1 Timothy 5:17-6:2, NLT
17Elders who do their work well should be respected and paid well,*5:17 Greek should be worthy of double honor. especially those who work hard at both preaching and teaching.
19Do not listen to an accusation against an elder unless it is confirmed by two or three witnesses.
21I solemnly command you in the presence of God and Christ Jesus and the highest angels to obey these instructions without taking sides or showing favoritism to anyone.
22Never be in a hurry about appointing a church leader.*5:22 Greek about the laying on of hands. Do not share in the sins of others. Keep yourself pure.
23Don’t drink only water. You ought to drink a little wine for the sake of your stomach because you are sick so often.
24Remember, the sins of some people are obvious, leading them to certain judgment. But there are others whose sins will not be revealed until later.
1 Timothy 6
1All slaves should show full respect for their masters so they will not bring shame on the name of God and his teaching.
