1 Timothy 2

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6]

2:1 I exhort therefore, first of all, that supplications, prayers, intercessions, thanksgivings, be made for all men;

2:2 for kings and all that are in high place; that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and gravity.

2:3 This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;

2:4 who would have all men to be saved, and come to the knowledge of the truth.

2:5 For there is one God, one mediator also between God and men, `himself' man, Christ Jesus,

2:6 who gave himself a ransom for all; the testimony `to be borne' in its own times;

2:7 whereunto I was appointed a preacher and an apostle (I speak the truth, I lie not), a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.

2:8 I desire therefore that the men pray in every place, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and disputing.

2:9 In like manner, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefastness and sobriety; not with braided hair, and gold or pearls or costly raiment;

2:10 but (which becometh women professing godliness) through good works.

2:11 Let a woman learn in quietness with all subjection.

2:12 But I permit not a woman to teach, nor to have dominion over a man, but to be in quietness.

2:13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve;

2:14 and Adam was not beguiled, but the woman being beguiled hath fallen into transgression:

2:15 but she shall be saved through her child-bearing, if they continue in faith and love and sanctification with sobriety.
