1 Timothy 1:2; 1 Timothy 1:18; 1 Timothy 3:4; 1 Timothy 3:12; 1 Timothy 5:4

2 Unto Timothy, my own son in the faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord.
18 This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare;
4 One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;
12 Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well.
4 But if any widow have children or nephews, let them learn first to shew piety at home , and to requite their parents: for that is good and acceptable before God.
