1 Timothy 3:2; 1 Timothy 3:7; 1 Timothy 3:15; 1 Timothy 5:13 (King James Version)
A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;
Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.

And withal they learn to be idle, wandering about from house to house; and not only idle, but tattlers also and busybodies, speaking things which they ought not.
