THE FIRST EPISTLE
PAUL THE APOSTLE
1 Timothy 2 ©
1 Paul commands to pray for all people, but especially for kings and other authorities. 3 Seeing the same is acceptable to God, and Christ is Mediator of all. 8 Commands men that they lift up holy hands in all places. 9 But the women, who in a modest attire, and in all quietness they should receive instruction. 12 Not being allowed to teach others in public, or rule over the man. 13 Forasmuch as Adam was first created, and the woman first deceived. 15 Testifies notwithstanding that by faith she shall be saved in childbearing.
I EXHORT therefore, that, first of all, 1supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be 2made for 3all men;
Fora kings, and for all that are in authority; 4that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all 5godliness and honesty.
For 6this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
Whob will have 7all men to be saved, and to come unto the 8knowledge of the truth.
Forcthere is 9one God, and oned mediator between God and men, 10the man Christ Jesus;
Whoe gave himself 11a ransom 12for all, to be 13testified 14in due time.
15Whereunto I am ordainedf a 16preacher, and an apostle, (Ig speak the truth 17in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity.
I will therefore that men prayh18every where, liftingi up 19holy hands, without 20wrath and doubting.
Inj like manner also, that 21women adorn themselves 22in modest apparel, with shamefacednessk and sobriety; not with 23broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;
But (which becometh women 24professing godliness) with good works.
Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.
Butl I suffer not a woman 25to teach, norm to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.
Forn Adam was first formed, then Eve.
Ando Adam was 26not deceived, but the woman being deceived was 27in the transgression.
Notwithstanding she shall be saved 28in childbearing, if 29they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.
