5:1 Blame thou not an elder man, but beseech him as a father, young men as brethren; Rebuke not a senior: but exhort him as a father, and the younger men as brethren, Rebuke not an elder, but exhort him as a father, & the younger men as brethren, Rebuke not an Elder, but intreat him as a father, and the younger men as brethren:
5:2 old women as mothers, young women as sisters, in all chastity. the elder women as mothers, the younger as sisters, with all pureness. The elder women as mothers, the younger as sisters, with all pureness. The elder women as mothers, the younger as sisters with all purity.
5:3 Honour the widows, that be very widows. Honour widows which are true widows. Honour widows, which are widows indeed. Honour widows that are widows indeed.
5:4 Forsooth if any widow hath sons, or cousins, learn she first to govern her house, and requite to father and mother; for this thing is accepted before God. If any widow have children or nephews, let them learn first to rule their own houses godly, and to recompense their elders. For that is good and acceptable before God. But if any widow have children or nephews, let them learn first to shew godliness toward their own house, and to recompense their kindred: for that is an honest thing and acceptable before God. But if any widow have children or nephews, let them learn first to shew piety at home, and to requite their parents: for that is good and acceptable before God.
5:5 And she that is a widow verily, and desolate, hope she into God, and be busy in beseechings and prayers night and day. She that is a very widow, and friendless, putteth her trust in god, and continueth in supplication and prayer night and day: And she that is a widow indeed and left alone, trusteth in God, & continueth in supplications and prayers night and day. Now she that is a widow indeed, and desolate, trusteth in God, and continueth in supplications and prayers night and day.
5:6 For she that is living in delights, is dead in soul. but she that liveth in pleasure, is dead even yet alive. But she that liveth in pleasure, is dead, while she liveth. But she that liveth in pleasure, is dead while she liveth.
5:7 And this thing command thou, that they be without reproof. And such things command, that they may be without fault. These things therefore command, that they may be blameless. And these things give in charge, that they may be blameless.
5:8 For if any man hath not care of his own, and most of his household members, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an unfaithful man. If there be any that provideth not for his own, and namely for them of his household the same denieth the faith, and is worse than an infidel. If there be any that provideth not for his own, & namely for them of his household, he denieth the faith, and is worse than an infidel. But if any provide not for his own, & specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.
5:9 A widow be chosen into the temple not less than sixty years, that was wife of one husband, Let no widow be chosen under threescore year old, and such a one as was the wife of one man, Let not a widow be taken into the number under threescore year old, that hath been the wife of one husband, Let not a widow be taken into the number, under threescore years old, having been the wife of one man,
5:10 having witnessing in good works, if she nourished sons, if she received poor men to harbour, if she hath washed the feet of holy men, if she under-ministered to men suffering tribulation, if she followed all good work. and well reported of in good works: if she have nourished children, if she have been liberal to strangers, if she have washed the saints’ feet, if she have ministered unto them which were in adversity, if she were continually given unto all manner good works. And well reported of for good works: if she have nourished her children, if she have lodged the strangers, if she have washed the Saints’ feet, if she have ministered unto them which were in adversity, if she were continually given unto every good work. Well reported of for good works, if she have brought up children, if she have lodged strangers, if she have washed the Saints’ feet, if she have relieved the afflicted, if she have diligently followed every good work.
5:11 Forsooth eschew younger widows; forsooth when they have done lechery in Christ, they will be wedded, The younger widows refuse. For when they have begun to wax wanton, to the dishonour of Christ, then will they marry, But refuse the younger widows: for when they have begun to wax wanton against Christ, they will marry, But the younger widows refuse: for when they have begun to wax wanton against Christ, they will marry,
5:12 having damnation, for they have made void the first faith. having damnation, because they have despised their first faith. Having damnation, because they have broken the first faith. Having damnation, because they have cast off their first faith.
5:13 Also and they idle learn to go about houses, not only idle, but and they be full of words and curiosity, speaking things that it behooveth not. And also they learn to go from house to house idle, yea not idle only, but also trifling and busybodies, speaking things which are not comely. And likewise also being idle they learn to go about from house to house: yea, they are not only idle, but also prattlers and busybodies, speaking things which are not comely. And withal they learn to be idle, wandering about from house to house; and not only idle, but tattlers also, and busybodies, speaking things which they ought not.
