Elders
Numbers 8:23-26 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
  This is it that belongeth unto the Levites: from twenty and five years old and upward they shall go in to wait upon the service of the tabernacle of the congregation:
  And from the age of fifty years they shall cease waiting upon the service thereof, and shall serve no more:
  But shall minister with their brethren in the tabernacle of the congregation, to keep the charge, and shall do no service. Thus shalt thou do unto the Levites touching their charge.
Acts 14:23 And when they had ordained them elders in every church, and had prayed with fasting, they commended them to the Lord, on whom they believed.
Acts 20:28 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.
Romans 12:4-8 For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office:
  So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.
  Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;
  Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching;
  Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness.
1 Timothy 5:1-2 Rebuke not an elder, but intreat him as a father; and the younger men as brethren;
  The elder women as mothers; the younger as sisters, with all purity.
1 Timothy 5:17-20 Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.
  For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward.
  Against an elder receive not an accusation, but before two or three witnesses.
  Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.
Titus 1:5-9 For this cause left I thee in Crete, that thou shouldest set in order the things that are wanting, and ordain elders in every city, as I had appointed thee:
  If any be blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of riot or unruly.
  For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre;
  But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate;
  Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.
Titus 2:1-7 But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine:
  That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience.
  The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;
  That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,
  To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.
  Young men likewise exhort to be sober minded.
  In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity,
Hebrews 13:17 Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.
1 Peter 5:1-10 The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed:
  Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind;
  Neither as being lords over God's heritage, but being ensamples to the flock.
  And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.
  Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.
  Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
  Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
  Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.
  But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.
