Appoint therefore for yourselves bishops and[*](Bishops and Deacons) deacons worthy of the Lord, meek men, and not lovers of money, and truthful and approved, for they also minister to you the ministry of the prophets and teachers.

Therefore do not despise them, for they are your honourable men together with the prophets and teachers.

And reprove one another not in wrath but in[*](Mutual reproofs) peace as you find in the Gospel, and let none speak with any who has done a wrong to his neighbour, nor let him hear a word from you until he repents.

But your prayers and alms and all your acts perform as ye find in the Gospel of our Lord.
