O Papel do Homem
For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: »If anyone will not work, he shall not eat.«
Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with honor as the weaker partner, since you are joint heirs of the grace of life, so that your prayers will not be hindered.
Be on the your guard, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.
Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them.
And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery; but be filled with the Spirit,
If any one does not provide for his relatives, and especially for his own family, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her,
Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men,
Now the overseer must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach,
not given to drunkenness, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money.
He must manage his own household well, keeping his children under control with all dignity
Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.
