1 Timothy 5:8 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Provide (προνοεῖ)

See on Romans 12:17.

His own - those of his own house (τῶν ἰδίων - οἰκείων)

His own relations, see on John 1:11. Those who form part of his family, see on Galatians 6:10.

He hath denied the faith (τὴν πίστιν ἤρνηται)

The verb not in Paul, but Quite often in Pastorals. The phrase only here and Revelation 2:13. Faith demands works and fruits. By refusing the natural duties which Christian faith implies, one practically denies his possession of faith. Faith does not abolish natural duties, but perfects and strengthens them" (Bengel). Comp. James 2:14-17.

Infidel (ἀπίστου)

Better, unbeliever. One who is not a Christian, as 1 Corinthians 6:6; 1 Corinthians 7:12, 1 Corinthians 7:13, etc. Even an unbeliever will perform these duties from natural promptings.
