1 Timothy 3:8-13 NRS

8 Deacons likewise must be serious, not double-tongued, not indulging in much wine, not greedy for money;
9 they must hold fast to the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience.
10 And let them first be tested; then, if they prove themselves blameless, let them serve as deacons.
11 Women a likewise must be serious, not slanderers, but temperate, faithful in all things.
