1 Timothy 5:16

Greek/English Interlinear with Strong’s Numbers


King James Version

If any man or woman that believeth have widows, let them relieve them, and let not the ekklesia be charged; that it may relieve them that are widows indeed.
New King James Version

If any believing man or woman has widows, let them relieve them, and do not let the ekklesia be burdened, that it may relieve those who are really widows.
New American Standard Bible

If any woman who is a believer has dependent widows, let her assist them, and let not the ekklesia be burdened, so that it may assist those who are widows indeed.
New International Version

If any woman who is a believer has widows in her family, she should help them and not let the ekklesia be burdened with them, so that the ekklesia can help those widows who are really in need.
The Amplified Bible

If any believing woman or believing man has [relatives or persons in the household who are] widows, let him relieve them; let the ekklesia not be burdened [with them], so that it may [be free to] assist those who are truly widows (those who are all alone and are dependent).
Wuest’s Expanded Translation

If, as is the case, a certain person who is a believer has widows, let him be giving them assistance, and let not the assembly be burdened, in order that it may give assistance to those who are truly widows.
Phillips’ Modern English

5. As a general rule, it should be taken for granted that any Christians who have widows in the family circle should do everything possible for them and not allow them to become the ekklesia’s responsibility. The ekklesia will then be free to look after those widows who are alone in the world.
Williams’ Language of the People

If a Christian woman has widowed relatives, she should help them, and let the ekklesia be free from the burden, so that it can help the widows who are really dependent.
