Here is a trustworthy saying:1 If anyone sets his heart on being an overseer,a2 he desires a noble task.
Now the overseer must be above reproach,3 the husband of but one wife,4 temperate,5 self-controlled, respectable, hospitable,6 able to teach,73
not given to drunkenness,8 not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome,9 not a lover of money.104
He must manage his own family well and see that his children obey him with proper respect.115
(If anyone does not know how to manage his own family, how can he take care of God's church?)12
