1 Timothy 3:10-16 KJV

10 And let these also first be proved ; then let them use the office of a deacon , being found blameless.
11 Even so must their wives be grave, not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things.
13 For they that have used the office of a deacon well purchase to themselves a good degree, and great boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus.
14 These things write I unto thee, hoping to come unto thee shortly:
15 But if I tarry long , that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and grounda of the truth.
