The Qualification of Elders
1 Timothy 3:1 This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work. (KJV) It is a trustworthy statement: if any man aspires to the office of overseer, it is a fine work he desires to do. (NASB95)
1 Timothy 3:2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach; (KJV) An overseer, then, must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, temperate, prudent, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, (NASB95)
1 Timothy 3:3 Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous; (KJV) not addicted to wine or pugnacious, but gentle, peaceable, free from the love of money. (NASB95)
1 Timothy 3:4 One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity; (KJV) He must be one who manages his own household well, keeping his children under control with all dignity (NASB95)
1 Timothy 3:5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?) (KJV) (but if a man does not know how to manage his own household, how will he take care of the church of God?), (NASB95)
1 Timothy 3:6 Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil. (KJV) and not a new convert, so that he will not become conceited and fall into the condemnation incurred by the devil. (NASB95)
1 Timothy 3:7 Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil. (KJV) And he must have a good reputation with those outside the church, so that he will not fall into reproach and the snare of the devil. (NASB95)
Titus 1:5 For this cause left I thee in Crete, that thou shouldest set in order the things that are wanting, and ordain elders in every city, as I had appointed thee: (KJV) For this reason I left you in Crete, that you would set in order what remains and appoint elders in every city as I directed you, (NASB95)
Titus 1:6 If any be blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of riot or unruly. (KJV) namely, if any man is above reproach, the husband of one wife, having children who believe, not accused of dissipation or rebellion. (NASB95)
Titus 1:7 For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre; (KJV) For the overseer must be above reproach as God’s steward, not self-willed, not quick-tempered, not addicted to wine, not pugnacious, not fond of sordid gain, (NASB95)
Titus 1:8 But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate; (KJV) but hospitable, loving what is good, sensible, just, devout, self-controlled, (NASB95)
Titus 1:9 Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers. (KJV) holding fast the faithful word which is in accordance with the teaching, so that he will be able both to exhort in sound doctrine and to refute those who contradict. (NASB95)
