The King James Version Bible

1 Timothy 3:3-8

  1. Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;

  2. One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;

  3. (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)

  4. Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil.

  5. Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.

  6. Likewise must the deacons be grave, not doubletongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre;
