Return to Index

Chapter 2

1

 

  I exhort therefore, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and givings of thanks, be made for all men:  

 

 


2

 

  for kings and all who are in high places; that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and reverence.  

 

 


3

 

  For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God, our Savior;  

 

 


4

 

  who desires to have all men to be saved, and come to full 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 as a ransom for all; the testimony in its own times;  

 

 


7

 

  to which I was appointed a preacher and an apostle (I am telling the truth in Christ, not lying), a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.  

 

 


8

 

  I desire therefore that the men in every place pray, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting.  

 

 


9

 

  In the same way, that women also adorn themselves in decent clothing, with modesty and propriety; not just with braided hair, and gold or pearls or costly clothing;  

 

 


10

 

  but (which becomes women professing godliness) through good works.  

 

 


11

 

  Let a woman learn in quietness with all subjection.  

 

 


12

 

  But I don't permit a woman to teach, nor to exercise authority over a man, but to be in quietness.  

 

 


13

 

  For Adam was first formed, then Eve.  

 

 


14

 

  Adam wasn't deceived, but the woman, being deceived, has fallen into disobedience;  

 

 


15

 

  but she will be saved through her child-bearing, if they continue in faith, love, and sanctification with sobriety.
