1 Timothy 2
That it is meet to pray and give thanks for all men, and the reason why.
1 Timothy 2:1 I exhort therefore, first of all, that supplications, prayers, intercessions, thanksgivings be made for all men; 1 Timothy 2:2 for kings and all that are in dignity, that we may lead a quiet and tranquil life in all piety and gravity; 1 Timothy 2:3 for this is good and acceptable before our Saviour God, 1 Timothy 2:4 who desires that all men should be saved and come to [the] knowledge of [the] truth. 1 Timothy 2:5 For God is one, and [the] mediator of God and men one, [the] man Christ Jesus, 1 Timothy 2:6 who gave himself a ransom for all, the testimony [to be rendered] in its own times; 1 Timothy 2:7 to which *I* have been appointed a herald and apostle, (I speak [the] truth, I do not lie,) a teacher of [the] nations in faith and truth. 1 Timothy 2:8 I will therefore that the men pray in every place, lifting up pious hands, without wrath or reasoning.
How women should be attired.
1 Timothy 2:9 In like manner also that the women in decent deportment and dress adorn themselves with modesty and discretion, not with plaited [hair] and gold, or pearls, or costly clothing, 1 Timothy 2:10 but, what becomes women making profession of the fear of God, by good works. 1 Timothy 2:11 Let a woman learn in quietness in all subjection;
They are not permitted to teach.
1 Timothy 2:12 but I do not suffer a woman to teach nor to exercise authority over man, but to be in quietness; 1 Timothy 2:13 for Adam was formed first, then Eve: 1 Timothy 2:14 and Adam was not deceived; but the woman, having been deceived, was in transgression.
They shall be saved, notwithstanding the testimonies of God's wrath, in childbirth, if they continue in faith.
1 Timothy 2:15 But she shall be preserved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and love and holiness with discretion.
