Tyndale (TYN) New International Version (NIV)
1 Rebuke not an elder: but exhorte him as a father and the yonger me as brethren 1 Do not rebuke an older man harshly, but exhort him as if he were your father. Treat younger men as brothers,
2 the elder wemen as mothers ye yonger as sisters with all purenes. 2 older women as mothers, and younger women as sisters, with absolute purity.
3 Honoure widdowes which are true wyddowes. 3 Give proper recognition to those widows who are really in need.
4 Yf eny wyddowe have chyldren or neves let them learne fyrst to rule their awne houses godly and to recompence their elders. For that is good and acceptable before God. 4 But if a widow has children or grandchildren, these should learn first of all to put their religion into practice by caring for their own family and so repaying their parents and grandparents, for this is pleasing to God.
5 She that is a very wyddowe and frendlesse putteth her trust in god and continueth in supplicacion and prayer nyght and daye. 5 The widow who is really in need and left all alone puts her hope in God and continues night and day to pray and to ask God for help.
6 But she that liveth in pleasure is deed even yet alive. 6 But the widow who lives for pleasure is dead even while she lives.
7 And these thynges commaunde that they maye be without faut 7 Give the people these instructions, too, so that no one may be open to blame.
8 Yf ther be eny that provideth not for his awne and namly for them of his housholde the same denyeth the fayth and is worsse then an infydell. 8 If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for his immediate family, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.
9 Let no wyddowe be chosen vnder threscore yere olde and soche a one as was the wyfe of one man 9 No widow may be put on the list of widows unless she is over sixty, has been faithful to her husband,
10 and well reported of in good workes: yf she have noresshed children yf she have bene liberall to straugers yf she have wesshed the saynctes fete yf she have ministred vnto them which were in adversite yf she were continually geve vnto all maner good workes. 10 and is well known for her good deeds, such as bringing up children, showing hospitality, washing the feet of the saints, helping those in trouble and devoting herself to all kinds of good deeds.
11 The yonger widdowes refuse. For when they have begone to wexe wantone to the dishonoure of Christ then will they mary 11 As for younger widows, do not put them on such a list. For when their sensual desires overcome their dedication to Christ, they want to marry.
12 havynge damnacio because they have broke their fyrst fayth. 12 Thus they bring judgment on themselves, because they have broken their first pledge.
13 And also they learne to goo from housse to housse ydle ye not ydle only but also tryflynge and busybodyes speakynge thynges which are not comly. 13 Besides, they get into the habit of being idle and going about from house to house. And not only do they become idlers, but also gossips and busybodies, saying things they ought not to.
14 I will therfore that ye yonger weme mary and beare childre and gyde the housse and geve none occasio to ye adversary to speake evill 14 So I counsel younger widows to marry, to have children, to manage their homes and to give the enemy no opportunity for slander.
15 For many of them are all redy turned bake and are gone after Satan. 15 Some have in fact already turned away to follow Satan.
16 And yf eny man or woman that beleveth have widdowes let the minister vnto them and let not the congregacion be charged: that yt maye have sufficient for them that are widdowes in dede. 16 If any woman who is a believer has widows in her family, she should help them and not let the church be burdened with them, so that the church can help those widows who are really in need.
17 The elders yt rule wel are worthy of double honoure most specially they which laboure in ye worde and in teachinge. 17 The elders who direct the affairs of the church well are worthy of double honor, especially those whose work is preaching and teaching.
18 For the scripture sayth: Thou shalt not mousell the mouth of the oxe that treadeth out the corne. And the labourer is worthy of his rewarde. 18 For the Scripture says, "Do not muzzle the ox while it is treading out the grain," and "The worker deserves his wages."
19 Agaynst an elder receave none accusacion: but vnder two or thre witnesses. 19 Do not entertain an accusation against an elder unless it is brought by two or three witnesses.
20 Them that synne rebuke openly that other maye feare. 20 Those who sin are to be rebuked publicly, so that the others may take warning.
21 I testifie before god and the lorde Iesus Christ and the electe angels that thou observe these thynges with out hasty iudgement and do nothynge parcially. 21 I charge you, in the sight of God and Christ Jesus and the elect angels, to keep these instructions without partiality, and to do nothing out of favoritism.
22 Laye hondes sodely on no man nether be partaker of other mes synnes: kepe thy silfe pure. 22 Do not be hasty in the laying on of hands, and do not share in the sins of others. Keep yourself pure.
23 Drynke no lenger water but vse a lytell wyne for thy stommakes sake and thyne often diseases. 23 Stop drinking only water, and use a little wine because of your stomach and your frequent illnesses.
24 Some mennes synnes are open before honde and goo before vnto iudgement: some mennes synnes folowe after. 24 The sins of some men are obvious, reaching the place of judgment ahead of them; the sins of others trail behind them.
25 Lykwyse also good workes are manyfest before honde and they that are other wyse canot be hid. 25 In the same way, good deeds are obvious, and even those that are not cannot be hidden.
