1 Timothy 3:11
Even so must their wives be grave, not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things.
a. ASV: Women in like manner must be grave, not slanderers, temperate, faithful in all things.
b. YLT: Women -- in like manner grave, not false accusers, vigilant, faithful in all things.
d. Amplified Bible Classic: [The] women likewise must be worthy of respect and serious, not gossipers, but temperate and self-controlled, [thoroughly] trustworthy in all things.
1. “Even so must their wives be grave…”
a. Even so [Strong: 5615 hōsaútōs, ho-sow'-toce; from G5613 and an adverb from G846; as thus, i.e. in the same way:—even so, likewise, after the same (in like) manner.]
b. [must their] wives [Strong: 1135 gynḗ, goo-nay'; probably from the base of G1096; a woman; specially, a wife:—wife, woman.]
c. [be] grave [Strong: 4586 semnós, sem-nos'; from G4576; venerable, i.e. honorable:—grave, honest.]
2. “...not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things.”
a. not [Strong: 3361 mḗ, may; a primary particle of qualified negation (whereas G3756 expresses an absolute denial); (adverb) not, (conjunction) lest; also (as an interrogative implying a negative answer (whereas G3756 expects an affirmative one)) whether:—any but (that), × forbear, + God forbid, + lack, lest, neither, never, no (X wise in), none, nor, (can-)not, nothing, that not, un(-taken), without. Often used in compounds in substantially the same relations.]
b. slanderers [Strong: 1228 diábolos, dee-ab'-ol-os; from G1225; a traducer; specially, Satan (compare H7854):—false accuser, devil, slanderer.]
c. sober [Strong: 3524 nēpháleos, nay-fal'-eh-os; from G3525; sober, i.e. (figuratively) circumspect:—sober.]
d. faithful [Strong: 4103 pistós, pis-tos'; from G3982; objectively, trustworthy; subjectively, trustful:—believe(-ing, -r), faithful(-ly), sure, true.]
e. in [Strong: 1722 en, en; a primary preposition denoting (fixed) position (in place, time or state), and (by implication) instrumentality (medially or constructively), i.e. a relation of rest (intermediate between G1519 and G1537); "in," at, (up-)on, by, etc.:—about, after, against, + almost, × altogether, among, × as, at, before, between, (here-)by (+ all means), for (… sake of), + give self wholly to, (here-)in(-to, -wardly), × mightily, (because) of, (up-)on, (open-)ly, × outwardly, one, × quickly, × shortly, (speedi-)ly, × that, × there(-in, -on), through(-out), (un-)to(-ward), under, when, where(-with), while, with(-in). Often used in compounds, with substantially the same import; rarely with verbs of motion, and then not to indicate direction, except (elliptically) by a separate (and different) preposition.]
g. all [things] [Strong: 3956 pâs, pas; including all the forms of declension; apparently a primary word; all, any, every, the whole:—all (manner of, means), alway(-s), any (one), × daily, + ever, every (one, way), as many as, + no(-thing), X thoroughly, whatsoever, whole, whosoever.]
