Do not rebuke an older man, but exhort him as a father, younger men as brothers,
older women as mothers, younger as sisters, with all purity.
Honor widows who are really widows.
But if any widow has children or grandchildren, let them first learn to show piety at home and to repay their parents; for this is good and a acceptable before God.
Now she who is really a widow, and left alone, trusts in God and continues in supplications and prayers night and day.
But she who lives in pleasure is dead while she lives.
And these things command, that they may be blameless.
