1 Timothy 3:8-9

Be

reverent, not double-tongued, not addicted to much wine, not greedy for money; holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience.
1 Timothy 3:8-9

Context

1 Timothy 3 [8.] Servants,[b] in the same way, must be reverent, not double-tongued, not addicted to much wine, not greedy for money; holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience. Let them also first be tested; then let them serve[c] if they are blameless. Their wives in the same way must be reverent, not slanderers, temperate, faithful in all things. Let servants[d] be husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well. For those who have served well[e] gain for themselves a good standing, and great boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus.
