1 Timothy 5:1-2; 1 Timothy 5:17; 1 Timothy 5:19

1 Do not sharply rebuke an older man, but rather appeal to him as a father, to the younger men as brothers, 2 the older women as mothers, and the younger women as sisters, in all purity.
17 The elders who rule well are to be considered worthy of double honor, especially those who work hard at preaching and teaching.
19 Do not receive an accusation against an elder except on the basis of two or three witnesses.
