1 Timothy 3

WYC 1 A faithful word [I shall say]. If any man desireth a bishopric [If any man desire a bishopric], he desireth a good work. NIV 1 Here is a trustworthy saying: Whoever aspires to be an overseer desires a noble task. WYC 2 Therefore it behooveth a bishop to be without reproof [Therefore it behooveth a bishop to be irreprehensible, or without reproof], the husband of one wife, sober, prudent, chaste, virtuous, holding hospitality, a teacher; NIV 2 Now the overseer is to be above reproach, faithful to his wife, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, WYC 3 not given much to wine, not a smiter, but temperate, not full of chiding, not covetous, [not given much to wine, not smiter, but temperate, or patient, not litigious, or full of strife, or chiding, not covetous,] NIV 3 not given to drunkenness, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. WYC 4 well-ruling his house, and have sons subject with all chastity [having sons subject with all chastity]; NIV 4 He must manage his own family well and see that his children obey him, and he must do so in a manner worthy of full respect. WYC 5 for if any man know not how to govern his house, how shall he have diligence of the church of God [how shall he have diligence, or keeping, of the church of God]? NIV 5 (If anyone does not know how to manage his own family, how can he take care of God’s church?) WYC 6 not new converted to the faith, lest he be borne up into pride, and fall into [the] doom of the devil. NIV 6 He must not be a recent convert, or he may become conceited and fall under the same judgment as the devil. WYC 7 For it behooveth him to have also good witnessing of them that be withoutforth, that he fall not into reproof, and into the snare of the devil. NIV 7 He must also have a good reputation with outsiders, so that he will not fall into disgrace and into the devil’s trap. WYC 8 Also it behooveth deacons to be chaste, not double-tongued, not given much to wine [not given to much wine], not following foul winning; NIV 8 In the same way, deacons are to be worthy of respect, sincere, not indulging in much wine, and not pursuing dishonest gain. WYC 9 that have the mystery of faith in clean conscience. [having the mystery of faith in clean conscience.] NIV 9 They must keep hold of the deep truths of the faith with a clear conscience. WYC 10 But be they proved first, and minister they so, having no crime. [And forsooth be they proved first, that they minister so, having no crime, or great sin.] NIV 10 They must first be tested; and then if there is nothing against them, let them serve as deacons. WYC 11 Also it behooveth women to be chaste, not backbiting, sober, faithful in all things. NIV 11 In the same way, the women are to be worthy of respect, not malicious talkers but temperate and trustworthy in everything. WYC 12 Deacons be [they] husbands of one wife; which govern well their sons and their houses. NIV 12 A deacon must be faithful to his wife and must manage his children and his household well. WYC 13 For they that [shall] minister well, shall get a good degree to themselves, and much trust in the faith, that is in Christ Jesus. NIV 13 Those who have served well gain an excellent standing and great assurance in their faith in Christ Jesus. WYC 14 Son Timothy, I write to thee these things, hoping that I shall come soon to thee [hoping me to come soon to thee]; NIV 14 Although I hope to come to you soon, I am writing you these instructions so that, WYC 15 but if I tarry, that thou knowest, how it behooveth thee to live in the house of God, that is the church of living God, a pillar and firmness of truth. NIV 15 if I am delayed, you will know how people ought to conduct themselves in God’s household, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of the truth. WYC 16 And openly it is a great sacrament of piety, that thing that was showed in flesh, it is justified in Spirit [And openly it is a great sacrament of piety, that that is showed in flesh, is justified in Spirit], it appeared to angels, it is preached to heathen men, it is believed in the world, it is taken up into glory. NIV 16 Beyond all question, the mystery from which true godliness springs is great: He appeared in the flesh, was vindicated by the Spirit,was seen by angels, was preached among the nations, was believed on in the world, was taken up in glory.
