Deacons, in the same way, must be reverent, not double-tongued, not addicted to much wine, not greedy for money;
holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience.
Let them also first be tested; then let them serve as deacons, if they are blameless.
Their wives in the same way must be reverent, not slanderers, temperate, faithful in all things.
Let deacons be husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well.
For those who have served well as deacons gain to themselves a good standing, and great boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus.
