1 Timothy 5 (WEBP)

[1] Don’t rebuke an older man, but exhort him as a father; the younger men as brothers;
[2] the elder women as mothers; the younger as sisters, in all purity.
[3] Honor widows who are widows indeed.
[4] But if any widow has children or grandchildren, let them learn first to show piety toward their own family and to repay their parents, for this is° acceptable in the sight of God.
[5] Now she who is a widow indeed and desolate, has her hope set on God and continues in petitions and prayers night and day.
[6] But she who gives herself to pleasure is dead while she lives.
[7] Also command these things, that they may be without reproach.
[8] But if anyone doesn’t provide for his own, and especially his own household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.
[9] Let no one be enrolled as a widow under sixty years old, having been the wife of one man,
[10] being approved by good works, if she has brought up children, if she has been hospitable to strangers, if she has washed the saints’ feet, if she has relieved the afflicted, and if she has diligently followed every good work.
[11] But refuse younger widows, for when they have grown wanton against Christ, they desire to marry,
[12] having condemnation, because they have rejected their first pledge.
[13] Besides, they also learn to be idle, going about from house to house. Not only idle, but also gossips and busybodies, saying things which they ought not.
[14] I desire therefore that the younger widows marry, bear children, rule the household, and give no occasion to the adversary for insulting.
[15] For already some have turned away after Satan.
[16] If any man or woman who believes has widows, let them relieve them, and don’t let the assembly be burdened, that it might relieve those who are widows indeed.
[17] Let the elders who rule well be counted worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in the word and in teaching.
[18] For the Scripture says, “You shall not muzzle the ox when it treads out the grain.” And, “The laborer is worthy of his wages.”
[19] Don’t receive an accusation against an elder except at the word of two or three witnesses.
[20] Those who sin, reprove in the sight of all, that the rest also may be in fear.
[21] I command you in the sight of God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, and the chosen angels, that you observe these things without prejudice, doing nothing by partiality.
[22] Lay hands hastily on no one. Don’t be a participant in other people’s sins. Keep yourself pure.
[23] Be no longer a drinker of water only, but use a little wine for your stomach’s sake and your frequent infirmities.
[24] Some men’s sins are evident, preceding them to judgment, and some also follow later.
[25] In the same way also there are good works that are obvious, and those that are otherwise can’t be hidden.

King James w/Strong’s #s

1 Timothy 5 (KJVS)

[1] Rebuke G1969 (AorActSubj) not G3361 an elder G4245, but G235 intreat G3870 (PresActImpr) [him] as G5613 a father G3962; [and] the younger men G3501 as G5613 brethren G80;
[2] The elder women G4245 as G5613 mothers G3384; the younger G3501 as G5613 sisters G79, with G1722 all G3956 purity G47.
[3] Honour G5091 (PresActImpr) widows G5503 that are widows G5503 indeed G3689.
[4] But G1161 if any G1536 widow G5503 have G2192 (PresActInd) children G5043 or G2228 nephews G1549, let them learn G3129 (PresActImpr) first G4412 to shew piety G2151 (PresActInf) at home G2398 G3624, and G2532 to requite G287 G591 (PresActInf) their parents G4269: for G1063 that G5124 is G2076 (PresInd) good G2570 and G2532 acceptable G587 before G1799 God G2316.
[5] Now G1161 she that is a widow G5503 indeed G3689, and G2532 desolate G3443 (PerfPasPtc), trusteth G1679 (PerfActInd) in G1909 God G2316, and G2532 continueth G4357 (PresActInd) in supplications G1162 and G2532 prayers G4335 night G3571 and G2532 day G2250.
[6] But G1161 she that liveth in pleasure G4684 (PresActPtc) is dead G2348 (PerfActInd) while she liveth G2198 (PresActPtc).
[7] And G2532 these things G5023 give in charge G3853 (PresActImpr), that G2443 they may be G5600 (PresSubj) blameless G423.
[8] But G1161 if any G1536 provide G4306 (PresActInd) not G3756 for his own G2398, and G2532 specially G3122 for those of his own house G3609, he hath denied G720 (PerfMidDepInd) the faith G4102, and G2532 is G2076 (PresInd) worse than G5501 an infidel G571.
[9] Let G2639 not G3361 a widow G5503 be taken into the number G2639 (PresPasImpr) under G1640 threescore G1835 years old G2094, having been G1096 (Perf2ActPtc) the wife G1135 of one G1520 man G435,
[10] Well reported of G3140 (PresPasPtc) for G1722 good G2570 works G2041; if G1487 she have brought up G5044 (AorActInd) children, if G1487 she have lodged strangers G3580 (AorActInd), if G1487 she have washed G3538 (AorActInd) the saints G40’ feet G4228, if G1487 she have relieved G1884 (AorActInd) the afflicted G2346 (PresPasPtc), if G1487 she have diligently followed G1872 (AorActInd) every G3956 good G18 work G2041.
[11] But G1161 the younger G3501 widows G5503 refuse G3868 (PresMidPasDepImpr): for G1063 when G3752 they have begun to wax wanton against G2691 (AorActSubj) Christ G5547, they will G2309 (PresActInd) marry G1060 (PresActInf);
[12] Having G2192 (PresActPtc) damnation G2917, because G3754 they have cast off G114 (AorActInd) their first G4413 faith G4102.
[13] And G1161 G2532 withal G260 they learn G3129 (PresActInd) [to be] idle G692, wandering about G4022 (PresMidPasDepPtc) from house to house G3614; and G1161 not G3756 only G3440 idle G692, but G235 tattlers G5397 also G2532 and G2532 busybodies G4021, speaking G2980 (PresActPtc) things which G3588 they ought G1163 (PresPtc) not G3361.
[14] I will G1014 (PresMidPasDepInd) therefore G3767 that the younger women G3501 marry G1060 (PresActInf), bear children G5041 (PresActInf), guide the house G3616 (PresActInf), give G1325 (PresActInf) none G3367 occasion G874 to the adversary G480 (PresMidPasDepPtc) to G5484 speak reproachfully G3059.
[15] For G1063 some G5100 are G1624 already G2235 turned aside G1624 (Aor2PasDepSubj) after G3694 Satan G4567.
[16] If any G1536 man G4103 or G2228 woman that believeth G4103 have G2192 (PresActInd) widows G5503, let them relieve G1884 (PresActImpr) them G846, and G2532 let G916 not G3361 the church G1577 be charged G916 (PresPasImpr); that G2443 it may relieve G1884 (AorActSubj) them that are widows G5503 indeed G3689.
[17] Let G515 the elders G4245 that rule G4291 (PerfActPtc) well G2573 be counted worthy G515 (PresPasImpr) of double G1362 honour G5092, especially G3122 they who labour G2872 (PresActPtc) in G1722 the word G3056 and G2532 doctrine G1319.
[18] For G1063 the scripture G1124 saith G3004 (PresActInd), Thou shalt G5392 not G3756 muzzle G5392 (FutActInd) the ox G1016 that treadeth out the corn G248 (PresActPtc). And G2532, The labourer G2040 [is] worthy G514 of his G846 reward G3408.
[19] Against G2596 an elder G4245 receive G3858 (PresMidPasDepImpr) not G3361 an accusation G2724, but G1508 G1622 before G1909 two G1417 or G2228 three G5140 witnesses G3144.
[20] Them that sin G264 (PresActPtc) rebuke G1651 (PresActImpr) before G1799 all G3956, that G2443 others G3062 also G2532 may G2192 (PresActSubj) fear G5401.
[21] I charge G1263 (PresMidPasDepInd) [thee] before G1799 God G2316, and G2532 the Lord G2962 Jesus G2424 Christ G5547, and G2532 the elect G1588 angels G32, that G2443 thou observe G5442 (AorActSubj) these things G5023 without G5565 preferring one before another G4299, doing G4160 (PresActPtc) nothing G3367 by G2596 partiality G4346.
[22] Lay G2007 hands G5495 suddenly G5030 on G2007 (PresActImpr) no man G3367, neither G3366 be partaker G2841 (PresActImpr) of other G245 men’s sins G266: keep G5083 (PresActImpr) thyself G4572 pure G53.
[23] Drink G5202 no longer G3371 water G5202 (PresActImpr), but G235 use G5530 (PresMidPasDepImpr) a little G3641 wine G3631 for G1223 thy G4675 stomach’s sake G4751 and G2532 thine G4675 often G4437 infirmities G769.
[24] Some G5100 men’s G444 sins G266 are G1526 (PresInd) open beforehand G4271, going before G4254 (PresActPtc) to G1519 judgment G2920; and G1161 G2532 some G5100 [men] they follow after G1872 (PresActInd).
[25] Likewise G5615 also G2532 the good G2570 works G2041 [of some] are G2076 (PresInd) manifest beforehand G4271; and G2532 they that are G2192 (PresActPtc) otherwise G247 cannot G3756 G1410 (PresMidPasDepInd) be hid G2928 (Aor2PasInf).

