But if any widow have children or grand-children, let her learn first to govern her own house, and to make a return of duty to her parents : for this is acceptable before God. But she that is a widow indeed and desolate, let her trust in God, and continue in supplications and prayers night and day. For sle that liveth in pleasure, is dead while she is living. And this give in charge, that they may be blameless. But if any man have not care of his own, and especially of those of his house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel. Let a widow be chosen of no less than threescore years of age, who hath been the wife of one husband, having testimony for her good works, if she have brought up ehildren, if she have received to harbour, if she have washed the saints' feet, if she have ministered to them that suffer tribulation, if she hath diligently followed every good work.
