Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 3:1 - Stedfast is the word: If any one the oversight doth long for, a right work he desireth;
Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 3:2 - it behoveth, therefore, the overseer to be blameless, of one wife a husband, vigilant, sober, decent, a friend of strangers, apt to teach,
Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 3:3 - not given to wine, not a striker, not given to filthy lucre, but gentle, not contentious, not a lover of money,
Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 3:4 - his own house leading well, having children in subjection with all gravity,
Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 3:5 - (and if any one his own house how to lead hath not known, how an assembly of God shall he take care of?)
Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 3:6 - not a new convert, lest having been puffed up he may fall to a judgment of the devil;
Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 3:7 - and it behoveth him also to have a good testimony from those without, that he may not fall into reproach and a snare of the devil.
Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 3:8 - Ministrants -- in like manner grave, not double-tongued, not given to much wine, not given to filthy lucre,
Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 3:9 - having the secret of the faith in a pure conscience,
Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 3:10 - and let these also first be proved, then let them minister, being unblameable.
Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 3:11 - Women -- in like manner grave, not false accusers, vigilant, faithful in all things.
Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 3:12 - Ministrants -- let them be of one wife husbands; the children leading well, and their own houses,
Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 3:13 - for those who did minister well a good step to themselves do acquire, and much boldness in faith that is in Christ Jesus.
Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 3:14 - These things I write to thee, hoping to come unto thee soon,
Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 3:15 - and if I delay, that thou mayest know how it behoveth thee to conduct thyself in the house of God, which is an assembly of the living God -- a pillar and foundation of the truth,
Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 3:16 - and, confessedly, great is the secret of piety -- God was manifested in flesh, declared righteous in spirit, seen by messengers, preached among nations, believed on in the world, taken up in glory!
