1 Timothy 2

A Call to Prayer

First of all, then, I urge that a entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men, b for kings and all who are in
Or a high position
authority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and
Or seriousness
This is good and acceptable in the sight of e God our Savior, f who desires all men to be g saved and to h come to the
Or recognition
knowledge of the truth.
For there is j one God, and k one mediator also between God and men, the l man Christ Jesus, who m gave Himself as a ransom for all, the n testimony
Or to be given
given at
Lit its own times
q the proper time.
r For this I was appointed a
Or herald
preacher and t an apostle ( u I am telling the truth, I am not lying) as a teacher of v the Gentiles in faith and truth.

Therefore w I want the men x in every place to pray y lifting up z holy hands, without wrath and dissension.

Women Instructed

Likewise, I want aa women to adorn themselves with proper clothing
Lit with modesty
modestly and discreetly, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly garments,
10 but rather by means of good works, as is proper for women making a claim to godliness. 11  ac A woman must quietly receive instruction with entire submissiveness. 12  ad But I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man, but to remain quiet. 13  ae For it was Adam who was first
Or formed
created, and then Eve.
14 And it was not Adam who was deceived, but ag the woman being deceived,
Lit has come
fell into transgression.
15 But women will be
Lit saved
preserved through the bearing of children if they continue in aj faith and love and sanctity with
Or discretion
