1st Timothy Chapter 5 Young's Literal Translation

1st Timothy 5:1

An aged person thou mayest not rebuke, but be entreating as a father; younger persons as brethren;

1st Timothy 5:2

aged women as mothers, younger ones as sisters -- in all purity;

1st Timothy 5:3

honour widows who are really widows;

1st Timothy 5:4

and if any widow have children or grandchildren, let them learn first to their own house to show piety, and to give back a recompense to the parents, for this is right and acceptable before God.

1st Timothy 5:5

And she who is really a widow and desolate, hath hoped upon God, and doth remain in the supplications and in the prayers night and day,

1st Timothy 5:6

and she who is given to luxury, living -- hath died;

1st Timothy 5:7

and these things charge, that they may be blameless;

1st Timothy 5:8

and if any one for his own -- and especially for those of the household -- doth not provide, the faith he hath denied, and than an unbeliever he is worse.

1st Timothy 5:9

A widow -- let her not be enrolled under sixty years of age, having been a wife of one husband,

1st Timothy 5:10

in good works being testified to: if she brought up children, if she entertained strangers, if saints' feet she washed, if those in tribulation she relieved, if every good work she followed after;

1st Timothy 5:11

and younger widows be refusing, for when they may revel against the Christ, they wish to marry,

1st Timothy 5:12

having judgment, because the first faith they did cast away,

1st Timothy 5:13

and at the same time also, they learn `to be' idle, going about the houses; and not only idle, but also tattlers and busybodies, speaking the things they ought not;

1st Timothy 5:14

I wish, therefore, younger ones to marry, to bear children, to be mistress of the house, to give no occasion to the opposer to reviling;

1st Timothy 5:15

for already certain did turn aside after the Adversary.

1st Timothy 5:16

If any believing man or believing woman have widows, let them relieve them, and let not the assembly be burdened, that those really widows it may relieve.

1st Timothy 5:17

The well-leading elders of double honour let them be counted worthy, especially those labouring in word and teaching,

1st Timothy 5:18

for the Writing saith, `An ox treading out thou shalt not muzzle,' and `Worthy `is' the workman of his reward.'

1st Timothy 5:19

Against an elder an accusation receive not, except upon two or three witnesses.

1st Timothy 5:20

Those sinning, reprove before all, that the others also may have fear;

1st Timothy 5:21

I testify fully, before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, and the choice messengers, that these things thou mayest keep, without forejudging, doing nothing by partiality.

1st Timothy 5:22

Be laying hands quickly on no one, nor be having fellowship with sins of others; be keeping thyself pure;

1st Timothy 5:23

no longer be drinking water, but a little wine be using, because of thy stomach and of thine often infirmities;

1st Timothy 5:24

of certain men the sins are manifest beforehand, leading before to judgment, and certain also they follow after;

1st Timothy 5:25

in like manner also the right works are manifest beforehand, and those that are otherwise are not able to be hid.
