Blame thou not an elder man, but beseech [him] as a father, young men as brethren;
old women as mothers, young women as sisters, in all chastity.
Honour thou widows [Honour the widows], that be very widows.
But if any widow hath children of sons [Forsooth if any widow hath sons, or cousins], learn she first to govern her house, and requite to father and mother; for this thing is accepted before God.
And she that is a widow verily, and desolate, hope [she] into God, and be busy in beseechings and prayers night and day.
For she that is living in delights, is dead [in soul].
