First Timothy 5

5:1 Rebuke not an elder, but entreat [him] as a father; [and]
 the younger men as brethren;
5:2 The elder women as mothers; the younger as sisters, with all
5:3 Honor widows that are widows indeed.
5:4 But if any widow hath children or nephews, let them learn
 first to show piety at home, and to requite their parents: for
 that is good and acceptable before God.
5:5 Now she that is a widow indeed, and desolate, trusteth in
 God, and continueth in supplications and prayers night and day.
5:6 But she that liveth in pleasure, is dead while she liveth.
5:7 And these things give in charge, that they may be blameless.
5:8 But if any provideth not for his own, and especially for
 those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse
 than an infidel.
5:9 Let not a widow be taken into the number under sixty 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 lodged 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 the younger widows refuse: for when they have begun to
 grow wanton against Christ, they will marry;
5:12 Having damnation, because they have cast off their first
5:13 And at the same time they learn [to be] idle, wandering
 about from house to house, and not only idle, but tattlers
 also, and busy-bodies, speaking things which they ought not.
5:14 I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear
 children, guide the house, give no occasion to the adversary to
 speak reproachfully.
5:15 For some are already turned aside after Satan.
5:16 If any man or woman that believeth hath widows, let them
 relieve them, and let not the church be charged; that it may
 relieve them that are widows indeed.
5:17 Let the elders that rule well, be counted worthy of double
 honor, especially they who labor in the word and doctrine.
5:18 For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that
 treadeth out the corn. And, The laborer [is] worthy of his
5:19 Against an elder receive not an accusation, but before two
 or three witnesses.
5:20 Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.
5:21 I charge [thee] before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, and
 the elect angels, that thou observe these things without
 preferring one before another, doing nothing by partiality.
5:22 Impose hands hastily on no man, neither be partaker of
 other men's sins: keep thyself pure.
5:23 Drink no longer water, but use a little wine for thy
 stomach's sake, and thy frequent infirmities.
5:24 Some men's sins are open beforehand, going before to
 judgment: and some [men] they follow after.
5:25 Likewise also the good works [of some] are manifest
 beforehand; and they that are otherwise cannot be hid.
