1 Timothy 5
| 1 Timothy 5v1-2|
1 Do not rebuke an older man, but exhort him as a father, younger men as brothers, 2 older women as mothers, younger women as sisters, with all purity.
| 1 Timothy 5v3|
3 Honor widows who are really widows.
| 1 Timothy 5v4a|
4 But if any widow has children or grandchildren,
| 1 Timothy 5v4b|
let them first learn to show piety at home and to repay their parents; for this is good and acceptable before God.
| 1 Timothy 5v5|
5 Now she who is really a widow, and left alone, trusts in God and continues in supplications and prayers night and day.
| 1 Timothy 5v6|
6 But she who lives in pleasure is dead while she lives.
| 1 Timothy 5v7|
7 And these things command, that they may be blameless.
| 1 Timothy 5v8|
8 But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.
| 1 Timothy 5v9|
9 Do not let a widow under sixty years old be taken into the number, and not unless she has been the wife of one man,
| 1 Timothy 5v10|
10 well reported for good works: if she has brought up children, if she has lodged strangers, if she has washed the saints' feet, if she has relieved the afflicted, if she has diligently followed every good work.
| 1 Timothy 5v11|
11 But refuse the younger widows; for when they have begun to grow wanton against Christ, they desire to marry,
| 1 Timothy 5v12|
12 having condemnation because they have cast off their first faith.
| 1 Timothy 5v13|
13 And besides they learn to be idle, wandering about from house to house, and not only idle but also gossips and busybodies, saying things which they ought not.
| 1 Timothy 5v14|
14 Therefore I desire that the younger widows marry, bear children, manage the house, give no opportunity to the adversary to speak reproachfully.
| 1 Timothy 5v15|
15 For some have already turned aside after Satan.
| 1 Timothy 5v16|
16 If any believing man or woman has widows, let them relieve them, and do not let the church be burdened, that it may relieve those who are really widows.
| 1 Timothy 5v17|
17 Let the elders who rule well be counted worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in the word and doctrine.
| 1 Timothy 5v18|
18 For the Scripture says, "You shall not muzzle an ox while it treads out the grain," and, "The laborer is worthy of his wages."
| 1 Timothy 5v19|
19 Do not receive an accusation against an elder except from two or three witnesses.
| 1 Timothy 5v20|
20 Those who are sinning rebuke in the presence of all, that the rest also may fear.
| 1 Timothy 5v21|
21 I charge you before God and the Lord Jesus Christ and the elect angels that you observe these things without prejudice, doing nothing with partiality.
| 1 Timothy 5v22|
22 Do not lay hands on anyone hastily, nor share in other people's sins; keep yourself pure.
| 1 Timothy 5v23|
23 No longer drink only water, but use a little wine for your stomach's sake and your frequent infirmities.
| 1 Timothy 5v24|
24 Some men's sins are clearly evident, preceding them to judgment, but those of some men follow later.
| 1 Timothy 5v25|
25 Likewise, the good works of some are clearly evident, and those that are otherwise cannot be hidden.
