1 Timothy 3:2

The bishop (ton episkopon).
The overseer. Old word, in LXX, and inscriptions and papyri. Deissmann (Bible Studies, pp. 230f.) has shown it is applied to communal officials in Rhodes. See Acts 20:28 for its use for the elders (presbyters) in verse Acts 20:17. So also in Titus 1:5,7. See Philippians 1:1. The word does not in the N.T. have the monarchical sense found in Ignatius of a bishop over elders.

Without reproach (anepilhmpton).
Accusative case of general reference with dei and einai. Old and common verbal (a privative and epilambanw, not to be taken hold of), irreproachable. In N.T. only here, 5:7; 6:14.

Of one wife (miav gunaikov).
One at a time, clearly.

Temperate (nhpalion).
Old adjective. In N.T. only here, verse 11; Titus 2:2. But see nhpw, to be sober in 1 Thessalonians 5:6,8.

Soberminded (swprona).
Another old adjective (from saov or swv, sound, prhn, mind) in N.T. only here, Titus 1:8; 2:2,5.

Orderly (kosmion).
See on 1 Timothy 2:9. Seemly, decent conduct.

Given to hospitality (piloxenon).
Old word (see piloxenia in Romans 12:13), from pilov and xenov, in N.T. only here, Titus 1:8; 1 Peter 4:9.

Apt to teach (didaktikon).
Late form for old didaskalikov, one qualified to teach. In Philo and N.T. only (1 Timothy 3:2; 2 Timothy 2:24).
