Chapter 2

1

 

  I exhort therefore, first of all, that supplications, prayers, intercessions, thanksgivings be made for all men;  

 

 


2

 

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

 

 


3

 

  for this is good and acceptable before our Saviour God,  

 

 


4

 

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

 

 


5

 

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

 

 


6

 

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

 

 


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.  

 

 


8

 

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

 

 


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,  

 

 


10

 

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

 

 


11

 

  Let a woman learn in quietness in all subjection;  

 

 


12

 

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

 

 


13

 

  for Adam was formed first, then Eve:  

 

 


14

 

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

 

 


15

 

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

 

 


1st Timothy 3
