The saying is sure: a whoever aspires to the office of bishop b desires a noble task.
Now a bishop c must be above reproach, married only once, d temperate, sensible, respectable, hospitable, an apt teacher,
not a drunkard, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, and not a lover of money.
He must manage his own household well, keeping his children submissive and respectful in every way—
for if someone does not know how to manage his own household, how can he take care of God's church?
He must not be a recent convert, or he may be puffed up with conceit and fall into the condemnation of the devil.
Moreover, he must be well thought of by outsiders, so that he may not fall into disgrace and the snare of the devil.
