This is a true saying: If a man desire the office of bishop, he desireth a good work.
A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behavior, given to hospitality, apt at teaching;
not given to wine, not violent, not greedy for filthy lucre, but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;
one who ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all dignity.
(For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)
He must not be a novice in the faith, lest being lifted up with pride, he fall into the condemnation of the devil.
Moreover he must have a good reputation with those who are outsiders, lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.