Young’s Literal Translation

1 Timothy 5 (YLT)

[1] An aged person thou mayest not rebuke, but be entreating as a father; younger persons as brethren;
[2] aged women as mothers, younger ones as sisters-in all purity;
[3] honour widows who are really widows;
[4] and if any widow have children or grandchildren, let them learn first to their own house to show piety, and to give back a recompense to the parents, for this is right and acceptable before God.
[5] And she who is really a widow and desolate, hath hoped upon God, and doth remain in the supplications and in the prayers night and day,
[6] and she who is given to luxury, living-hath died;
[7] and these things charge, that they may be blameless;
[8] and if any one for his own-and especially for those of the household-doth not provide, the faith he hath denied, and than an unbeliever he is worse.
[9] A widow-let her not be enrolled under sixty years of age, having been a wife of one husband,
[10] in good works being testified to: if she brought up children, if she entertained strangers, if saints’ feet she washed, if those in tribulation she relieved, if every good work she followed after;
[11] and younger widows be refusing, for when they may revel against the Christ, they wish to marry,
[12] having judgment, because the first faith they did cast away,
[13] and at the same time also, they learn to be idle, going about the houses; and not only idle, but also tattlers and busybodies, speaking the things they ought not;
[14] I wish, therefore, younger ones to marry, to bear children, to be mistress of the house, to give no occasion to the opposer to reviling;
[15] for already certain did turn aside after the Adversary.
[16] If any believing man or believing woman have widows, let them relieve them, and let not the assembly be burdened, that those really widows it may relieve.
[17] The well-leading elders of double honour let them be counted worthy, especially those labouring in word and teaching,
[18] for the Writing saith, ‘An ox treading out thou shalt not muzzle,’ and ‘Worthy is the workman of his reward.’
[19] Against an elder an accusation receive not, except upon two or three witnesses.
[20] Those sinning, reprove before all, that the others also may have fear;
[21] I testify fully, before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, and the choice messengers, that these things thou mayest keep, without forejudging, doing nothing by partiality.
[22] Be laying hands quickly on no one, nor be having fellowship with sins of others; be keeping thyself pure;
[23] no longer be drinking water, but a little wine be using, because of thy stomach and of thine often infirmities;
[24] of certain men the sins are manifest beforehand, leading before to judgment, and certain also they follow after;
[25] in like manner also the right works are manifest beforehand, and those that are otherwise are not able to be hid.
