1 Timothy 2

1 2 3 4 5 6
2:1 I exhort therefore, first of all, that supplications, prayers, intercessions, thanksgivings be made for all men;

2:2 for kings and all that are in dignity, that we may lead a quiet and tranquil life in all piety and gravity;

2:3 for this is good and acceptable before our Saviour God,

2:4 who desires that all men should be saved and come to [the] knowledge of [the] truth.

2:5 For God is one, and [the] mediator of God and men one, [the] man Christ Jesus,

2:6 who gave himself a ransom for all, the testimony [to be rendered] in its own times;

2:7 to which *I* have been appointed a herald and apostle, (I speak [the] truth, I do not lie,) a teacher of [the] nations in faith and truth.

2:8 I will therefore that the men pray in every place, lifting up pious hands, without wrath or reasoning.

2:9 In like manner also that the women in decent deportment and dress adorn themselves with modesty and discretion, not with plaited [hair] and gold, or pearls, or costly clothing,

2:10 but, what becomes women making profession of the fear of God, by good works.

2:11 Let a woman learn in quietness in all subjection;

2:12 but I do not suffer a woman to teach nor to exercise authority over man, but to be in quietness;

2:13 for Adam was formed first, then Eve:

2:14 and Adam was not deceived; but the woman, having been deceived, was in transgression.

2:15 But she shall be preserved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and love and holiness with discretion.
