And besides they learn to be idle, wandering about from house to house, and not only idle but also gossips and busybodies, saying things which they ought not. 1 Timothy 5:13

Paul’s word here are still speaking of younger widows. He had just noted that by marrying again, after having committed themselves to Christ, they are “having condemnation because they have cast off their first faith.” Now he adds to that with, “And besides, they learn to be idle.” If they were receiving their support from the church, it is possible that they would find it easier to simply receive the care of the church and to not go beyond that as far as productivity is concerned.Read the rest

…having condemnation because they have cast off their first faith. 1 Timothy 5:12

Paul’s words here must be considered in their context, or a wholly false reading of what is being conveyed will result. He has said in Romans 8:1 that, “There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus to those who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.” There, an intensified form of the word krima, or judgment, which is found here is used.Read the rest

Verses 9 & 10 gave the requirements for allowing a woman onto the rolls of widows in a church. When they met the requirements, they would be allowed to receive care from the church.Read the rest

…well reported for good works: if she has brought up children, if she has lodged strangers, if she has washed the saints’ feet, if she has relieved the afflicted, if she has diligently followed every good work. 1 Timothy 5:10

These words continue on from verse 10 concerning eligibility for a widow to be “taken into the number,” meaning acceptable for assistance by the church for her livelihood.Read the rest

Do not let a widow under sixty years old be taken into the number, and not unless she has been the wife of one man, 1 Timothy 5:9

Scholars have taken the words of this verse – words which are plain, simple, and unambiguous – and they have developed all kinds of crazy notions as to what Paul is saying here.Read the rest
