2 Therefore I 1exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, 2 afor kings and ball who are in 2authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and 3reverence. 3 For this is cgood and acceptable in the sight dof God our Savior, 4 ewho desires all men to be saved fand to come to the knowledge of the truth. 5 gFor there is one God and hone Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, 6 iwho gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time, 7 jfor which I was appointed a preacher and an apostle—I am speaking the truth 4in Christ and not lying—ka teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.
8 I desire therefore that the men pray leverywhere, mlifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting; 9 in like manner also, that the nwomen adorn themselves in modest apparel, with propriety and 5moderation, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or costly clothing, 10 obut, which is proper for women professing godliness, with good works. 11 Let a woman learn in silence with all submission. 12 And pI do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man, but to be in silence. 13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve. 14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell into transgression. 15 Nevertheless she will be saved in childbearing if they continue in faith, love, and holiness, with self-control.
