1 Timothy 5:16-25 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
16 If any woman who is a believer 1has dependent widows, she must 2assist them and the church must not be burdened, so that it may assist those who are 3widows indeed.

Concerning Elders

17 4The elders who 5rule well are to be considered worthy of double honor, especially those who 6work hard aat preaching and teaching. 18 For the Scripture says, "7YOU SHALL NOT MUZZLE THE OX WHILE HE IS THRESHING," and "8The laborer is worthy of his wages." 19 Do not receive an accusation against an 9elder except on the basis of 10two or three witnesses. 20 Those who continue in sin, 11rebuke in the presence of all, 12so that the rest also will be fearful of sinning. 21 13I solemnly charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus and of His chosen angels, to maintain these principles without bias, doing nothing in a spirit of partiality. 22 14Do not lay hands upon anyone too hastily and bthereby share 15responsibility for the sins of others; keep yourself cfree from sin. 23 No longer drink water exclusively, but 16use a little wine for the sake of your stomach and your frequent ailments. 24 The sins of some men are quite evident, going before them to judgment; for others, their sins 17follow after. 25 Likewise also, deeds that are good are quite evident, and 18those which are otherwise cannot be concealed.
