Chapter 5

1st Tim. 5:1 Rebuke not an elder but entreat him as a father; and the younger men as brothers;

1st Tim. 5:2 the elder women as mothers; the younger as sisters, with all purity.

1st Tim. 5:3 Honor widows that are widows indeed.

1st Tim. 5:4 But if any widow has children or nephews, let them learn first to show respect at home, and to repay their parents: for that is good and acceptable before God.

1st Tim. 5:5 Now she that is a widow indeed, and desolate, trusts in God, and continues in supplications and prayers night and day.

1st Tim. 5:6 But she that lives in pleasure is dead while she lives.

1st Tim. 5:7 And these things charge, that they may be blameless.

1st Tim. 5:8 But if anyone does not provide for his own and especially for those of his own house, he has denied the faith, and is worse than an unbeliever.

1st Tim. 5:9 Let a widow not be taken into the number under sixty years old, having been the wife of one man.

1st Tim. 5:10 Well known for good works; if she has raised 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.

1st Tim. 5:11 But the younger widows refuse: for when they have begun to grow wanton against Christ, they will marry;

1st Tim. 5:12 having damnation, because they have cast off their first faith.

1st Tim. 5:13 And beside this they learn to be idle, wandering about from house to house; and not only idle, but gossips also and busy bodies, speaking things which they ought not.

1st Tim. 5:14 Therefore I desire that the younger women marry, bear children, manage the house and give no occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully.

1st Tim. 5:15 For some are already turned aside after Satan.

1st Tim. 5:16 If any man or woman that believes has widows, let them help them, and let not the Assembly be charged; that it may help them that are widows indeed.

1st Tim. 5:17 Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honor, especially they who labor in the word and teaching.

1st Tim. 5:18 For the scripture says, you will not muzzle the ox that treads out the corn. And the laborer is worthy of his reward.

1st Tim. 5:19 Do not receive an accusation against an elder, unless before two or three witnesses.

1st Tim. 5:20 Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.

1st Tim. 5:21 I charge you before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, and the elect angels, that you observe these things without prejudice, doing nothing by partiality.

1st Tim. 5:22 On no man lay hands hastily, neither be partner of other men’s sins: guard your innocence.

1st Tim. 5:23 Drink no longer only water but use a little wine for your stomach’s sake and your often infirmities.

1st Tim. 5:24 Some men’s sins are open beforehand, going before to judgment; and some they follow after.

1st Tim. 5:25 Likewise also the good works of some are manifest beforehand; and they that are otherwise cannot be hidden.
