2 I ||aexhort therefore, that, first of all, bdsupplications, bdprayers, cintercessions, and dgiving of thanks, be made for all men; 2 eFor kings, and for fall that are in ||authority; that we may lead a gquiet and peaceable life in all godliness and hhonesty. 3 iFor this is good and acceptable in the sight of kGod our Saviour; 4 lWho will have all men to be saved, and mto come unto the knowledge of the truth. 5 For nthere is one God, and one omediator between God and men, pthe man Christ Jesus; 6 qWho gave himself a ransom for all, ||to be testified rin due time. 7 sWhereunto I am ordained a preacher, and tan apostle, (I uspeak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a vteacher of the Gentiles in faith and vvverity. 8 I will therefore that men pray wevery where, xlifting up yholy hands, without wrath and zdoubting. 9 In like manner also, that awomen adorn themselves in modest apparel, with aashamefacedness and bsobriety; not with ||broided hair, or gold, or bbpearls, or costly carray; 10 dBut (which becometh women professing egodliness) with fgood works. 11 Let the woman learn in gsilence hwith all subjection. 12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in gsilence. 13 For iAdam was first formed, kthen Eve. 14 And Adam was not deceived, but lthe woman being deceived was in the transgression. 15 Notwithstanding she shall be saved min childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness bwith sobriety.
