An ancient man rebuke not, but entreat him as a father: young men, as brethren:
Old women, as mothers: young women, as sisters, in all chastity.
Honour widows that are widows indeed.
But if any widow have children or grandchildren, let her learn first to govern her own house and to make a return of duty to her parents; for this is acceptable before God.
But she that is a widow indeed, and desolate, let her trust in God and continue in supplications and prayers night and day.
For she that liveth in pleasures is dead while she is living.
