Overseers and Deacons

1 It R91 is a trustworthy statement: if any man aspires to the office R92 of overseer, F25 it is a fine work he desires to do. 2 An R93 F26 overseer, then, must be above reproach, the R94 husband of one wife, temperate, R95 prudent, respectable, hospitable, R96 able R97 to teach, 3 not R98 addicted to wine or F27 pugnacious, but gentle, peaceable, free R99 from the love of money. 4 He must be one who manages R100 his own household well, keeping his children under control with all dignity 5 (but if a man does not know how to manage his own household, how will he take care of the R101 church of God?), 6 and not a new convert, so that he will not become conceited R102 and fall into the condemnation R103 incurred F28 by the devil. 7 And he must have R104 a good reputation with those R105 outside the church, so that he will not fall into reproach and the R106 snare of the devil.

8 Deacons R107 likewise must be men of dignity, not double-tongued, F29 or R108 F30 addicted to much wine or R109 F30 fond of sordid gain, 9 but R110 holding to the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience. 10 These R111 men must also first be tested; then let them serve as deacons if they are beyond reproach. 11 Women F31 must likewise be dignified, not R112 malicious gossips, but temperate, R113 faithful in all things. 12 Deacons R114 must be husbands R115 of only one wife, and good R116 F32 managers of their children and their own households. 13 For those who have served well as deacons obtain R117 for themselves a high F33 standing and great confidence in the faith that is in Christ Jesus.

14 I am writing these things to you, hoping to come to you before long; 15 but in F34 case I am delayed, I write so that you will know how one F35 ought to conduct himself in the R118 household of God, which is the church R119 of the R120 living God, the pillar R121 and support of the truth. 16 By common confession, great is the R122 mystery of godliness: He who was revealed R123 in the flesh, Was vindicated R124 F36 in F37 the Spirit, Seen R125 by angels, Proclaimed R126 among the nations, Believed R127 on in the world, Taken R128 up in glory.
