1 Timothy 2


Pray for All Men

1I appeal then, first of all to make supplications, prayers, intercessions, thankfulnesses for all men; 2for kings, and all of the ones [2in 3superiority 1being], that a calm and unassuming existence should be led in all piety and seriousness. 3For this is good and worthy of being received before [2our deliverer 1God]; 4who [2all 3men 1wants] to be delivered, and [2to 3full knowledge 4of truth 1to come]. 5For there is one God, and one mediator of God and of men -- the man Christ Jesus; 6the one giving himself a ransom for all, the testimony to be rendered [2times 1in its own]; 7to which I was established a herald and apostle (truth I speak in Christ, I do not lie) a teacher of the nations in belief and truth. 8I want then [3to pray 1for the 2men] in every place, lifting up sacred hands, separate from anger and arguing.

Instructions to Wives

9Likewise also the wives in [2apparel 1composed] with respect and discreetness to adorn themselves, not in laces or gold or pearls or [2clothes 1very costly], 10but what is becoming to wives promising godliness through [2works 1good]. 11[2a wife 4at 5rest 1Let 3learn] in all submission! 12And a wife [4to teach 2not 1I commit 3to their care], nor to domineer a husband, but to be at rest. 13For Adam first was shaped, then Eve. 14And Adam was not deceived, but the wife having been deceived, [2in 3violation 1has become]. 15But she shall be preserved through the childbearing, if they abide in belief, and love, and sanctification, with discreetness.
