1 Timothy 3:8-11 English Standard Version (ESV)

Qualifications for Deacons

Deacons likewise must be dignified, not double-tongued,[a] not addicted to much wine, not greedy for dishonest gain. They must hold the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience. 10 And let them also be tested first; then let them serve as deacons if they prove themselves blameless. 11 Their wives likewise[b] must be dignified, not slanderers, but sober-minded, faithful in all things.
