1 Timothy 5:16-18 New Revised Standard Version, Anglicised (NRSVA)

16 If any believing woman[a] has relatives who are really widows, let her assist them; let the church not be burdened, so that it can assist those who are real widows.

17 Let the elders who rule well be considered worthy of double honour,[b] especially those who labour in preaching and teaching; 18 for the scripture says, ‘You shall not muzzle an ox while it is treading out the grain’, and, ‘The labourer deserves to be paid.’


  1. 1 Timothy 5:16 Other ancient authorities read believing man or woman; others, believing man
  2. 1 Timothy 5:17 Or compensation
