1 I exhort, therefore, first of all, that supplications, prayers, intercessions, thanksgivings, be made for all men; 2 for kings, and all who are in high position, that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and gravity. 3 This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, 4 Who wisheth all men to be saved, and to come into a full knowledge of truth.
5 For there is one God, one Mediator also between God and men, a Man, Christ Jesus, 6 Who gave Himself a ransom for all, the testimony for its own times,
7 whereunto I was appointed a preacher and an apostle (I speak truth, I lie not), a teacher of gentiles in faith and truth.
8 I desire, therefore, that the men pray in every place, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and disputing; 9 in like manner, that women adorn themselves in becoming apparel, with modesty and sobriety, not with braided hair, and gold, or pearls, or costly raiment, 10 but (which becomes women professing godliness) through good works. 11 Let a woman in quietness learn in all subjection. 12 But I permit not a woman to teach, nor to have dominion over a man, but to be in quietness. 13 For Adam first was formed, then Eve. 14 And Adam was not deceived; but the woman, being deceived, has fallen into transgression. 15 But she shall be saved through her child-bearing, if they abide in faith, and love, and holiness, with sobriety.
