Honoring the Elders

17 The elders who are good leaders should be considered worthy of an ample honorarium,[a] especially those who work hard(A) at preaching and teaching. 18 For the Scripture says:

Do not muzzle an ox
while it is treading out the grain,(B)[b] and,
the worker is worthy of his wages.(C)

19 Don’t accept an accusation against an elder unless it is supported by two or three witnesses.(D)