5:14 Therefore I will, that younger widows be wedded, and bring forth children, and be housewives, to give none occasion to the adversary, by cause of cursed thing. I will therefore that the younger women marry and bear children, and guide the house, and give none occasion to the adversary to speak evil. I will therefore that the younger women marry, and bear children, & govern the house, and give none occasion to the adversary to speak evil. I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully.
5:15 For now some be turned aback after Satan. For many of them are already turned back, and are gone after Satan. For certain are already turned back after Satan. For some are already turned aside after Satan.
5:16 If any faithful man hath widows, under-minister he to them, that the church be not charged, that it suffice to them that be very widows. And if any man or woman that believeth have widows, let them minister unto them, and let not the congregation be charged: that it may have sufficient for them that are widows indeed. If any faithful man, or faithful woman have widows, let them minister unto them, and let not the Church be charged, that there may be sufficient for them that are widows indeed. If any man or woman that believeth have widows, let them relieve them, and let not the Church be charged, that it may relieve them that are widows indeed.
5:17 The priests that be well before, be they had worthy to double honour; most they that travail in word and teaching. The seniors that rule well are worthy of double honour, most specially they which labour in the word and in teaching. The Elders that rule well, are worthy of double honour, specially they which labour in the word and doctrine. Let the Elders that rule well, be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.
5:18 For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not bridle the mouth of the ox threshing, and, A workman is worthy his hire. For the scripture saith: Thou shalt not muzzle the mouth of the ox that treadeth out the corn. And the labourer is worthy of his reward. For the Scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the mouth of the ox that treadeth out the corn: and, The labourer is worthy of his wages. For the Scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn: and, The labourer is worthy of his reward.
5:19 Do not thou receive accusing against a priest, but under two or three witnesses. Against an senior receive none accusation: but under two or three witnesses. Against an Elder receive none accusation, but under two or three witnesses. Against an Elder receive not an accusation, but before two or three witnesses.
5:20 Men sinning before all men reprove thou, that and others have dread. Them that sin rebuke openly that other may fear. Them that sin, rebuke openly, that the rest also may fear. Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.
5:21 I pray thee before God, and Jesus Christ, and his chosen angels, that thou keep these things without prejudice, doing nothing, bowing into another part. I testify before god, and the lord Jesus Christ, and the elect angels, that thou observe these things without hasty judgement, and do nothing partially. I charge thee before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, and the elect Angels, that thou observe these things without preferring one to another, & do nothing partially. I charge thee before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, and the elect Angels, that thou observe these things without preferring one before another, doing nothing by partiality.
5:22 Put thou hands to no man soon, neither commune thou with other men’s sins. Keep thyself chaste. Lay hands suddenly on no man neither be partaker of other men’s sins. Keep thyself pure. Lay hands suddenly on no man, neither be partaker of other men’s sins: keep thyself pure. Lay hands suddenly on no man, neither be partaker of other men’s sins. Keep thyself pure.
5:23 Do not thou yet drink water, but use a little wine, for thy stomach, and for thine oft falling infirmities. Drink no longer water, but use a little wine, for thy stomach’s sake, and thine often diseases. Drink no longer water, but use a little wine for thy stomach’s sake, and thine often infirmities. Drink no longer water, but use a little wine for thy stomach’s sake, and thine often infirmities.
5:24 Some men’s sins be open, going before to doom; forsooth of some men and they follow. Some men’s sins are open beforehand and go before unto judgement: some men’s sins follow after. Some men’s sins are open beforehand, and go before unto judgement: but some men’s follow after. Some men’s sins are open beforehand, going before to judgement: and some men they follow after.
5:25 Also and good deeds be open, and they that have them otherwise, may not be hid. Likewise also good works are manifest beforehand, and they that are otherwise, cannot be hid. Likewise also the good works are manifest beforehand, and they that are otherwise, cannot be hid. Likewise also the good works of some are manifest beforehand, and they that are otherwise, cannot be hid.
