1 Timothy 5:1-6 NCV

1 Do not speak angrily to an older man, but plead with him as if he were your father. Treat younger men like brothers,
2 older women like mothers, and younger women like sisters. Always treat them in a pure way.
3 Take care of widows who are truly widows.
4 But if a widow has children or grandchildren, let them first learn to do their duty to their own family and to repay their parents or grandparents. That pleases God.
5 The true widow, who is all alone, puts her hope in God and continues to pray night and day for God's help.
6 But the widow who uses her life to please herself is really dead while she is alive.
