11 And it happened afterwards that he went to a city, which is called Nain. And his disciples, and an abundant crowd, went with him.
12 Then, when he had drawn near to the gate of the city, behold, a deceased person was being carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow. And a large crowd from the city was with her.
13 And when the Lord had seen her, being moved by mercy over her, he said to her, "Do not weep."
14 And he drew near and touched the coffin. Then those who carried it stood still. And he said, "Young man, I say to you, arise."
15 And the dead youth sat up and began to speak. And he gave him to his mother.
16 Then fear fell over all of them. And they magnified God, saying: "For a great prophet has risen up among us," and, "For God has visited his people."
17 And this word about him went out to all of Judea and to the entire surrounding region.
1 Timothy 3:1-13
1 It is a faithful saying: if a man desires the episcopate, he desires a good work.
2 Therefore, it is necessary for a bishop to be beyond reproach, the husband of one wife, sober, prudent, gracious, chaste, hospitable, a teacher,
3 not a drunkard, not combative but restrained, not quarrelsome, not covetous;
4 but a man who leads his own house well, having children who are subordinate with all chastity.
5 For if a man does not know how to lead his own house, how will he take care of the Church of God?
6 He must not be a new convert, lest, being elated by pride, he may fall under the sentence of the devil.
7 And it is necessary for him also to have good testimony from those who are outside, so that he may not fall into disrepute and the snare of the devil.
8 Similarly, deacons must be chaste, not double-tongued, not given to much wine, not pursuing tainted profit,
9 holding to the mystery of the faith with a pure conscience.
10 And these things should be proven first, and then they may minister, being without offense.
11 Similarly, the women must be chaste, not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things.
12 Deacons should be the husband of one wife, men who lead their own children and their own houses well.
13 For those who have ministered well will acquire for themselves a good position, and much confidence in the faith which is in Christ Jesus.
