Do not speak angrily to an older man, but plead with him as if he were your father. Treat younger men like brothers,
older women like mothers, and younger women like sisters. Always treat them in a pure way.
Take care of widows who are truly widows.
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.
The true widow, who is all alone, puts her hope in God and continues to pray night and day for God's help.
But the widow who uses her life to please herself is really dead while she is alive.
