1 Timothy 5:1-6 GW

1 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,
2 older women as if they were your mothers, and younger women as if they were your sisters, while keeping yourself morally pure.
3 Honor widows who have no families.
4 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.
5 A widow who has no family has placed her confidence in God by praying and asking for his help night and day.
6 But the widow who lives for pleasure is dead although she is still alive.
