19 Do not accept an accusation against an (A)elder except on the basis of (B)two or three witnesses. 20 Those who continue in sin, (C)rebuke in the presence of all, (D)so that the rest also will be fearful of sinning. 21 (E)I solemnly exhort you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus and of His chosen angels, to maintain these principles without bias, doing nothing in a spirit of partiality. 22 (F)Do not lay hands upon anyone too quickly and [a]thereby share (G)responsibility for the sins of others; keep yourself [b]free from sin.
