1 Timothy 5:3-5; 1 Timothy 5:9; 1 Timothy 5:11; 1 Timothy 5:16
Honour widows that are widows indeed.
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.
Now she that is a widow indeed, and desolate , trusteth in God, and continueth in supplications and prayers night and day.
Let not a widow be taken into the number under threescore years old, having been the wife of one man,
But the younger widows refuse : for when they have begun to wax wanton against Christ, they will marry ;
If any man or woman that believeth have widows, let them relieve them, and let not the church be charged ; that it may relieve them that are widows indeed.
