1 Timothy 5
Rules to be observed in reproving.
1 Timothy 5:1 An aged person thou mayest not rebuke, but be entreating as a father; younger persons as brethren; 1 Timothy 5:2 aged women as mothers, younger ones as sistersin all purity;
1 Timothy 5:3 honour widows who are really widows; 1 Timothy 5:4 and if any widow have children or grandchildren, let them learn first to their own house to show piety, and to give back a recompense to the parents, for this is right and acceptable before God. 1 Timothy 5:5 And she who is really a widow and desolate, hath hoped upon God, and doth remain in the supplications and in the prayers night and day, 1 Timothy 5:6 and she who is given to luxury, livinghath died; 1 Timothy 5:7 and these things charge, that they may be blameless; 1 Timothy 5:8 and if any one for his ownand especially for those of the householddoth not provide, the faith he hath denied, and than an unbeliever he is worse. 1 Timothy 5:9 A widowlet her not be enrolled under sixty years of age, having been a wife of one husband, 1 Timothy 5:10 in good works being testified to: if she brought up children, if she entertained strangers, if saints' feet she washed, if those in tribulation she relieved, if every good work she followed after; 1 Timothy 5:11 and younger widows be refusing, for when they may revel against the Christ, they wish to marry, 1 Timothy 5:12 having judgment, because the first faith they did cast away, 1 Timothy 5:13 and at the same time also, they learn [to be] idle, going about the houses; and not only idle, but also tattlers and busybodies, speaking the things they ought not; 1 Timothy 5:14 I wish, therefore, younger ones to marry, to bear children, to be mistress of the house, to give no occasion to the opposer to reviling; 1 Timothy 5:15 for already certain did turn aside after the Adversary. 1 Timothy 5:16 If any believing man or believing woman have widows, let them relieve them, and let not the assembly be burdened, that those really widows it may relieve.
1 Timothy 5:17 The well-leading elders of double honour let them be counted worthy, especially those labouring in word and teaching, 1 Timothy 5:18 for the Writing saith, 'An ox treading out thou shalt not muzzle,' and 'Worthy [is] the workman of his reward.' 1 Timothy 5:19 Against an elder an accusation receive not, except upon two or three witnesses. 1 Timothy 5:20 Those sinning, reprove before all, that the others also may have fear; 1 Timothy 5:21 I testify fully, before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, and the choice messengers, that these things thou mayest keep, without forejudging, doing nothing by partiality. 1 Timothy 5:22 Be laying hands quickly on no one, nor be having fellowship with sins of others; be keeping thyself pure;
A precept for Timothy's health.
1 Timothy 5:23 no longer be drinking water, but a little wine be using, because of thy stomach and of thine often infirmities;
Some men's sins go before unto judgment, and some men's do follow after.
1 Timothy 5:24 of certain men the sins are manifest beforehand, leading before to judgment, and certain also they follow after; 1 Timothy 5:25 in like manner also the right works are manifest beforehand, and those that are otherwise are not able to be hid.
