“For a Bishop must be blameles, as the steward of God: not selfewilled, not soone angry, not giuen to wine, no striker, not giuen to filthie lucre,”
1611 King James Version (KJV)
1:7 As the steward of God - To whom he intrusts immortal souls. Not selfwilled - Literally, pleasing himself; but all men for their good to edification. Not passionate - But mild, yielding, tender.
Tit 1:7 For a bishop. An elder and bishop were then different names for the same office. See PNT "1Ti 3:1". Must be. Unless he has these traits he must not be appointed. Blameless. No charge against him. Compare and see notes on 1Ti 3:2-3.
