1 Timothy 3:1–3 (Listen)

Qualifications for Overseers

3:1 The saying is trustworthy: If anyone aspires to the office of overseer, he desires a noble task. Therefore an overseer1 must be above reproach, the husband of one wife,2 sober-minded, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not a drunkard, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money.


[1] 3:2 Or bishop; Greek episkopos; a similar term occurs in verse 1

[2] 3:2 Or a man of one woman; also verse 12
