NASB — 1 Timothy 5 — KJV

Honor Widows

1 aDo not sharply rebuke an bolder man, but [rather] appeal to [him] as a father, [to] cthe younger men as brothers, 2 the older women as mothers, [and] the younger women as sisters, in all purity.

[1] aLv 19:32 bTit 2:2 cTit 2:6

3 ¶ Honor widows who are awidows indeed; 4 but if any widow has children or grandchildren, athey must first learn to practice piety in regard to their own family and to Imake some return to their parents; for this is bacceptable in the sight of God. 5 Now she who is a awidow indeed and who has been left alone, bhas fixed her hope on God and continues in centreaties and prayers night and day. 6 But she who agives herself to wanton pleasure is bdead even while she lives. 7 IaPrescribe these things as well, so that they may be above reproach. 8 But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has adenied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.

9 ¶ A widow is to be aput on the list only if she is not less than sixty years old, [having been] bthe wife of one man, 10 having a reputation for agood works; [and] if she has brought up children, if she has bshown hospitality to strangers, if she chas washed the Isaints’ feet, if she has dassisted those in distress, [and] if she has devoted herself to every good work. 11 But refuse [to put] younger widows [on the list], for when they feel asensual desires in disregard of Christ, they want to get married, 12 [thus] incurring condemnation, because they have set aside their previous Ipledge. 13 At the same time they also learn [to be] idle, as they go around from house to house; and not merely idle, but also agossips and bbusybodies, talking about cthings not proper [to mention]. 14 Therefore, I want younger [widows] to get amarried, bear children, bkeep house, [and] cgive the enemy no occasion for reproach; 15 for some ahave already turned aside to follow bSatan. 16 If any woman who is a believer ahas [dependent] widows, she must bassist them and the church must not be burdened, so that it may assist those who are cwidows indeed.

Concerning Elders

17aThe elders who brule well are to be considered worthy of double honor, especially those who cwork hard Iat preaching and teaching. 18 For the Scripture says, “aYOU SHALL NOT MUZZLE THE OX WHILE HE IS THRESHING,” and “bThe laborer is worthy of his wages.” 19 Do not receive an accusation against an aelder except on the basis of btwo or three witnesses. 20 Those who continue in sin, arebuke in the presence of all, bso that the rest also will be fearful [of sinning]. 21 aI solemnly charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus and of [His] chosen angels, to maintain these [principles] without bias, doing nothing in a [spirit of] partiality. 22 aDo not lay hands upon anyone [too] hastily and Ithereby share b[responsibility for] the sins of others; keep yourself IIfree from sin.

24 ¶ The sins of some men are quite evident, going before them to judgment; for others, their [sins] afollow after. 25 Likewise also, deeds that are good are quite evident, and athose which are otherwise cannot be concealed.

Rules to be observed in reproving.

1 ¶ Rebuke not an elder, but intreat [him] as a father; [and] the younger men as brethren; 2 The elder women as mothers; the younger as sisters, with all purity.

Of widows.

3 Honour widows that are widows indeed. 4 But if any widow have children or nephews, let them learn first to shew piety at home, and to requite their parents: for that is good and acceptable before God. 5 Now she that is a widow indeed, and desolate, trusteth in God, and continueth in supplications and prayers night and day. 6 But she that liveth in pleasure is dead while she liveth. 7 And these things give in charge, that they may be blameless. 8 But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel. 9 Let not a widow be taken into the number under threescore years old, having been the wife of one man, 10 Well reported of for good works; if she have brought up children, if she have lodged strangers, if she have washed the saints' feet, if she have relieved the afflicted, if she have diligently followed every good work. 11 But the younger widows refuse: for when they have begun to wax wanton against Christ, they will marry; 12 Having damnation, because they have cast off their first faith. 13 And withal they learn [to be] idle, wandering about from house to house; and not only idle, but tattlers also and busybodies, speaking things which they ought not. 14 I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully. 15 For some are already turned aside after Satan. 16 If any man or woman that believeth have widows, let them relieve them, and let not the church be charged; that it may relieve them that are widows indeed.

Of elders.

17 Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine. 18 For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer [is] worthy of his reward. 19 Against an elder receive not an accusation, but before two or three witnesses. 20 Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear. 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. 22 Lay hands suddenly on no man, neither be partaker of other men's sins: keep thyself pure.
