1 I exhort therefore that above all things, prayers, supplications, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be had for all men: 2 for kings, and for all that are in authority that we may live a quiet and a peaceable life, in all godliness and honesty. 3 For that is good and accepted in the sight of god our saviour, 4 which will have all men saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and man, which is the man Christ Jesus, 6 which gave himself a ransom for all men, that it should be testified at his time;
7 whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle - I tell the truth in Christ and lie not - being the teacher of the gentiles in faith and verity.
8 I will, therefore, that the men pray every where, lifting up pure hands without wrath, or doubting. 9 Likewise also the women, that they array themselves in comely apparel with shamefastness, and discreet behavior, not with broided hair, other gold, or pearls, or costly array: 10 but with such as becometh women that profess the worshipping of God through good works. 11 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. 12 I suffer not a woman to teach, neither to have authority over the man: but for to be in silence. 13 For Adam was first formed, and then Eve. 14 Also Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived, and was in transgression. 15 Notwithstanding, through bearing of children they shall be saved, so they continue in faith, love, and holiness with discretion.
