Chapter 3

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