Instructions About Widows

1 Do not rebuke an older man, but appeal to [him] as a father, younger men as brothers, 2 older women as mothers, younger women as sisters, with all purity. 3 Honor widows [who are] truly widows. 4 But if any widow has children or grandchildren, they must learn to show profound respect for their own household first, and to pay back recompense to their parents, for this is pleasing in the sight of God. 5 But the widow [who is one] truly, and is left alone, has put her hope in God and continues in her petitions and prayers night and day. 6 But the one who lives for sensual pleasure is dead [even though she]a lives.
