1 Timothy 5:14 Parallel
CommentaryVincent's Word Studies
That the younger women marry (νεωτέρας γαμεῖν)
Better, the younger widows. This seems to be required by οὖν therefore, connecting the subject of the verb with the class just described. They are enjoined to marry, rather than to assume a position in the church which they might disgrace by the conduct described in 1 Timothy 5:11-13. Comp. 1 Corinthians 7:8, 1 Corinthians 7:9.
Bear children (τεκνογονεῖν)
N.T.o. olxx, oClass. Comp. τεκνογονία childbearing, 1 Timothy 2:15.
Guide the house (οἰκοδεσποτεῖν)
Better, rule the house. N.T.o. olxx, oClass. Ὁικοδεσπότης master of the house is quite common in the Synoptic Gospels.
See on Romans 7:8.
To the adversary (τῷ ἀντικειμένῳ)
To speak reproachfully (λοιδορίας χάριν)
Lit. in the interest of reviling. Const. with give on occasion. Λοιδορία reviling only here and 1 Peter 3:9. For the verb λοιδορεῖν to revile see John 9:28; Acts 23:4; 1 Corinthians 4:12; and note on John 9:28.
Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

1 Timothy 6:1
Let all who are under a yoke as bondservants regard their own masters as worthy of all honor, so that the name of God and the teaching may not be reviled.
