aThis is a true saying, If a man desire bthe office of a bishop, he desireth a good work. cA dbishop then must be eblameless, fthe husband of one wife, gvigilant, hsober, ||of good behaviour, igiven to hospitality, kapt to teach; ||lNot given to wine, no striker, mnot greedy of filthy lucre; but npatient, onot a brawler, pnot covetous; qOne that ruleth well his own house, qhaving his children in subjection with all rgravity; (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of sthe church of God?) Not ||a novice, lest being tlifted up with pride he fall into uthe condemnation of the devil. Moreover he must vhave a good report of wthem which are without; lest he fall into reproach and xthe snare of the devil.
