“And let these also first be proved; then let them use the office of a deacon, being found blameless.”
King James Version (KJV)
3:10 Let these he proved first - Let a trial be made how they believe. Then let them minister - Let them be fixed in that office.
1Ti 3:10 Let these also first be proved. Not novices, but men fully tested. Before they use the office of a deacon, their character must be thoroughly examined, and they must be found blameless.
