“Let not a widow be taken into the number under threescore years old, having been the wife of one man,”
King James Version (KJV)

We are prayerful for you Ms. Debra, and want to let you know the Lord will provide for you. Paul is admonishing Timothy how the Church was not to take into care widows under 60yrs. old. while having been married to one husband. Rather it is proper to marry again, if the Lord so moves. If the widow does not have children or grandchildren, then the Church should assist. True religion is to visit widows, and orphans in their time of affliction, and keep from being worldly. May the Lord bless you richly.

I am a widow at age 52. I don't understand 1 Timothy 5: 1-16. Please explain to me. My husband would always explain to me any part of the bible I did not understand. I miss him so much, it's very painful but, I just pray and that helps a lot.

I'm struggling to understand this. Although the woman I'm so in Love with isn't a widow. She is 59 and Im 40. She,not I struggle with this difference in age,yet she as I are so good together,a great couple,and Love and respect each other. I want to marry her! In fact,I have declared and decreed that Tricia and I marry,as bone of my bone,flesh of my flesh,be one serving The Lord,bringing His Love,Word,And Way to others all of our days the rest of our life!!! I'm interested in any comments,and or suggestions,for I have submitted this to The Lord,and please,please I ask to come into agreement with me,with us,and pray for us in this matter!?!? Thank you all,and God bless you all! Sincerly,in Christ Jesus, Eddie Jaramillo
