Bible, Ethician Version
 For a bishop
must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, no
striker, not given to filthy lucre;
 But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate;
 For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers:
 Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake.
 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.
 But speak
thou the things which become sound doctrine:
 That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience.
 The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, teachers of good things;
 That they may teach the young women to love their husbands, to love their children,
 Young men likewise exhort to be sober minded.
 In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity,
 Sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of you.
 To speak evil
of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men.
 For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.
 And let ours also learn to maintain good works for necessary uses, that they be not unfruitful.
