  1 G4103 This is a true G3056 saying G1536 , If a man G3713 desire [G5731]   G1984 the office of a bishop G1937 , he desireth [G5719]   G2570 a good G2041 work.
  2 G1985 A bishop G3767 then G1163 must [G5748]   G1511 be [G5750]   G423 blameless G435 , the husband G3391 of one G1135 wife G3524 , vigilant G4998 , sober G2887 , of good behaviour G5382 , given to hospitality G1317 , apt to teach;
  3 G3361 Not G3943 given to wine G3361 , no G4131 striker G3361 , not G146 greedy of filthy lucre G235 ; but G1933 patient G269 , not a brawler G866 , not covetous;
  4 G4291 One that ruleth [G5734]   G2573 well G2398 his own G3624 house G2192 , having [G5723]   G5043 his children G1722 in G5292 subjection G3326 with G3956 all G4587 gravity;
  5 G1161 (For G1536 if a man G1492 know G3756 not G1492 how [G5758]   G4291 to rule [G5629]   G2398 his own G3624 house G4459 , how G1959 shall he take care of [G5695]   G1577 the church G2316 of God?)
  6 G3361 Not G3504 a novice G3363 , lest G5187 being lifted up with pride [G5685]   G1706 he fall [G5632]   G1519 into G2917 the condemnation G1228 of the devil.
  7 G1161 Moreover G2532   G846 he G1163 must [G5748]   G2192 have [G5721]   G2570 a good G3141 report G575 of G1855 them which are without G3363 ; lest G1706 he fall [G5632]   G1519 into G3680 reproach G2532 and G3803 the snare G1228 of the devil.
  8 G5615 Likewise G1249 must the deacons G4586 be grave G3361 , not G1351 doubletongued G3361 , not G4337 given [G5723]   G4183 to much G3631 wine G3361 , not G146 greedy of filthy lucre;
  9 G2192 Holding [G5723]   G3466 the mystery G4102 of the faith G1722 in G2513 a pure G4893 conscience.
  10 G1161 And G1381 let G3778 these G2532 also G4412 first G1381 be proved [G5744]   G1534 ; then G1247 let them use the office of a deacon [G5720]   G5607 , being [G5752]   G410 found blameless.
  11 G5615 Even so G1135 must their wives G4586 be grave G3361 , not G1228 slanderers G3524 , sober G4103 , faithful G1722 in G3956 all things.
  12 G2077 Let G1249 the deacons G2077 be [G5749]   G435 the husbands G3391 of one G1135 wife G4291 , ruling [G5734]   G5043 their children G2532 and G2398 their own G3624 houses G2573 well.
  13 G1063 For G1247 they that have used the office of a deacon [G5660]   G2573 well G4046 purchase [G5731]   G1438 to themselves G2570 a good G898 degree G2532 , and G4183 great G3954 boldness G1722 in G4102 the faith G3588 which G1722 is in G5547 Christ G2424 Jesus.
  14 G5023 These things G1125 write I [G5719]   G4671 unto thee G1679 , hoping [G5723]   G2064 to come [G5629]   G4314 unto G4571 thee G5032 shortly:
  15 G1161 But G1437 if G1019 I tarry long [G5725]   G2443 , that G1492 thou mayest know [G5762]   G4459 how G1163 thou oughtest [G5748]   G390 to behave thyself [G5745]   G1722 in G3624 the house G2316 of God G3748 , which G2076 is [G5748]   G1577 the church G2198 of the living [G5723]   G2316 God G4769 , the pillar G2532 and G1477 ground G225 of the truth.
  16 G2532 And G3672 without controversy G3173 great G2076 is [G5748]   G3466 the mystery G2150 of godliness G2316 : God G5319 was manifest [G5681]   G1722 in G4561 the flesh G1344 , justified [G5681]   G1722 in G4151 the Spirit G3700 , seen [G5681]   G32 of angels G2784 , preached [G5681]   G1722 unto G1484 the Gentiles G4100 , believed on [G5681]   G1722 in G2889 the world G353 , received up [G5681]   G1722 into G1391 glory.
ERV(i) 1 Faithful is the saying, If a man seeketh the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work. 2 The bishop therefore must be without reproach, the husband of one wife, temperate, soberminded, orderly, given to hospitality, apt to teach; 3 no brawler, no striker; but gentle, not contentious, no lover of money; 4 one that ruleth well his own house, having [his ]children in subjection with all gravity; 5 (but if a man knoweth not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?) 6 not a novice, lest being puffed up he fall into the condemnation of the devil. 7 Moreover he must have good testimony from them that are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil. 8 Deacons in like manner [must be ]grave, not doubletongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre; 9 holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience. 10 And let these also first be proved; then let them serve as deacons, if they be blameless. 11 Women in like manner [must be ]grave, not slanderers, temperate, faithful in all things. 12 Let deacons be husbands of one wife, ruling [their ]children and their own houses well. 13 For they that have served well as deacons gain to themselves a good standing, and great boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus. 14 These things write I unto thee, hoping to come unto thee shortly; 15 but if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how men ought to behave themselves in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth. 16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness; He who was manifested in the flesh, justified in the spirit, seen of angels, preached among the nations, believed on in the world, received up in glory.
