Wives, in the same way, - dignified, not given to intrigue, sober, faithful in all things.
It is needful, then, for, the overseer, to be irreproachable, a husband, of one wife, sober, of sound mind, orderly, hospitable, apt in teaching,
without natural affection, accepting no truce, given to intrigue, without self-control, uncivilized, unfriendly to good men,
A woman that is unchaste or dishonoured, shall they not take, And a woman divorced from her husband, shall they not take, - For holy, he is unto his God.
But, he, shall take a woman in her virginity:
Hath not carried slander on his tongue, hath not done his friend a wrong, nor, a reproach, taken up against his neighbour;
Thou wouldst sit down - Against thine own brother, wouldst thou speak, Against thine own mother's son, wouldst thou expose a fault: -
He that uttereth slander in secret against his friend, him, will I root out; One of lofty eyes, and of an ambitious heart, him shall I not be able to endure.
He that concealeth hatred, hath false lips, and he that sendeth forth slander, the same, is a dullard.
As the cold of snow in the day of harvest, is a faithful messenger to them who send him, - when, the life of his masters, he restoreth.
Every one, of his neighbour, beware ye, And in no brother, may ye trust, - For, every brother, supplanteth! And every neighbour, as a tale-bearer, goeth about;
Neither widow nor divorced woman, shall they take to them to wife, - But, virgins of the seed of the house of Israel, Or a widow who shall be the widow of a priest shall they take.
Then, Jesus was led up into the wilderness, by the Spirit, to be tempted by the adversary;
It came to pass, in the days of Herod, king of Judaea, that there was a certain priest, by name Zachariah, of the daily course of Abia; and that he had a wife of the daughters of Aaron, and, her name, was Elizabeth.
Jesus answered them - Did not, I, make choice, of you, the twelve? And yet, from among you, one, is, an adversary.
Hence, then, let us not be sleeping, as the rest, but let us watch and be sober: -
Grateful, am I unto him that empowered me, Christ Jesus our Lord, in that, faithful, he accounted me, putting me into ministry, -
They, however, that have believing masters, let them not despise them, because they are, brethren but, the more, be doing them service, because, believing and beloved, are they who, from the good workmanship, receive advantage. These things, be teaching, and exhorting: -
But, thou, - be sober in all things, suffer hardship, do, the work, of an evangelist, thy ministry, completely fulfill;
To be defaming, no one, to be, averse to strife, considerate, shewing, all, meekness unto all men.
Be sober! be watchful! Your slanderous adversary, as a roaring lion, is walking about - seeking to devour:
And the great dragon was cast out, - the ancient serpent, he that is called Adversary and the Satan, that deceiveth the whole habitable world, - he was cast to the earth, and his messengers, with him, were cast.
