1 Never speak sharply to a man older than yourself, but appeal to him as you would to your own father; treat younger men as brothers,
Lev 19:32  1Pet 5:5-6  1Tim 5:19-20  Titus 2:2  Titus 2:6  1Pet 5:1  1Tim 5:17 

2 older women as mothers and young women as sisters with all propriety.
1Tim 4:12  John 19:26-27  Matt 12:50  Phil 4:8  1Tim 5:3  2Tim 2:22  1Thess 5:22 

3 Be considerate to widows -- if they really are widowed.
Acts 6:1  Acts 9:39  Deut 10:18  Deut 14:29  Deut 16:11  Deut 16:14  Deut 27:19 

4 If a widow has children or grandchildren, they are to learn first of all to do their duty to their own families and repay their debt to their parents, because this is what pleases God.
Matt 15:4-6  1Tim 2:3  Gen 45:10-11  John 19:26-27  Mark 7:11-13  Ruth 2:2  Ruth 2:18 

5 But a woman who is really widowed and left on her own has set her hope on God and perseveres night and day in petitions and prayer.
1Tim 5:3  1Cor 7:32  Luke 2:37  1Pet 3:5  1Tim 5:16  Luke 18:1  1Cor 7:34 

6 The one who thinks only of pleasure is already dead while she is still alive:
Jas 5:5  Rev 3:1  Luke 15:24  Rev 18:7  Eph 5:14  1Sam 15:32  1Sam 25:6 

7 instruct them in this, too, so that their lives may be blameless.
1Tim 4:11  Titus 2:15  1Tim 1:3  1Tim 6:17  2Tim 4:1  Titus 1:13 

8 Anyone who does not look after his own relations, especially if they are living with him, has rejected the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.
2Cor 12:14  Luke 11:11-13  Gal 6:10  Isa 58:7  Matt 7:11  Titus 1:16  2Tim 3:5 

9 Enrolment as a widow is permissible only for a woman at least sixty years old who has had only one husband.
1Tim 3:2  1Cor 7:10-11  1Cor 7:39-40  1Tim 3:12  1Tim 5:3-4  1Tim 5:11  1Tim 5:14 

10 She must be a woman known for her good works -- whether she has brought up her children, been hospitable to strangers and washed the feet of God's holy people, helped people in hardship or been active in all kinds of good work.
Titus 3:8  1Tim 6:18  Acts 9:36  1Pet 2:12  Matt 5:16  Luke 7:44  Rom 12:13 

11 Do not accept young widows because if their natural desires distract them from Christ, they want to marry again,
1Tim 5:14  1Cor 7:39-40  1Tim 4:3  1Tim 5:9  2Pet 2:18  Deut 32:15  Hos 13:6 

12 and then people condemn them for being unfaithful to their original promise.
1Pet 4:17  Gal 1:6  Jas 3:1  Rev 2:4-5  1Cor 11:34 

13 Besides, they learn how to be idle and go round from house to house; and then, not merely idle, they learn to be gossips and meddlers in other people's affairs and to say what should remain unsaid.
Prov 20:19  Prov 31:27  2Thess 3:6-11  Titus 1:11  1Pet 4:15  3John 1:10  Acts 20:20 

14 I think it is best for young widows to marry again and have children and a household to look after, and not give the enemy any chance to raise a scandal about them;
Titus 2:5  1Tim 6:1  Titus 2:8  1Cor 7:8-9  1Tim 4:3  Dan 6:4  1Pet 4:14-15 

15 there are already some who have turned aside to follow Satan.
2Pet 2:2  2Pet 2:20-22  Jude 1:4-5  1Tim 1:20  2Pet 3:16  2Tim 1:15  2Tim 2:18 

16 If a woman believer has widowed relatives, she should support them and not make the Church bear the expense but enable it to support those who are really widowed.
1Tim 5:3-5  1Tim 5:8 

17 Elders who do their work well while they are in charge earn double reward, especially those who work hard at preaching and teaching.
Heb 13:17  1Thess 5:12-13  Gal 6:6  Rom 12:8  Heb 13:7  Luke 10:7  Phil 2:29 

18 As scripture says: You must not muzzle an ox when it is treading out the corn; and again: The worker deserves his wages.
Deut 25:4  1Cor 9:7-10  Luke 10:7  Deut 24:14-15  1Cor 9:14  Lev 19:13  Matt 10:10 

19 Never accept any accusation brought against an elder unless it is supported by two or three witnesses.
Deut 19:15  Matt 18:16  2Cor 13:1  Deut 17:6  Titus 1:6  Acts 11:30  Acts 24:2-13 

20 If anyone is at fault, reprimand him publicly, as a warning to the rest.
Deut 13:11  2Tim 4:2  Titus 1:13  1Tim 1:20  Acts 5:11  Deut 17:13  Deut 19:20 

21 Before God, and before Jesus Christ and the angels he has chosen, I charge you to keep these rules impartially and never to be influenced by favouritism.
1Tim 6:13  2Tim 4:1  2Pet 2:4  2Tim 2:14  Jude 1:6  2Cor 5:16  Jas 2:1-4 

22 Do not be too quick to lay hands on anyone, and never make yourself an accomplice in anybody else's sin; keep yourself pure.
1Tim 3:10  Eph 5:11  1Tim 3:6  1Tim 4:14  2John 1:11  Acts 6:6  1Tim 4:12 

23 You should give up drinking only water and have a little wine for the sake of your digestion and the frequent bouts of illness that you have.
1Tim 3:8  Ps 104:15  Prov 31:4-7  1Tim 3:3  Eph 5:18  Titus 1:7  Titus 2:3 

24 The faults of some people are obvious long before they come to the reckoning, while others have faults that are not discovered until later.
2Tim 4:10  Acts 8:18  2Pet 2:20-21  Acts 1:16-20  Acts 5:1-11  Gal 5:19-21  Jer 2:34 

25 Similarly, the good that people do can be obvious; but even when it is not, it cannot remain hidden.
Luke 11:33  Prov 10:9  1Tim 3:7  Acts 9:36  Acts 10:22  Acts 16:1-3  Acts 22:12
