O Papel do Homem
For when we were with you we gave you this command, "If any one will not work, neither is he to eat."
In the same way, you husbands must live with your wives wisely, since woman's sex is weaker, but you must give them honor as fellow heirs of the grace of life, so that your prayers may not be hindered.
Watch, stand firmly in the faith, be manly, be strong,
Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh toward them.
Do not be drunk with wine, in which there is profligacy, but be full of the Spirit,
If any one does not provide for his own, and especially those of his own household, he has disowned the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.
Husbands, love your wives, as Christ also loved the church and gave himself for it,
Whatever you do, do it heartily as for the Lord and not for men,
2 A bishop, then, should be above reproach, true to one woman, temperate, self-controlled, dignified, hospitable, with a gift for teaching,
3 not given to wine or to blows, but fair-minded, averse to strife, not a lover of money,
4 presiding well over his own house, with children obedient and respectful.
And you, fathers, do not irritate your children, but bring them up in the education and admonition of the Lord.
