Do not rebuke an older man but exhort him as you would a father; treat younger men like brothers,
older women like mothers, younger women like sisters, in all purity.
Honor widows who are real widows.
If a widow has children or grandchildren, let them first learn their religious duty to their own family and make some return to their parents; for this is acceptable in the sight of God.
She who is a real widow, and is left all alone, has set her hope on God and continues in supplications and prayers night and day;
whereas she who is self-indulgent is dead even while she lives.
