The Office of an Elder

The Office of an Elder

THIS is a true saying, If a man desire the office of an elder, he desires a good work.

An elder then must be blameless, the man of one woman, vigilant, sober, of good behavior, given to hospitality, apt to teach;

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

One that rules well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;

(For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the called out assembly of Elohiym?)

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

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

TIMOTHEUS RI’SHON (1 TIMOTHY) 3:1-7
