1 Timothy 5:3-8

[Always] treat with great consideration and give aid to those who are truly widowed (solitary and without support).

Now [a woman] who is a real widow and is left entirely alone and desolate has fixed her hope on God and perseveres in supplications and prayers night and day,read more.
Whereas she who lives in pleasure and self-gratification [giving herself up to luxury and self-indulgence] is dead even while she [still] lives.
