1 Timothy 3:1-7

1 Here is a trustworthy saying: If anyone sets his heart

on being an overseer, he desires a noble task.

2 Now the overseer must be above reproach, the husband of but one wife,

temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach,

3 not given to drunkenness, not violent but gentle,

not quarrelsome, not a lover of money.

4 He must manage his own family well and see

that his children obey him with proper respect.

5 (If anyone does not know how to manage his own family,

how can he take care of God’s church?)

6 He must not be a recent convert, or he may become conceited

and fall under the same judgment as the devil.

7 He must also have a good reputation with outsiders

so that he will not fall into disgrace

and into the devil’s trap.
