Honor Widows

1 1Do not sharply rebuke an 2older man, but rather appeal to him as a father, to 3the younger men as brothers, 2 the older women as mothers, and the younger women as sisters, in all purity. 3 Honor widows who are 4widows indeed; 4 but if any widow has children or grandchildren, 5they must first learn to practice piety in regard to their own family and to amake some return to their parents; for this is 6acceptable in the sight of God. 5 Now she who is a 7widow indeed and who has been left alone, 8has fixed her hope on God and continues in 9entreaties and prayers night and day. 6 But she who 10gives herself to wanton pleasure is 11dead even while she lives.
