1 Timothy 5:8

Provideth not for his own (twn idiwn ou pronoei). Condition of first class with ei and present active (or middle pronoeitai) indicative of pronoew, old verb, to think beforehand. Pauline word in N.T. only here, 2 Corinthians 8:21 ; Romans 12:7 . With genitive case. He hath denied the faith (thn pistin hrnhtai). Perfect middle indicative of old verb arneomai. His act of impiety belies ( Titus 1:16 ) his claim to the faith ( Revelation 2:13 ). Worse than an unbeliever (apistou ceirwn). Ablative case of apistou after the comparative ceirwn. Who makes no profession of piety.
