1 TIMOTHY - Chapter 2

1 - I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;
2 - For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
3 - For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
4 - Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
5 - For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
6 - Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.
7 - Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity.
8 - I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting.
9 - In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;
10 - But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.
11 - Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.
12 - But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.
13 - For Adam was first formed, then Eve.
14 - And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.
15 - Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.
