1 Timothy 2 World English Bible

Instructions concerning Prayer

2 1  I exhort therefore, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and givings of thanks, be made for all men: 2  for kings and all who are in high places; that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and reverence. 3  For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior; 4  who desires all people to be saved and come to full 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 as a ransom for all; the testimony in its own times; 7  to which I was appointed a preacher and an apostle (I am telling the truth in Christ, not lying), a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth. 8  I desire therefore that the men in every place pray, lifting up holy hands without anger and doubting.

9  In the same way, that women also adorn themselves in decent clothing, with modesty and propriety; not just with braided hair, gold, pearls, or expensive clothing; 10  but (which becomes women professing godliness) with good works. 11  Let a woman learn in quietness with all subjection. 12  But I don’t permit a woman to teach, nor to exercise authority over a man, but to be in quietness. 13  For Adam was first formed, then Eve. 14  Adam wasn’t deceived, but the woman, being deceived, has fallen into disobedience; 15  but she will be saved through her childbearing, if they continue in faith, love, and sanctification with sobriety.
