Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 An aged person thou mayest not rebuke, but be entreating as a father; younger persons 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 aged women as mothers, younger ones as sisters -- in all purity; 2 older women as mothers, and younger women as sisters, with absolute purity.
3 honour widows who are really widows; 3 Give proper recognition to those widows who are really in need.
4 and if any widow have children or grandchildren, let them learn first to their own house to show piety, and to give back a recompense to the parents, for this is right 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 And she who is really a widow and desolate, hath hoped upon God, and doth remain in the supplications and in the prayers night and day, 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 and she who is given to luxury, living -- hath died; 6 But the widow who lives for pleasure is dead even while she lives.

8 and if any one for his own -- and especially for those of the household -- doth not provide, the faith he hath denied, and than an unbeliever he is worse. 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 A widow -- let her not be enrolled under sixty years of age, having been a wife of one husband, 9 No widow may be put on the list of widows unless she is over sixty, has been faithful to her husband,
10 in good works being testified to: if she brought up children, if she entertained strangers, if saints' feet she washed, if those in tribulation she relieved, if every good work she followed after; 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 and younger widows be refusing, for when they may revel against the Christ, they wish to marry, 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 having judgment, because the first faith they did cast away, 12 Thus they bring judgment on themselves, because they have broken their first pledge.
13 and at the same time also, they learn [to be] idle, going about the houses; and not only idle, but also tattlers and busybodies, speaking the things they ought not; 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 wish, therefore, younger ones to marry, to bear children, to be mistress of the house, to give no occasion to the opposer to reviling; 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 already certain did turn aside after the Adversary. 15 Some have in fact already turned away to follow Satan.
16 If any believing man or believing woman have widows, let them relieve them, and let not the assembly be burdened, that those really widows it may relieve. 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 well-leading elders of double honour let them be counted worthy, especially those labouring in word and teaching, 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 Writing saith, `An ox treading out thou shalt not muzzle,' and `Worthy [is] the workman of his reward.' 18 For the Scripture says, "Do not muzzle the ox while it is treading out the grain," and "The worker deserves his wages."
19 Against an elder an accusation receive not, except upon two or three witnesses. 19 Do not entertain an accusation against an elder unless it is brought by two or three witnesses.
20 Those sinning, reprove before all, that the others also may have fear; 20 Those who sin are to be rebuked publicly, so that the others may take warning.
21 I testify fully, before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, and the choice messengers, that these things thou mayest keep, without forejudging, doing nothing by partiality. 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 Be laying hands quickly on no one, nor be having fellowship with sins of others; be keeping thyself 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 no longer be drinking water, but a little wine be using, because of thy stomach and of thine often infirmities; 23 Stop drinking only water, and use a little wine because of your stomach and your frequent illnesses.
24 of certain men the sins are manifest beforehand, leading before to judgment, and certain also they follow 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 in like manner also the right works are manifest beforehand, and those that are otherwise are not able to be hid. 25 In the same way, good deeds are obvious, and even those that are not cannot be hidden.
