1st Timothy 2
World English Bible
Previous Chapter 1st Timothy Next Chapter
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.
