1 Timothy 3:1-5Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA)

A faithful saying: if a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work.

It behoveth therefore a bishop to be blameless, the husband of one wife, sober, prudent, of good behaviour, chaste, given to hospitality, a teacher,

Not given to wine, no striker, but modest, not quarrelsome, not covetous, but

One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all chastity.

But if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?
