|1 Tim 2:1 First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men,
|1 Tim 2:2 for kings and all who are in authority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity.
|1 Tim 2:3 This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior,
|1 Tim 2:4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
|1 Tim 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,
|1 Tim 2:6 who gave Himself as a ransom for all, the testimony given at the proper time.
|1 Tim 2:7 For this I was appointed a preacher and an apostle (I am telling the truth, I am not lying) as a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.
|1 Tim 2:8 ¶ Therefore I want the men in every place to pray, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and dissension.
|1 Tim 2:9 Likewise, I want women to adorn themselves with proper clothing, modestly and discreetly, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly garments,
|1 Tim 2:10 but rather by means of good works, as is proper for women making a claim to godliness.
|1 Tim 2:11 A woman must quietly receive instruction with entire submissiveness.
|1 Tim 2:12 But I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man, but to remain quiet.
|1 Tim 2:13 For it was Adam who was first created, and then Eve.
|1 Tim 2:14 And it was not Adam who was deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell into transgression.
|1 Tim 2:15 But women will be preserved through the bearing of children if they continue in faith and love and sanctity with self-restraint.
