The First Epistle of Paul the Apostle to Timothy

Return to Index

Chapter 2

1

 I exhort therefore, first of all, that supplications, prayers, intercessions, thanksgivings be made for all men; 

2

 for kings and all that are in dignity, that we may lead a quiet and tranquil life in all piety and gravity; 

3

 for this is good and acceptable before our Saviour God, 

4

 who desires that all men should be saved and come to [the] knowledge of [the] truth. 

5

 For God is one, and [the] mediator of God and men one, [the] man Christ Jesus, 

6

 who gave himself a ransom for all, the testimony [to be rendered] in its own times; 

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. 

8

 I will therefore that the men pray in every place, lifting up pious hands, without wrath or reasoning. 

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, 

10

 but, what becomes women making profession of the fear of God, by good works. 

11

 Let a woman learn in quietness in all subjection; 

12

 but I do not suffer a woman to teach nor to exercise authority over man, but to be in quietness; 

13

 for Adam was formed first, then Eve: 

14

 and Adam was not deceived; but the woman, having been deceived, was in transgression. 

15

 But she shall be preserved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and love and holiness with discretion. 

1st Timothy 3
