Deacons, likewise, should be worthy of respect, not hypocritical, not drinking a lot of wine, not greedy for money,
holding the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience.
And they must also be tested first; if they prove blameless, then they can serve as deacons.
Wives, too, must be worthy of respect, not slanderers, self-controlled, faithful in everything.
Deacons must be husbands of one wife, managing their children and their own households competently.
For those who have served well as deacons acquire a good standing for themselves, and great boldness in the faith that is in Christ Jesus.
