Treatment of Church Members
1 Do not rebuke an older man, but exhort him as a father, younger men as brothers,
2 older women as mothers, younger women as sisters, with all purity.

Honor True Widows
3 Honor widows who are really widows.
4 But if any widow has children or grandchildren, let them first learn to show piety at home and ato repay their parents; for this is 1good and acceptable before God.
5 Now she who is really a widow, and left alone, trusts in God and continues in supplications and prayers anight and day.
6 But she who lives in 1pleasure is dead while she lives.
7 And these things command, that they may be blameless.
8 But if anyone does not provide for his own, aand especially for those of his household, bhe has denied the faith cand is worse than an unbeliever.
9 Do not let a widow under sixty years old be taken into the number, and not unless she has been the wife of one man,
10 well reported for good works: if she has brought up children, if she has lodged strangers, if she has washed the saints’ feet, if she has relieved the afflicted, if she has diligently followed every good work.
11 But 1refuse the younger widows; for when they have begun to grow wanton against Christ, they desire to marry,
12 having condemnation because they have cast off their first 1faith.
13 And besides they learn to be idle, wandering about from house to house, and not only idle but also gossips and busybodies, saying things which they ought not.
14 Therefore I desire that the younger widows marry, bear children, manage the house, give no opportunity to the adversary to speak reproachfully.
15 For some have already turned aside after Satan.
16 If any believing 1man or woman has widows, let them 2relieve them, and do not let the church be burdened, that it may relieve those who are really widows.
Honor the Elders
17 Let the elders who rule well be counted worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in the word and doctrine.
18 For the Scripture says, a“You shall not muzzle an ox while it treads out the grain,” and, b“The laborer is worthy of his wages.”
19 Do not receive an accusation against an elder except afrom two or three witnesses.
20 Those who are sinning rebuke in the presence of all, that the rest also may fear.
21 I charge you before God and the Lord Jesus Christ and the 1elect
1 TIMOTHY 5:22
angels that you observe these things without aprejudice, doing nothing with partiality.
22 Do not lay hands on anyone hastily, nor ashare in other people’s sins; keep yourself pure.
23 No longer drink only water, but use a little wine for your stomach’s sake and your frequent 1infirmities.
24 Some men’s sins are aclearly evident, preceding them to judgment, but those of some men follow later.
25 Likewise, the good works of some are clearly evident, and those that are otherwise cannot be hidden.
1 Let as many abondservants as are under the yoke count their own masters worthy of all honor, so that the name of God and His doctrine may not be blasphemed.
2 And those who have believing masters, let them not despise them because they are brethren, but rather serve them because those who are benefited are believers and beloved. Teach and exhort these things.
Error and Greed
3 If anyone teaches otherwise and does not consent to awholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, band to the 1doctrine which accords with godliness,
4 he is proud, knowing nothing, but is obsessed with disputes and arguments over words, from which come envy, strife, reviling, evil suspicions,
5 1useless wranglings of men of corrupt minds and destitute of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain. 2From asuch withdraw yourself.
6 Now godliness with acontentment is great gain.
7 For we brought nothing into this world, 1and it is acertain we can carry nothing out.
8 And having food and clothing, with these we shall be acontent.
9 But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition.

10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
The Good Confession
11 But you, O man of God, flee these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness.
12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
13 I urge you in the sight of God who gives life to all things, and before Christ Jesus awho witnessed the good confession before Pontius Pilate,
14 that you keep this commandment without spot, blameless until our Lord Jesus Christ’s appearing,
15 which He will manifest in His own time, He who is the blessed and only 1Potentate, the King of kings and Lord of lords,
16 who alone has immortality, dwelling in aunapproachable light, bwhom no man has seen or can see, to whom be honor and everlasting power. Amen.
Instructions to the Rich
17 Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain ariches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things bto enjoy.
18 Let them do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to give, willing to share,
19 astoring up for themselves a good foundation for the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.
Guard the Faith
20 O Timothy! aGuard what was committed to your trust, bavoiding the profane and 1idle babblings and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge—
21 by professing it some have strayed concerning the faith. Grace be with you. Amen.
Joy in the Salvation of the LORD
To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.
1 THE king shall have joy in Your strength, O LORD; And in Your salvation how greatly shall he rejoice!
2 You have given him his heart’s desire, And have not withheld the arequest of his lips. Selah
3 For You meet him with the blessings of goodness; You set a crown of pure gold upon his head.
4 aHe asked life from You, and You gave it to him— Length of days forever and ever.
5 His glory is great in Your salvation; Honor and majesty You have placed upon him.
6 For You have made him most blessed forever; aYou have made him 1exceedingly glad with Your presence.

9 You shall make them as a fiery oven in the time of Your anger; The LORD shall them up in His wrath, And the fire shall devour them.
10 Their offspring You shall destroy from the earth, And their 1descendants from among the sons of men.
11 For they intended evil against You; They devised a plot which they are not able to aperform.
12 Therefore You will make them turn their back; You will make ready Your arrows on Your string toward their faces.
13 Be exalted, O LORD, in Your own strength! We will sing and praise Your power.
