1 Timothy 5

TMB 1 Rebuke not an elder, but entreat him as a father, and the younger men as brethren, NIV 1 Do not rebuke an older man harshly, but exhort him as if he were your father. Treat younger men as brothers, TMB 2 the elder women as mothers, the younger as sisters, in all purity. NIV 2 older women as mothers, and younger women as sisters, with absolute purity. TMB 3 Honor widows who are truly widows. NIV 3 Give proper recognition to those widows who are really in need. TMB 4 But if any widow has children or grandchildren, let them learn first to show piety at home and to requite their parents, for that is good and acceptable before God. NIV 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. TMB 5 Now she that is indeed a widow, and desolate, trusteth in God and continueth in supplications and prayers night and day. NIV 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. TMB 6 But she that liveth in pleasure is dead while she liveth. NIV 6 But the widow who lives for pleasure is dead even while she lives. TMB 7 And these things charge them, that they may be blameless. NIV 7 Give the people these instructions, too, so that no one may be open to blame. TMB 8 But if any provide not for his own, and especially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith and is worse than an infidel. NIV 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. TMB 9 Let not a widow be taken into the number under three score years old, having been the wife of one man, NIV 9 No widow may be put on the list of widows unless she is over sixty, has been faithful to her husband, TMB 10 well reported of for good works: if she has brought up children, if she has lodged strangers, if she has washed the saints' feet, if she has relieved the afflicted, if she has diligently followed every good work. NIV 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. TMB 11 But the younger widows refuse, for when they have begun to wax wanton against Christ, they will marry, NIV 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. TMB 12 having damnation because they have cast off their first faith. NIV 12 Thus they bring judgment on themselves, because they have broken their first pledge. TMB 13 And besides they learn to be idle, wandering about from house to house; and not only idle, but tattlers also and busybodies, speaking things which they ought not. NIV 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. TMB 14 It is my will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give no occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully. NIV 14 So I counsel younger widows to marry, to have children, to manage their homes and to give the enemy no opportunity for slander. TMB 15 For some have already turned aside after Satan. NIV 15 Some have in fact already turned away to follow Satan. TMB 16 If any man or woman who believeth have widows, let them relieve them and let not the church be burdened, that it may assist those who are widows indeed. NIV 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. TMB 17 Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in the Word and doctrine. NIV 17 The elders who direct the affairs of the church well are worthy of double honor, especially those whose work is preaching and teaching. TMB 18 For the Scripture saith, "Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn," and, "The laborer is worthy of his reward." NIV 18 For the Scripture says, "Do not muzzle the ox while it is treading out the grain," and "The worker deserves his wages." TMB 19 Against an elder receive not an accusation, except before two or three witnesses. NIV 19 Do not entertain an accusation against an elder unless it is brought by two or three witnesses. TMB 20 Those who sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear. NIV 20 Those who sin are to be rebuked publicly, so that the others may take warning. TMB 21 I charge thee before God and the Lord Jesus Christ and the elect angels, that thou observe these things without preferring one before another, doing nothing by partiality. NIV 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. TMB 22 Lay hands hastily on no man, neither be partaker of other men's sins. Keep thyself pure. NIV 22 Do not be hasty in the laying on of hands, and do not share in the sins of others. Keep yourself pure. TMB 23 Drink no longer water, but use a little wine for thy stomach's sake and thy frequent infirmities. NIV 23 Stop drinking only water, and use a little wine because of your stomach and your frequent illnesses. TMB 24 Some men's sins are open beforehand, going on to judgment; and in some men they follow after. NIV 24 The sins of some men are obvious, reaching the place of judgment ahead of them; the sins of others trail behind them. TMB 25 Likewise also the good works of some are manifest beforehand, but they that are otherwise cannot be hid. NIV 25 In the same way, good deeds are obvious, and even those that are not cannot be hidden.
