved the afflicted, if she have diligently followed every good work


But the younger widows refuse: for when they have begun to wax wanton against Christ, they will marry


Having damnation, because they have cast off their first faith


And withal they learn to be idle, wandering about from house to house; and not only idle, but tattlers also and busybodies, speaking things which they ought not


I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully


For some are already turned aside after Satan


If any man or woman that believeth have widows, let them relieve them, and let not the church be charged; that it may relieve them that are widows indeed


Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine


For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward


Against an elder receive not an accusation, but before two or three witnesses


Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear


I charge thee before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, and the elect angels, that thou observe these things without preferring one before another, doing nothing by partiality


Lay hands suddenly on no man, neither be partaker of other men's sins: keep thyself pure


Drink no longer water, but use a little wine for thy stomach's sake and thine often infirmities


Some men's sins are open beforehand, going before to judgment; and some men they follow after


Likewise also the good works of some are manifest beforehand; and they that are otherwise cannot be hid
