1 Timothy 5:1–2 (Listen)

5:1 Do not rebuke an older man but encourage him as you would a father, younger men as brothers, older women as mothers, younger women as sisters, in all purity.


1 Timothy 4:12 (Listen)

12 Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.


1 Timothy 3:15–16 (Listen)

15 if I delay, you may know how one ought to behave in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, a pillar and buttress of the truth. 16 Great indeed, we confess, is the mystery of godliness:

  He was manifested in the flesh,
    vindicated by the Spirit,
      seen by angels,
  proclaimed among the nations,
    believed on in the world,
      taken up in glory.
