Verse of the Day (September 9, 2020) #BMSeminary – The aged men are elderly men, not necessarily those who hold the office of elder. They are to be sober [sensible], grave [dignified], temperate [prudent and thoughtful], sound [healthy] in faith [lit., “the faith”], in charity [that is, love], in patience (or perseverance). Thus, the aged men are to be examples of godliness to the younger men. The aged women, older women, are to be in behaviour [demeanor] as becometh holiness. They must thus be teachers of good things by teaching the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, and to love their children. The older women are to teach the younger by their example. Discreet means modest and decent. Chaste is sexually pure. Keepers at home means workers at home, not idle. Obedient to their own husbands means being submissive to their own husbands. [KJV Study Bible, HarperCollins]
