Tools specific to 1Ti 5:1

Take care of[fn] any widow who has no one else to care for her.

Tools specific to 1Ti 5:4

Unchecked Copy Box 1Ti 5:4

But if she has children or grandchildren, their first responsibility is to show godliness at home and repay their parents by taking care of them. This is something that pleases God.

Tools specific to 1Ti 5:5

Unchecked Copy Box 1Ti 5:6

But the widow who lives only for pleasure is spiritually dead even while she lives.

Tools specific to 1Ti 5:7

Unchecked Copy Box 1Ti 5:7

Give these instructions to the church so that no one will be open to criticism.

Tools specific to 1Ti 5:8

But those who won’t care for their relatives, especially those in their own household, have denied the true faith. Such people are worse than unbelievers.

Tools specific to 1Ti 5:9

A widow who is put on the list for support must be a woman who is at least sixty years old and was faithful to her husband.[fn]

Tools specific to 1Ti 5:10

Unchecked Copy Box 1Ti 5:10

She must be well respected by everyone because of the good she has done. Has she brought up her children well? Has she been kind to strangers and served other believers humbly?[fn] Has she helped those who are in trouble? Has she always been ready to do good?

Tools specific to 1Ti 5:11

Unchecked Copy Box 1Ti 5:11

The younger widows should not be on the list, because their physical desires will overpower their devotion to Christ and they will want to remarry.

Unchecked Copy Box 1Ti 5:12

Then they would be guilty of breaking their previous pledge.

Tools specific to 1Ti 5:13

Unchecked Copy Box 1Ti 5:13

Tools specific to 1Ti 5:14

Unchecked Copy Box 1Ti 5:14

So I advise these younger widows to marry again, have children, and take care of their own homes. Then the enemy will not be able to say anything against them.

Tools specific to 1Ti 5:15

Unchecked Copy Box 1Ti 5:15

For I am afraid that some of them have already gone astray and now follow Satan.

Tools specific to 1Ti 5:16

Unchecked Copy Box 1Ti 5:16

If a woman who is a believer has relatives who are widows, she must take care of them and not put the responsibility on the church. Then the church can care for the widows who are truly alone.

Tools specific to 1Ti 5:17

Unchecked Copy Box 1Ti 5:17

Elders who do their work well should be respected and paid well,[fn] especially those who work hard at both preaching and teaching.

Tools specific to 1Ti 5:18

Tools specific to 1Ti 5:22
