Never use harsh words when you correct an older man, but talk to him as if he were your father. Talk to younger men as if they were your brothers,
older women as if they were your mothers, and younger women as if they were your sisters, while keeping yourself morally pure.
Honor widows who have no families.
The children or grandchildren of a widow must first learn to respect their own family by repaying their parents. This is pleasing in God's sight.
A widow who has no family has placed her confidence in God by praying and asking for his help night and day.
But the widow who lives for pleasure is dead although she is still alive.
