1 Timothy 2

1:1 Christ, (b-5) Or, according to some authorities, 'Christ Jesus.'2:1 intercessions, (g-10) Personal and confiding intercourse with God on the part of one able to approach him, as Rom. 8.27,34; Heb. 7.25. 2:4 knowledge (h-13) Epignosis, as Col. 1.10, where it is translated 'true knowledge.' It is that which acknowledges the truth of a thing, and to know the truth thus suggests possession of it. But 'full knowledge' here would hardly be an appropriate translation, as it would imply a contrast with 'partial knowledge.' 2:5 mediator (i-7) Or 'there is one God and one mediator.' 2:6 for (k-6) Antilutron huper. a ransom in place of. 2:7 herald (l-8) Or 'preacher,' as 2Tim. 1.11; 2Pet. 2.5. 2:8 men (m-6) i.e. men in contrast to women. pious (a-13) Hosios, as 'holy,' Heb. 7.26. 2:9 dress (b-12) The whole deportment; the way in which the woman presents herself, of which dress is a sign. discretion, (c-18) i.e. 'sobriety' or with 'sound mind;' so ver. 15, as Rom. 12.3; 2Tim. 1.7. 2:12 man, (d-15) Or 'a man.'

See Note i at Rom. 1.4.
