1 Timothy 5

WNT 1 Never administer a sharp reprimand to a man older than yourself; but entreat him as if he were your father, and the younger men as brothers; NIV 1 Do not rebuke an older man harshly, but exhort him as if he were your father. Treat younger men as brothers, WNT 2 the elder women too as mothers, and the younger women as sisters, with perfect modesty. NIV 2 older women as mothers, and younger women as sisters, with absolute purity. WNT 3 Honour widows who are really in need. NIV 3 Give proper recognition to those widows who are really in need. WNT 4 But if a widow has children or grandchildren, let these learn first to show piety towards their own homes and to prove their gratitude to their parents; for this is well pleasing in the sight of 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. WNT 5 A widow who is really in need, friendless and desolate, has her hopes fixed on God, and continues at her 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. WNT 6 but a pleasure-loving widow is dead even while still alive. NIV 6 But the widow who lives for pleasure is dead even while she lives.

WNT 8 But if a man makes no provision for those dependent on him, and especially for his own family, he has disowned the faith and is behaving worse than an unbeliever. 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. WNT 9 No widow is to be put on the roll who is under sixty years of age. NIV 9 No widow may be put on the list of widows unless she is over sixty, has been faithful to her husband, WNT 10 She must have been true to her one husband, and well reported of for good deeds, as having brought up children, received strangers hospitably, washed the feet of God's people, given relief to the distressed, and devoted herself to good works of every kind. 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. WNT 11 But the younger widows you must not enrol; for as soon as they begin to chafe against the yoke of Christ, they want to 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. WNT 12 and they incur disapproval for having broken their original vow. NIV 12 Thus they bring judgment on themselves, because they have broken their first pledge. WNT 13 And at the same time they also learn to be idle as they go round from house to house; and they are not only idle, but are gossips also and busybodies, speaking of things that ought not to be spoken of. 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. WNT 14 I would therefore have the younger women marry, bear children, rule in domestic matters, and furnish the Adversary with no excuse for slander. 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. WNT 15 For already some of them have gone astray, following Satan. NIV 15 Some have in fact already turned away to follow Satan. WNT 16 If a believing woman has widows dependent on her, she should relieve their wants, and save the Church from being burdened--so that the Church may relieve the widows who are really in need. 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. WNT 17 Let the Elders who perform their duties wisely and well be held worthy of double honour, especially those who labour in preaching and teaching. 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. WNT 18 For the Scripture says, "You are not to muzzle the ox while it is treading out the grain;" and the workman deserves his pay. NIV 18 For the Scripture says, "Do not muzzle the ox while it is treading out the grain," and "The worker deserves his wages." WNT 19 Never entertain an accusation against an Elder except on the evidence of two of three witnesses. NIV 19 Do not entertain an accusation against an elder unless it is brought by two or three witnesses. WNT 20 Those who persist in sin reprove in the presence of all, so that it may also be a warning to the rest. NIV 20 Those who sin are to be rebuked publicly, so that the others may take warning. WNT 21 I solemnly call upon you, in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus and of the elect angels, to carry out these instructions of mine without prejudice, and to do nothing from 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. WNT 22 Do not ordain any one hastily; and do not be a partaker in the sins of others; keep *yourself* 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. WNT 23 (No longer be a water-drinker; but take a little wine for the sake of your digestion and your frequent ailments.) NIV 23 Stop drinking only water, and use a little wine because of your stomach and your frequent illnesses. WNT 24 The sins of some men are evident to the world, leading the way to your estimate of their characters, but the sins of others lag behind. NIV 24 The sins of some men are obvious, reaching the place of judgment ahead of them; the sins of others trail behind them. WNT 25 So also the right actions of some are evident to the world, and those that are not cannot remain for ever out of sight. NIV 25 In the same way, good deeds are obvious, and even those that are not cannot be hidden.
