This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

Let the deacons be Since he mentioned wives, he lays down the same injunction about deacons as he had formerly down about bishops; namely, that each of them — satisfied within having but one wife — shall set an example of a chaste and honorable father of a family, and shall keep his children and his whole house under holy discipline. And this refutes the error of those who understand this passage as referring to domestic servants. (65)



(65) “Des serviteurs domestiques, et non pas des diacres de l’.” — “ domestic servants, and not to the deacons of the Church.”
