1 G4103 This is a true G3056 saying G1536 , If a man G3713 [G5731] desireth G1984 the office of a bishop G1937 [G5719] , he desireth G2570 a good G2041 work.
2 G1985 A bishop G3767 then G1163 [G5748] must G1511 [G5750] be G423 blameless G435 , the husband G3391 of one G1135 wife G3524 , temperate G4998 , sober minded G2887 , of good behaviour G5382 , given to hospitality G1317 , apt to teach;
3 G3361 Not G3943 given to wine G3361 , not G4131 violent G3361 , not G146 greedy for money G235 ; but G1933 patient G269 , not a brawler G866 , not covetous;
4 G4291 [G5734] One that ruleth G2573 well G2398 his own G3624 house G2192 [G5723] , having G5043 his children G1722 in G5292 subjection G3326 with G3956 all G4587 gravity;
5 G1161 (For G1536 if a man G1492 0 knoweth G3756 not G1492 [G5758] how G4291 [G5629] to rule G2398 his own G3624 house G4459 , how G1959 [G5695] shall he take care of G1577 the church G2316 of God?)
6 G3361 Not G3504 a novice G3363 , lest G5187 [G5685] being lifted up with pride G1706 [G5632] he fall G1519 into G2917 the condemnation G1228 of the devil.
7 G1161 G2532 Moreover G846 he G1163 [G5748] must G2192 [G5721] have G2570 a good G3141 report G575 of G1855 them who are outside G3363 the church; lest G1706 [G5632] he fall 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 [G5723] given G4183 to much G3631 wine G3361 , not G146 greedy for money;
9 G2192 [G5723] Holding G3466 the mystery G4102 of the faith G1722 in G2513 a pure G4893 conscience.
10 G1161 And G1381 0 let G3778 these G2532 also G4412 first G1381 [G5744] be proved G1534 ; then G1247 [G5720] let them use the office of a deacon G5607 [G5752] , being G410 found blameless.
11 G5615 Even so G1135 must their wives G4586 be grave G3361 , not G1228 slanderers G3524 , sober minded G4103 , faithful G1722 in G3956 all things.
12 G2077 0 Let G1249 the deacons G2077 [G5749] be G435 the husbands G3391 of one G1135 wife G4291 [G5734] , ruling G5043 their children G2532 and G2398 their own G3624 houses G2573 well.
13 G1063 For G1247 [G5660] they that have used the office of a deacon G2573 well G4046 [G5731] , purchase G1438 to themselves G2570 a good G898 standing 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 [G5719] I write G4671 to thee G1679 [G5723] , hoping G2064 [G5629] to come G4314 to G4571 thee G5032 shortly:
15 G1161 But G1437 if G1019 [G5725] I tarry long G2443 , that G1492 [G5762] thou mayest know G4459 how G1163 [G5748] thou oughtest G390 [G5745] to behave thyself G1722 in G3624 the house G2316 of God G3748 , which G2076 [G5748] is G1577 the church G2198 [G5723] of the living G2316 God G4769 , the pillar G2532 and G1477 ground G225 of the truth.
16 G2532 And G3672 without controversy G3173 great G2076 [G5748] is G3466 the mystery G2150 of godliness G2316 : God G5319 [G5681] was revealed G1722 in G4561 the flesh G1344 [G5681] , justified G1722 in G4151 the Spirit G3700 [G5681] , seen G32 by angels G2784 [G5681] , preached G1722 to G1484 the Gentiles G4100 [G5681] , believed on G1722 in G2889 the world G353 [G5681] , received up G1722 into G1391 glory.
