5:1 Rebuke not an elder, but exhort him as a father; the younger men as brethren:
5:2 the elder women as mothers; the younger as sisters, in all purity.
5:3 Honor widows that are widows indeed.
5:6 But she that giveth herself to pleasure is dead while she liveth.
5:7 These things also command, that they may be without reproach.
5:8 But if any provideth not for his own, and specially his own household, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an unbeliever.
5:9 Let none be enrolled as a widow under threescore years old, [having been] the wife of one man,
5:10 well reported of for good works; if she hath brought up children, if she hath used hospitality to strangers, if she hath washed the saints` feet, if she hath relieved the afflicted, if she hath diligently followed every good work.
5:11 But younger widows refuse: for when they have waxed wanton against Christ, they desire to marry;
5:12 having condemnation, because they have rejected their first pledge.
5:13 And withal they learn also [to be] idle, going about from house to house; and not only idle, but tattlers also and busybodies, speaking things which they ought not.
5:15 for already some are turned aside after Satan.
5:16 If any woman that believeth hath widows, let her relieve them, and let not the church be burdened; that it mat relieve them that are widows indeed.
5:18 For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox when he treadeth out the corn. And, The laborer is worthy of his hire.
5:20 Them that sin reprove in the sight of all, that the rest also may be in fear.
5:21 I charge [thee] in the sight of God, and Christ Jesus, and the elect angels, that thou observe these things without prejudice, doing nothing by partiality.
5:22 Lay hands hastily on no man, neither be partaker of other men`s sins: keep thyself pure.
5:25 In like manner also there are good works that are evident; and such as are otherwise cannot be hid.
