The First Epistle of Paul the Apostle to Timothy

Return to Index

Chapter 2

1

 My desire is, first of all, that you will make requests and prayers and give praise for all men; 

2

 For kings and all those in authority; so that we may have a calm and quiet life in all fear of God and serious behaviour. 

3

 This is good and pleasing in the eyes of God our Saviour; 

4

 Whose desire is that all men may have salvation and come to the knowledge of what is true. 

5

 For there is one God and one peacemaker between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, 

6

 Who gave himself as an offering for all; witness of which was to be given at the right time; 

7

 And of this I became a preacher and an Apostle (what I say is true, not false,) and a teacher of the Gentiles in the true faith. 

8

 It is my desire, then, that in every place men may give themselves to prayer, lifting up holy hands, without wrath or argument. 

9

 And that women may be dressed in simple clothing, with a quiet and serious air; not with twisted hair and gold or jewels or robes of great price; 

10

 But clothed with good works, as is right for women who are living in the fear of God. 

11

 Let a woman quietly take the place of a learner and be under authority. 

12

 In my opinion it is right for a woman not to be a teacher, or to have rule over a man, but to be quiet. 

13

 For Adam was first formed, then Eve; 

14

 And Adam was not taken by deceit, but the woman, being tricked, became a wrongdoer. 

15

 But if they go on in faith and love and holy self-control, she will be kept safe at the time of childbirth. 

1st Timothy 3
