“Not giuen to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre, but patient, not a brawler, not couetous;”
1611 King James Version (KJV)
1Ti 3:3 Not given to wine. Not a drunken brawler is the idea of the Greek. We must always bear in mind that the church had been formed of Gentiles whose morals had been at a very low standard.
