I am no preacher, but, am a prime sinner and living in this world in HIS mercy. For a sinner like me too, when I read “The Holy Bible” KJV,  the following verses were given in the context of “bishop”.

bishop’ wikipedia meaning 

A bishop (English derivation[a][1][2][3] from the New Testament of the Christian Bible Greek ἐπίσκοπος, epískopos, “overseer”, “guardian”) is an ordained, consecrated, or appointed member of the Christian clergy who is generally entrusted with a position of authority and oversight.

Act 1:20 For it is written in the book of Psalms,
Let his habitation be desolate,
and let no man dwell therein:
and his bishoprick let another take.

Phi 1:1 Paul and Timotheus, the servants of Jesus Christ,
to all the saints in Christ Jesus which are at Philippi,
with the bishops and deacons:

2. Grace be unto you,
and peace, from God our Father,
and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

1Ti 3:1 This is a true saying,
If a man desire the office of a bishop,
he desireth a good work.

1Ti 3:2 A bishop then must be blameless,
the husband of one wife,
vigilant,
sober,
of good behaviour,
given to hospitality,
apt to teach;

2Ti 4:22 The Lord Jesus Christ be with thy spirit.
Grace be with you. Amen.
< The second epistle unto Timotheus,
ordained the first bishop of the church of the Ephesians,
was written from Rome,
when Paul was brought before Nero the second time.>

Tit 1:7 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;

Tit 3:15 All that are with me salute thee.
Greet them that love us in the faith.
Grace be with you all. Amen.
< It was written to Titus,
ordained the first bishop of the church of the Cretians,
from Nicopolis of Macedonia.>

1Pe 2:25 For ye were as sheep going astray;
but are now returned unto the Shepherd
and Bishop of your souls.
