1 Timothy 2
1 Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of
thanks be made for all men,
2 for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life
in all godliness and dignity.
3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior,
4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to a full true knowledge of the truth.
5 For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus,
6 who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time,
7 for which I was appointed a preacher and an apostle; I am speaking the truth in Christ
and not lying; a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.
8 I desire therefore that the men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath
9 in like manner also, that the women adorn themselves in appropriate apparel, with
propriety and moderation, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or costly clothing,
10 but, that which is proper for women professing godliness, with good works.
11 Let a woman learn in silence with all subjection.
12 And I do not permit a woman to teach or to usurp authority over a man, but to be in
13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve.
14 And Adam was not beguiled, but the woman being beguiled, fell into transgression.
15 Nevertheless she will be kept safe through childbearing if they continue in faith, love, and holiness, with self-control.
