The Holy Bible - The First Epistle of Paul the Apostle to Timothy, Chapter 5 (Latin)
1Rebuke not an elder, but intreat him as a father; and the younger men as brethren;
2The elder women as mothers; the younger as sisters, with all purity.
3Honour widows that are widows indeed.
4But 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.
5Now she that is a widow indeed, and desolate, trusteth in God, and continueth in supplications and prayers night and day.
6But she that liveth in pleasure is dead while she liveth.
7And these things give in charge, that they may be blameless.
8But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.
9Let not a widow be taken into the number under threescore years old, having been the wife of one man.
10Well 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.
11But the younger widows refuse: for when they have begun to wax wanton against Christ, they will marry;
12Having damnation, because they have cast off their first faith.
13And 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.
14I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully.
15For some are already turned aside after Satan.
16If 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.
17Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.
18For the scripture saith, thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward.
19Against an elder receive not an accusation, but before two or three witnesses.
20Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.
21I 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.
22Lay hands suddenly on no man, neither be partaker of other men's sins: keep thyself pure.
23Drink no longer water, but use a little wine for thy stomach's sake and thine often infirmities.
24Some men's sins are open beforehand, going before to judgment; and some men they follow after.
25Likewise also the good works of some are manifest beforehand; and they that are otherwise cannot be hid.
1seniorem ne increpaveris sed obsecra ut patrem iuvenes ut fratres
2anus ut matres iuvenculas ut sorores in omni castitate
3viduas honora quae vere viduae sunt
4si qua autem vidua filios aut nepotes habet discant primum domum suam regere et mutuam vicem reddere parentibus hoc enim acceptum est coram Deo
5quae autem vere vidua est et desolata speravit in Deum et instat obsecrationibus et orationibus nocte ac die
6nam quae in deliciis est vivens mortua est
7et hoc praecipe ut inreprehensibiles sint
8si quis autem suorum et maxime domesticorum curam non habet fidem negavit et est infideli deterior
9vidua eligatur non minus sexaginta annorum quae fuerit unius viri uxor
10in operibus bonis testimonium habens si filios educavit si hospitio recepit si sanctorum pedes lavit si tribulationem patientibus subministravit si omne opus bonum subsecuta est
11adulescentiores autem viduas devita cum enim luxuriatae fuerint in Christo nubere volunt
12habentes damnationem quia primam fidem irritam fecerunt
13simul autem et otiosae discunt circumire domos non solum otiosae sed et verbosae et curiosae loquentes quae non oportet
14volo ergo iuveniores nubere filios procreare matres familias esse nullam occasionem dare adversario maledicti gratia
15iam enim quaedam conversae sunt retro Satanan
16si qua fidelis habet viduas subministret illis et non gravetur ecclesia ut his quae vere viduae sunt sufficiat
17qui bene praesunt presbyteri duplici honore digni habeantur maxime qui laborant in verbo et doctrina
18dicit enim scriptura non infrenabis os bovi trituranti et dignus operarius mercede sua
19adversus presbyterum accusationem noli recipere nisi sub duobus et tribus testibus
20peccantes coram omnibus argue ut et ceteri timorem habeant
21testor coram Deo et Christo Iesu et electis angelis ut haec custodias sine praeiudicio nihil faciens in aliam partem declinando
22manus cito nemini inposueris neque communicaveris peccatis alienis te ipsum castum custodi
23noli adhuc aquam bibere sed vino modico utere propter stomachum tuum et frequentes tuas infirmitates
24quorundam hominum peccata manifesta sunt praecedentia ad iudicium quosdam autem et subsequuntur
25similiter et facta bona manifesta sunt et quae aliter se habent abscondi non possunt
