o This is a faithful saying: If a man desires the position of a bishop, he desires a good work.
A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, temperate, sober-minded, of
good behavior, hospitable, able to teach; not given to wine, not violent, not greedy for
money, but gentle, not quarrelsome, not covetous; one who rules his own house well,
having his children in submission with all reverence (for if a man does not know how to
rule his own house, how will he take care of the church of God?); not a novice, lest being
puffed up with pride he fall into the same condemnation as the devil. Moreover he must
have a good testimony among those who are outside, lest he fall into reproach and the
snare of the devil.
